Christmas!! Christmas!!!

is she really doing a Christmas card already? YES i am!! hehe!! never too early... LOL

actually i made this card for TGF's FFCB Farm Fresh Friday challenge last week which was to create a FAV Holiday... after much discussion about what really was my fave holiday, i went with Christmas...
on this card i used TGF's Snow Anya paired with some pretty (sorta non-traditional) color DP... LOVE this pretty paper and glad i stashed it away... the colors are fun and lively... the white parts of her coat and boots are flocked and can't really tell just looking at the pix but there is some glitter on the image too... i found the snowflake charm in my charm stash and the sentiment is from Studio G... got a little playful with the LO as i wanted to use as much of the different DPs i could possibly fit!

so why is Christmas my fave holiday?!? well, there is sentimentally reasons for other holidays too, like thanksgiving, a day of thanks and Easter, but Christmas is one holiday i feel we can celebrate longer than a day... yes it has a specific day, but we get to enjoy the season for months before that day even comes... i LOVE looking at lights that decorate houses and trees, and the decorations set up at malls... it truly is the MERRIEST time of year... and if you're like me, i put up my tree on Thanksgiving day so i can enjoy it longer... if i really had my way, the tree would stay up all year... LOL... only thing missing is a "white" Christmas... if only it snowed in Hawaii... our white Christmas is purely RAIN!! LOL...

come back and visit tomorrow for another card creation!! don't want to overwhelm you too much!! hehe! Thanks for stopping by!!
