Wanna Party?



This is a free image I snagged from Bugaboo Stamps not long ago. Isn't she a cutie all dressed up in Christmas attire. She's ready to party, or maybe she's had one too many parties! I think she kind of sums up what I look like after having to take all the decorations down after Christmas. I really don't usually mind putting everything up, but taking it down in another story! Maybe I just need two homes so I can leave it all up all year in one home and live in the other one!

This wonderful layout is for a sketch challenge that is going on at Bugaboo right now. I really like the layout - pretty well clean and simple.

I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder on the red background and the patterned paper is from Paper Studio. The snowflakes were made with a MS punch.
Thanks for stopping by...............

Awww, Lynn! She is too cute! She needs to get together with that little guy with the bongos from your other card. Whoo hoo! Get that party started! Haha! :) I LOVE your layout and all the fun polka dots. I'm getting in the mood to dig out the holiday decor myself! :)

Ok, this one is just too funny, love it! She so looks like me at the end of Christmas day, is it over yet. I agree about the undecorated part, funny how everyone wants to help putting it up, but taking it down, I hear crickets.

Ha-ha, great idea to have two homes to ease the pain of removing decorations. Terrific card!

She is so cute, Lynn. I love her Christmas tree hat and shoes. And the papers are just right. The red embossed paper looks great.

And you are so right about getting the decorations down... I thought only I was that way... comforting to know that there is someone out there like me. I love getting the tree dressed up but just don't come round to getting it undressed!!! Lazy or what, I don't know!
