MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!

Hello everyone and Merry Christmas to all of you.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas day surrounded by loved ones.  For those who don't celebrate Christmas, I wish you and safe and fabulous day surrounded by family and friends.  Our Christmas morning began early - the kids awoke around 3am to find that Santa had left a nice stash of gifts for them.  They never went back to sleep but weren't allowed to open gifts until 8am when the grown-ups got up - although we were all pretty much awake with all the chattering going on downstairs by the tree.

I made the card below for my babysitter, Caitlin, who is a Christmas baby and turned 21 today!  Caitlin has been watching my kids since she was 15 so it is cool to see her reach another milestone:)



I have used "Maisy Muff" image from DI'S DIGI DOWNLOADS for my card.  This image is so cute and I love the little penguin.  I colored the image with Copics and Fiskars glitter gel pens then cut with Nesties and added Stickles for the fur trim on her hat and on her muff and also for the snow.  Papers are Core-dinations CS, DCWV DP and silver speckled vellum that I embossed with Sizzix folder - also did that on the pink piece.  Sentiments are from Darcie's Heart and Home (Christmas) and Pink By Design (Birthday).  I added brown lace from my stash and bling flourish from Prima.

This card was also made for our challenge at KABOODLE DOODLES "O Christmas Tree,"  which runs through late tonight, so get your entries linked up over there!

GINGERLOFT - winter or Christmas
