Magic All Around

Nothing like waiting until the last minute! Today's card is for November's Sketch For You to Try. And yes, today is the last day to get it done. I really didn't want to skip since I've done all the other months so far. And frankly I need all the Christmas cards I can possibly get made these days. 

I used a new image, Sugar Nellie Tatania. I've had it a while but had not managed to get it inked up. After coloring her up, I did a lot of fussy cutting since I wanted to superimpose her over the small village in the Webster's Pages dp. Believe me I was re-thinking that decision while I was cutting away. I added Ranger Stickles on the wings and cuffs for a bit of sparkle and then attached to the background panel with dimensional dots. I finished things off with a few rhinestones and my favorite white satin ribbon. The paper is from the Webster's Pages Winter Fairy/Botanical Christmas 6x6 pad.

It is super busy around here as I'm sure it is at your house. I've finished my Christmas decorating although we still need to get lights strung outside. I haven't done much shopping yet except for a few things here and there. Unfortunately I'm suffering with a really bad cold which has really hindered my progress. I'm taking the day off from all house activities today in hopes that the rest will put me back on the road to good health. I don't have time to be sick!
