Baubles Christmas Challenge

Good morning everyone. Well I thought I was immune to the stomach flu, but lo and behold it hit me too last night. I went to bed at 5:00pm and slept until 7:00 this morning. Geesh I can't remember the last time I had 14 hours sleep. But I feel back to normal today. Thanks to DH for letting me take the night off and rest. The theme at Susie and Vikki's Christmas Challenge this week is Baubles. I used this cute Tilda hanging ornaments, but have to say this is not one of my favourite cards. It just didn't come together the way I intended. I initially coloured her to match a different DP with blue and yellow and probably should have stuck with it. I've reworked this a few times and uggh so here it is as is.... The sketch is Friday Sketchers.

I haven't noticed until now those lovely holes in her stockings until viewing your project, too cute!! I don't know how you envisioned this but I can tell you, your end result is fabulous!! Try the project again next week with the other papers :) It will be a cool compare and contrast for us!! I am glad to hear you got the rest you needed to kick the stomach flu.
Take Care,

It's funny how we see our work sometimes isn't it? I have a Penny Black easel card that I didn't care for but posted it any way and folks went mad for it. Likewise, if I was picking the challenge winner I'd pick this card! I love it.

Lori, even the cards you don't like look fab to the rest of us. Great job!!
