Here I am with yet another Christmas card.  I need to start early because I never know what I will need.  I would love to be able to give one to all.

This card is being done for our new challenge at the Love to Scrap Challenge Blog.  This fortnight our challenge is again everyone's favorite "Anything Goes".  Our three sponsors are

Prize: $10 gift certificate

Prize: $10 gift certificate to winner outside of Europe/3 images ($3.50 or less) to winner in Europe

Prize: 3 images of choice

The image I have been provided is called "Winter Snow Muff Shoujo" from Lemon Shortbread.  Isn't she totally adorable!  I love doing fur linings on images and this is no exception.  I also loved using the shimmer ink on yesterday's tag so I am using it again today.  You can't see it clearly in the picture but I needed the black to shimmer around the pearl card stock so I splashed it with the Golden Nugget shimmer mist.  I love how it shines.

I hope you will pop over to the LTSCB and check out all the lovely creations made to inspire you.  See you in the challenge!

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!

Very beautiful card! We are so blessed you joined us at Word Art Wednesday. A new Challenge just started today and will be glad to have you linked with us again. Leaving you an encouragement from God's Word found in Isaiah 12:2 which tells us, "Behold, God is my salvation,I will trust and not be afraid; For the Lord God is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation." Have a great week.
