All Wrapped Up



I was hard at work making this card, coloring the image, getting the layout I wanted, etc..when hubby walked through the room! STOP - Put on the brakes - WHOA! "Hey", he said, "now THAT IS WHAT I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS!!!" How easily they forget - I said, "Don't you remember that this is exactly how I looked before I got my hair cut?"!!!!! After a couple of "eye rolls" and him saying "Yeah right", I decided that I'd actually give this to him for Christmas. I'm thinking of putting it in a huge box and literally "wrapping it up"! So then I had to change the entire outlook on this card - and make it to look like a little wrapped up gift!


Stamps R Us is having a challenge to submit a holiday card. Anyone can play AND the winner will receive 7 free images from Bugaboo! Plus the winner and the top three will get a badge to put on their sidebar! BE SURE and check out the Stamps R Us blog today - you still have one more week to submit your entry! This little sassy lady is just one of the many images that Bugaboo has to offer.


I'll be entering this in the following challenges:
