have a VERY MERRY Christmas!

   I made this with the papers in my Artful Delight December card kit.  November's kit was more wintery/Christmas and yet I created two cards (party hat and love card) that were NOT Wintery/Christmas.  The sentiment stamp and liquid appliqué are both from the Artful Delight November kit.  The December kit is definitely not wintery/Christmas, so I challenged myself to create a Christmas card with it.  Just a peek into how my brain works :)
The liquid appliqué just adds a little pizazz, don't you think?  A few weeks ago when I purchased my Cricut 3 Birds on Parade cartridge, I knew I would likely become one of my most used cartridges.  This Santa bird is so adorable.
  I cut him as soon as I got my December Artful Delight card kit, but I couldn't come up with a sketch for the card.  He has been sitting on my craft table for three weeks!  Then I saw this sketch:
I fell in love with Jen's card for her Deconstructed Sketch challenge 31.  My Santa bird finally had a home :)

  All Artful Delight card kits are sold out...but don't miss out!  You can pre-order your January kit or you have a chance to win it.  Follow the Artful Delight sketch and link your card or LO to the right side bar at the Artful Delight blog.  YOU could be the lucky random winner!  Contest closes 12/24/11 @ 1:59AM CST.  There are a couple of scrapbook kits still available; they contain even more delightful paper and the paper is 12x12 rather than 6x6.

Happy Wednesday!

June this is such a cute little Santa Bird. Stopped by from MPS and had to look at other projects. You have some really cute cards. Love the different technique's you use, such as the Applique shine and the Sketch card LO. That would help the process for sure.

Happy Holidays!
