here' mine...
can you guess what song inspired my creation?!? haha! dead giveaway!!! anyway, while prepping my card for this challenge i stumbled across TGF's Cheeky Christmas set and knew what song i had in mind... then i went in between 2 songs... Santa Baby or Merry Christmas Darling.... no matter what time of year it is, i'm always singing Merry Christmas Darling in my head (one of my FAVE Christmas melodies) so that was a given... i used sketch #4 over at TGF's FFCB WOW challenge and went searching for some Christmas scraps... and that made my card! i fun flocked all the white parts of the image, computer generated the sentiment, punched and layered some snowflakes, gave a little glitz on her eyelids, embossed the white circle she is against and tadduh!! easy peasy... then after making this card, many other songs (not Christmas related) kept coming to mind, but i've been so busy this weekend i couldn't fit in to work on another...

Thank you for visiting... enjoy the rest of today and come back here tomorrow (unless by some miracle i have another creation done, LOL) for more exciting news... stay tuned because it's going to be a fun filled crafty week with things you don't want to miss!!
