Almost Time to Deck the Halls

It's almost time to deck the halls and this little birdbrain can be found at From the Heart Stamps to help you along.  I'm on a roll getting Christmas cards completed since I usually try to mail them out soon after Thanksgiving.  You notice I say "try"!  Maybe this year I'll actually do it too.

This was a free image if you played along last month in the progressive challenge at From the Heart.  If you didn't play along you can always find it in the store.  I used a swirly type embossing folder, scrap of patterned paper, and red cardstock.   I just had to add those sequins and twine with this little guy too.

Let's see.....I took mice over to the Playground for Pixie's Crafty Workshop on Monday - and now I'm taking a birdbrain for my snippets card.  Um.....I wonder what's going to be next?

Thanks for stopping by.........
Lynn

Love this cute little birdbrain. Great design and love the festive stripes over the swirls of embossing. The double circle treatment looks really nice on this image, ditto the 'jewels' that echo the ornaments. TFS & Hugs
