Christmas Stampin' All Year Long Challenge #26 and blog award

I have been wanting to do those Christmas Stampin' All Year Long Challenges for a while and finally got around to doing it. This week's sketch is by Maria Bell:

and here is my take on the sketch:

Used Nancy Kubo's Happy Holidays Graphics and Snowbeary Friends Paper Set from Little Dreamer Designs
tons of Stickles and flocking too, hehe.

Really like this idea of making Christmas cards all year long, cause you know how it seems to just sneak up on you, lol.

I also received this wonderful award from Linda, who is just the sweetest! I would love to pass this on to all of my blogging friends out there that inspire me daily, oh my list would be endless! Thanks Linda, can't wait to see you this weekend!

The Christmas season has come to mean the period when the public plays Santa Claus to the merchants. Keep it up.
