Let the Shopping Begin!

Good morning! Hope everyone had a great weekend, I know I did. I officially started my Christmas shopping. Every year I say that I am going to start early and get all my shopping finished so I can enjoy the few weeks before Christmas. This is the time I like to bake and just enjoy time with the family. So with one present down, perhaps I will actually meet that goal this year.

I wanted to share with you my latest card. I just LOVE this little girl. Her name is "Maddie" and she is from the Lacy Sunshine Collection. Her friend "Clover" has accompanied her on her shopping trip in style by sitting on top of her head. The look on her face is classic. Kinda looks like me after I have done a full day of shopping. But She certainly has the right idea and appears to have completed most of her shopping!

I embellished the card with a Christmas Tree in the background and decorated it with gems. I also included a wrapped Christmas present to sit underneath the tree.  I finished the card off with a simple message of "Season's Greeting."  This has turned into one of my favorite cards. I hope you like it.
