A little Christmas...

TGIF!!  Whoo hoo!  This seemed like a really long week!  I really shouldn't complain though, the girls will be  back in school before I know it.  I spent $20 yesterday just on tissue and hand sanitizer from the girls' school supply list! (Really?  They think they need 4 boxes of tissue per kid!?)  Don't they know I have important stamps to buy!! ;p

On Wednesday, my stamping buddy Kim came over.  We made it our mission to start on some Christmas cards.  The card I have today is for challenges at Anyone For Anya (Christmas theme), and the sketch from The Greeting Farm's Spilicoast Stampers challenge.

This is Simply Anya from TGF.

As you can see, I left her embellishment free, easier mailing.  This was a fun sketch, so I figured if I kept it interesting with fun paper, maybe I wouldn't miss a bunch of embellishments.  The paper I used is from a Teresa Collins Christmas paper pad.  The sentiment is one from a Unity Christmas stamp set, along with the mistletoe that I cut out and put in the corner of the image.  I love her little red lips!!

Have a great Friday everyone!  I will be back tomorrow with a few more xmas cards!



  1. Four boxes of tissue? Are they supposed to carry them around at all times? haha so strange :)
