have a cute little christmas

Hi, everyone!

Happy Trick or Treat! The local shopping center had a Halloween celebration last week. One merchants -- a little off the beaten path -- estimated 500 trick-or-treaters. Another merchant -- smack dab in the middle of the center -- said she gave out 1,200 pieces of candy. WOW!!!! I walked over for a couple of minutes and couldn't believe the turnout.

That said, I have a Christmas card to share, inspired by the current Jingle Belles and Sketch Saturday challenges.

I was so excited to pair up non-Christmas dp with an NBUS stamp to create this little holiday card.  :)

Stampin' Up! cardstock; Graphics 45 time to celebrate dp
Stampin' Up! image, in CTMH black and Versamark ink, heat embossed in clear powder, colored with Prismacolor pencils
Paper Smooches holly jolly sentiment, in Distress Ink walnut stain and Versamark ink, heat embossed in clear powder

SU linen thread; Wink of Stella

Short and sweet tonight! Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
