Merry Christmas Eve!!!
I hope that you all are settling down for a wonderful holiday with loved ones :)
We are just about ready for the festivities to begin!!! I still have some cleaning to do and some gifts to wrap - but all is good and we cannot wait to spend some wonderful quality time around the tree :)

I am very late posting my card for the latest Friday Spy Day at 
The Greeting Farm Challenge Blog yesterday! oops!
and I also want to share who my two blog candy winners are :)

First, my card :)
I decided to have a bit of fun with my new TE December Key Ingredients Kit
and pair it up with sweet Amelia from my 'new to me' TGF Surprise Stamp Set!

I also used the following challenges for my card:
- iCopic Weekly Challenge #61: Last minute Holiday projects
- Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #38: Anything Goes {with Twine}
- Wee Memories Challenge #80: Anything Goes
- The Sisterhood of Crafters: Celebrate the Holidays

I love her unruly hair! Kinda reminds me of my own hair - thick, wavy, messy! lol!
I tried to stick with the same layout as Beate's card, and a similar color combo - with different shades... and as you can see - I went a bit overboard with my Paper Pen again, hee hee! I am loving this stuff! More and more pearls everywhere!!!
It's not your typical Christmas card (hubs kept telling me to add green, lol!) but I love it! and I know that this little girly-girl will definitely love it too :)

Thanks for looking! and I hope you decide to play along with us this week!
Please be sure to check out the rest of the DTs creations too :)

PS - what do you think of my new blog makeover??? :) 

And now it's time to announce my TWO birthday blog candy winners :) 

Prize 1 goes to #11 Ashley N Newell 
and Prize 2 goes to #13 April!!! 

Congrats to you both!!! 
Please email me at TheBumbleGirl at with your addresses 
and I will try to ship these out to you next week!!!

Lots and lots of fun new things are coming in the New Year!!!
My blog is going to be hopping with fun new projects and releases!!! 
Be on the lookout for more candies along the way too :)
So don't forget to follow and come back often, hee hee!!! 

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas everyone!!!
