Merry Christmas to one and all!

I suspect I am a little sad to be posting Christmas Cards on my blog at 1.30 am on Boxing Day Morning.   I napped for most of the afternoon and so now I am wide awake!  I do hope you all had a lovely Christmas!  Ours was very different from our usual celebrations but no less enjoyable for the change.

Anyway this was my final Christmas Card for 2009 - one for my fabulous hubby!

The window is cut with my Cricut and pasted onto a Christmas view from one of last year's Christmas cards.  A House Mouse image is flying by the window and another (with a sweet tooth) appears on the base of the card.  Both were coloured with Promarkers as was my bow and the SeeDs garland on the window sill.  There is a little spica pen on all of the red ribbons to add some sparkle.  The Poinsettia and gift parcels are by Jolee's Boutique and the sentiments are by Crafty Bitz.  The paper on the base of the card is DCWV highlighted with chalks and the "wallpaper" is by Stampin Up.

I enjoyed making this - my final card for the year - but I have to say I am really looking forward to NOT making any more Christmas Cards for a while!  

Hubby bought me Copics Sketch markers to use with my Promarkers, amongst other things, and I am one lucky girl!

Warmest wishes for the Holiday season and the New Year!
