Cozy Winter Wishes

This sweet image reminds me of the pure, simple joy Christmas brought when I was a kid. My sister & I would turn all the lights off in the house & lay under the tree to watch the lights reflect off the limbs and the ceiling. (the tinsel too..remember the good ole tinsel from the 70's?!!! Couldn't put it too close to the lights or it would melt to them)
 Good times!
It's Friday YAY!! But also a little sad :( I have been having a lot of fun this week playing along with the Christmas in July mini challenges at Catch the Bug (today is anything goes) & I now have 5 more holiday cards in my file for this December. WOO HOO! I really like how this simple card turned out so I do believe I will be making a few more very similar. I may actually end up with enough homemade cards for my entire holiday card list this year! Hee Hee.... I have been pressed for time the past few years, so I have not sent out as many cards as I really wanted.
So on to the details! The sweet image is by Jodie over at Bugaboo, I colored with my Bic markers & then sponged a little chalk ink around him. I used some liquid applique for the "fuzzy" parts on the hat & the cuffs, added a chunk of ribbon, then added a little rub-on for the sentiment. The dp came from the same pack, but once again, I failed to pay attention to who it was by..I promiss to be better :)

I am also playing along with:
CPS, Their great CAS sketches work well with my crafting style
The Spotted Chick, That's Krafty Thursday #52
Sassy Studio Designs, Dare to be Sassy Thursday #82, CAS

Don't be surprised if you see me back again today... I have been on a creative spree this week! If not, HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!
