Christmas Flutter By

Good Morning! If you've been to my blog before you know that I used to do a Christmas card every Monday. Well we've finished that for the year and I'm having a little withdrawals. I like having something "due" - keeps me focused. So for my Flutter By card today I decided to do a Christmas Card.

The challenge this week is an open one - there is only ONE requirement...You MUST use a butterfly, fairy or angel (for the holiday season) on your card!! We've got to see them! Now take a moment and look at your supplies - I'm sure you have a butterfly, fairy or angel SOMEWHERE. It could be a stamp, paper, embellishment, die cut, sticker - you get the picture! So why don't you play along? We'd love to see your creation!! To play, just visit Danni's blog and link your card there by using Mr. Linky.

Before I share my card, I want to welcome THREE new team members. I'm so glad to be a part of this team and it just keeps getting better and better! These ladies are AMAZING - so talented and uber nice. Please take a moment and visit there blogs as well. Well without further ado lets welcome, PAM, KRIS and KAREN to the team!!! WELCOME ladies - I'm so glad you're here!!

Okay now for my card - I finally got to use a new stamp that's been just staring at me on my desk for WEEKS! I'm in love with the Swiss Pixies from C.C. Designs. So cute and fun to color! I colored her with my Copics and even cut out the ornament and popped it up (my blogging friend, Kim is famous for this!). I used a few Stickles (Crystal and Christmas Red) to add shimmer to the ornament and wings.


The paper is a pack from JoAnn's as is the Merry Christmas stamp. I adore the colors - some of my FAV's for the holiday season! I got the layout idea from an old Mojo Monday sketch. Here's a close up of the ornament:

So whatcha think? You likey likey? Are you starting to get in the holiday spirit? It's kind of hard not too as cold as it's been. We even got a little snow! And with all the decorations, sale ads, Christmas music - well it's definitely that time of year!! Today my friend, Ruth is flying in to spend a few days with me. We're going to have so much fun and on the top of our list is the NEW MOON premiere!! Already have our tickets and am looking forward to sharing the experience with someone that "gets it"! Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
