The Holidays are here!

I have officially started the Christmas holidays here at our house!  Amidst the packing and the stress, I made the first Christmas card of 2010!  For this card challenge, I used the image provided called "Harriet".  Since I am a sucker for all things vintage, she stole my heart!  Go over to Waltzing Mouse Stamp blog, and check out all of the gorgeous cards submitted for this challenge! I'll also be able to submit it at the Waltzing Mouse Sketch challenge (see below).  Talk about "two birds with one stone"!  That's good, because these days, I barely have time to figure out what's getting moved, and what isn't!  I love Freecycle!

The papers used were all Bo Bunny, and I used my Copics to add her personality and that cute little ermine coat!  You can't really see it well in the photo, but the gift is silver and her hair bow is gold.  Both I colored with Sakura pens.  She looks just like she stepped out of a Charles Dickens book.
Thanks for looking!  Have a pleasant 'hump-day"!

Here is the sketch for this week's Waltzing Mouse Sketch challenge!  Easy Peasy!
This card was also entered in the Skipping Stones sketch challenge with a very similiar sketch!
