Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way!!


I am SO in the Christmas spirit. And to add to the mood, we FINALLY got a cool front here in Florida!! Notice I said, "COOL front". Yep, that's about it, but you should see us, we're all bundled up like it's sub zero weather!! Man, us Southern folk don't take to well to temps that dip below 70!! If it's in the 60's, you can bet your bottom dollar the parkas are out!! Of course, by 10:00am were peeling off clothes like nobody's bizness!! That's one thing to remember about Florida weather, ALWAYS dress in layers!!! Cuz it NEVER stays cold very long.

Ok, so here's Christmas card #45 for those of you keeping track. I'm almost there!!! This is Bella and Bronte singing Jingle Bells, from Mo's Digital Pencil. I can't get enough of Mo's images. Aren't they the cutest. I just love the detail Mo puts into her drawings. Did you notice her striped leggings. That's SO me!! I do love crazy socks!! So I printed my digital image onto some SU Very Vanilla CS and colored with my Copics. I wanted to add some "fuzzy" to her hat so I decided to try some of my Flower Soft in ivory to the brim. I think it looks so cute. I also added some Diamond Dust to the snow for a really cool icy look. (It looks so pretty IRL) I stitched the image onto some SU Real Red CS and then trimmed it close using my decorative scissors. The card base is SU Very Vanilla CS and I just got this new Collage Press DP in over the weekend, so I had to use it for my last few cards. I matted it with the SU Real Red CS and stitched around the edges. To finish, I added this cute SU polka dot ribbon and a few punched snowflakes dipped in Diamond Dust for a little more ice. So whaddaya think? I just LOVE it!! Be sure to leave a comment below and you all have a SUPER DUPER Tuesday!
