It's a HOLIDAY Bellarific Friday!!


Woo-hoo!! And this is right up my alley cuz I so need to get a bunch of my Christmas cards finished. Whew!! Today's Bellarific Friday theme was Holiday or Christmas. So of course I couldn't resist using cutie patootie Mavis. Ain't she a doll?? I wuv Mavis!!

Ok, so I stamped "Mavis wearing Holly" onto some Bella's Bestest Paper and colored her with my Copics. I stitched her to a mat of SU Cherry Cobbler and adhered her to this cute DP from My Minds Eye's Signature Christmas collection I bought last year. Now, after the massive clean out of the old nest, I have promised myself NOT to buy new papers without TRYING to use up the older packs first. (Note the word TRYING!) I know, it's gonna be hard but I'm gonna do my BESTEST!!

Ok, onto the finishing touches!! I just LOVEEEE this snowflake design. I know I use it every year but I do love the look. Here's how ya do it. I took my larger EK Success snowflake punch and punched a snowflake from the SU Cherry Cobbler CS and then used my Martha Stewart snowflake punch with the SU Sahara Sand CS. Then I coated them both with some YES glue and dipped them into Diamond Dust and adhered them both with an older decorative brad. I know, I know.... no bow!! OMG, it's killin' me too!! But I thought it was already busy enough so I decided to stop there. **sigh**
