It's getting to be that time...

... at least for us cardmakers! I cannot believe that Halloween is just around the corner! and then Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here in a blink of an eye!
I have a short and sweet post to share with y'all today :)
I'm not feeling so good, again! I know, no matter how much I clean or Lysol, those germs just won't leave us alone...
I created this card using Sassy Studio Designs new "Trimming the Tree" digital image from the latest release for...
Green, Red and Blue

This is a fun image to color! I'm thinking that I would like to try to paper piece the tree and it's skirt next time - maybe her outfit too ;)
... and isn't that lil gift charm adorable?! I think that these lil doodads might become my next "interest"! LOL!

Hope you're feeling better real soon Margie!!! (I've also been sick with 'something' the past week and it seems like it just won't go away)

Hi Margie,
Your card is so cute! Such pretty DP and fab image!
You know what I think...I think that something is in the air. I got up early this morning and have been cleaning and sanitizing everything in the house. I don't want the kids to catch my germs! I know that they are fine here but when we venture outside, the germs are out there just waiting to attack. Especially when you run across people that sneeze and cough opening in the public. KWIM?!
Take care and try to have a great day.
