All Dressed Up for Christmas!

Tick-tock, Tick-tock... this month is half over and just a few more days until Christmas!  Today is a new release of All Dressed Up digi images and this little gal is aptly named All Dressed Up for Christmas and she is so perfect for the Clean and Simple Christmas theme we are running at the challenge blog right now.  There`s a few more sweet holiday images available so the hard part is deciding which one you want to use.  I coloured this with Copic markers and then added two of my favourite things... Frantage and Stickles!  The sentiment is one from Pink Petticoat`s Handwritten Christmas Greetings set.  I added the inked border to the card by using a .5 Copic Multi-Liner.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope your baking is getting done, the shopping is finished, the house is ready for company... it`s a busy time of year but one of my very favourites!
Challenges:
My Mum's Craft Shop - Winter/Christmas
Cardmaking Mamas - Christmas and New Year
CCEE Stampers - O Christmas Tree
