Toadstool Christmas

Hi there!!! Christmas is almost upon us, and the celebrations have been in full swing, for some people, for some time now!  Me?? I’m still trying to catch up!!! It doesn’t help that the original card I’d made for this post, I sold, believing that I had taken photos…..NOT!!!  Oh well, just a good excuse to play with the lovely Ching-Chou Kuik images 🙂  This is my last inspiration post for our December Facebook challenge….with the theme being Celebration. I used the adorable Toadstool Head image.  I colored her up with my Copics, adding some gel pen accents on the toadstool spots.

  I fussy cut her out, then popped her on to a stitched die cut shape.  I cut some holly leaves with a Sizzix die, and after scattering them around the image, added some gem stone “berries”.  The red velvet ribbon makes a nice contrast to the black and white Christmas word background paper, and ties in to the red card base.  I’m hoping that this is the last Christmas card I have to pop out…..but with my memory, I wouldn’t count on it….I’ll probably be coloring, cutting and gluing while preparing the turkey on the 25th!!!  But just in case…..I’d like to take this opportunity to wish anybody reading this a very Merry Christmas, full of love and laughter!!!
