Getting Ready for the Holidays

Hello to all my friends out there in cyber-land!   I want to show you a card I created for the Twisted Thursday challenge at the Outlawz!    The theme for this week is always Anything goes but the '"twist" for the week is Christmas Shopping. If you choose  to use the "twist" in your project, your name will go in for an extra chance to win the prize!  :D

We have some wonderful prizes from Anne Fenton and MarkerPop!   Hop on over and read all aobut it!   Yikes - I sound like I am selling newspapers on a street corner!  LOL

I used this wonderful image from Saturated Canary called Christmas Nutcracker.  I love doing hair on all the Saturated Canary images that Krista designs.  

I am linking this card with the following challenges.

It's late for me!  Just finished a  12 1/2 hour day in the ED and that makes for 14 1/2 hr day with my commute.   I am too pooped to putt!    I hope you stop by Friday and see our wonderful Blog Hop with CMC!      Take care, my friends!

  5. She actually makes shopping look fun!!! I don't see any crowds of grumpy pushy people on this card. LOL. She's gorgeous Marie. I hope while I'm typing my admiration for your keen coloring skills you are counting sheep. I'll type real quiet so I don't wake you up.
    Beautiful work my friend, as always!
