Will Winter EVER end?!

So I woke up this morning to snow covered ground, again. I know that it isn't unusual, I know that it WILL probably happen again-more than one more time before spring really settles in. but seriously, ENOUGH already! I am SOOOO ready for sunshine & 70 degrees!! I do have to say though, the cold weather we had this weekend did afford me a little time at my craft desk, which always feels good. So I was able to put together this lil somethin somethin to help me get ready for Christmas. Seems like I am always rushing to get cards made & out the door on time (some years I make it, most years I am cutting it very close!)

The cute image is a freebie from The Stamp Fairy for use in the ABC Christmas Challenge (along w/ a sketch). I colored it in w/ my pencils, added glossy accent on the nose & hat & added glitter on the hat for some fun sparkle. The star brads & sentiment are Making Memories I think-they came from the far back corner my hoarders drawer.

close up to show dimension & sparkle

 So maybe if I am a good girl & challenge myself to enter at least one Christmas themed challenge a month I won't be in such bad shape when December gets here!
