Still finishing up my Christmas Cards!

I must be one of the last of us cardmakers still working on their Christmas cards... next I need to get some in the mail! Yikes!  It's been so crazy here, with being away 6 out of the last 10 days, there hasn't been much time to get things done.

This is one of the cards I created during our crafty weekend in Jasper with Shana!  We both took our stamp collections along with us, and this is one I created with her 'Tilda hanging ornaments'.

It took us about half an hour to haul all of our stuff into our room... then we cheated at check-out and called the bell-hop!  Poor guy, he sure earned his tip!  lol

Here's a close-up, hopefully you can see the sparkle on the tops of the ornaments :)

Skin- E000, E00, E02 ; Hair- E30, E33, E34, E35, E37
Pants- E40, 41, 47 (with lots of palette blending!!)
Shirt, socks, ornament- YG01, YG03, YG17, YG67
red ornament- R27, 29 ; lace- E40
gold touches- Y23, Atyou Spica pen)

The sentiment is a freebie from Bizzy Bec's, you can find it here.  The paper is by Imaginisce.

Still one more project to post tonight!  Don't forget to check out my candy here.  Thanks for stopping by!

Super coloring.

Absolutely delightful, Christine! Bravo, you're still working on your cards and you didn't give up. Ya's okay if cards arrive just a little late, everyone loves to receive a warm greeting at this time of year...
