But Grandma... what a big BOW you have!!

I know... I KNOW!!!  I got a little carried away with the bow!!!  Heehee... I can't look at this picture without giggling!  I've been fighting myself on this one.  I had a little white felt Christmas  tree I worked up, embellished and added to the card.  It was OK, but I just wasn't feeling it.  So I carefully peeled it off and replaced it with this bow as nothing else was really working for me.  Hmmmmm... still not sure.  I might end up changing it out as well, but I'm going to live with it a little while to see if it grows on me.  {I'm still giggling... aren't you?!}

Isn't this image just one of the cutest?  It's from Stampavie and is called Mistletoe & Mice.  Awwwwwwww.  The sentiment is actually a silver cutout I received in my surprise prize from  I've also got a gold one just waiting for me to use it... and I will.  And I do know that mistletoe berries are white, but I just wanted some red/pink berries!

The challenges:
1.  Sketch Saturday - Grrrrreat sketch!


 2.  Copic Colour Challenge.  Love this color combo!

3.  Stampavie Challenge - Kittie's Bows.  Include a bow with your Stampavie image.  OK... OK... they didn't say a big HONKIN' bow!!  I read that into it!  haha

4.  Pals Paper Arts - Holiday Photo Inspiration Challenge.  Isn't it lovely?  Obviously I went with the mistletoe.

5.  Creative Card Crew - Christmas.  I always love this theme!!

6.  A Spoonful of Sugar - Non-traditional Christmas colors.  I am entering for my deep pink and dark brown.

7.  My Time to Craft Challenge - Winter Pals.

8.  The Pink Elephant Challenge - Your Favorite Christmas Color Combo.  I'm really getting into the pink/green combo!

9.  Cupcake Inspiration Challenge.  I hope my mistletoe will be an OK substitute for holly!  Aren't these cupcakes awesome?!?! 

Thanks for stopping in today.  For those who hopped by during the Bella Birthday Bash Hop last Saturday, thanks for all your wonderful comments!  This was the first 'HOP' I've been associated with besides being a 'hopper' and I'm hooked.  Soooooo fun!!  And finally, to those who took the extra time to leave a comment on Madeline's card, bless you all.  It will just MAKE her day the next time she comes and I show them to her!  You're all so great!!!

Have a lovely evening!
