Friday Mashup #24

Good morning all and Merry Christmas Eve.  As you're reading this, I'm probably traveling to my sister's.  This is the big day for me and my family as we've always celebrated on Christmas Eve.  It's a great night and we all try to not miss it!  Now, that means Christmas is pretty quiet, but that's OK too!

I was the Friday Mashup winner for their challenge #22, making me a Mashup Maven!!  : )  That also meant I could join along with their challenge as a Guest Designer.  I jumped at the chance as I love doing GD gigs!!  They are just plain fun.  
 The challenge this week is a color challenge using marina mist, real red and old olive.  That's a great combo, don't you think??  Anyway... I enjoyed using those colors together.

I made up this little sweetie for today.  Doesn't he look to snug in that little stocking?!?!?!?  I purchased him last year, but didn't have time to work him into a card.  Well... I made it juse in time this year!  YAY!!!  As you can see, I went with a really simple layout.  I've been doing that more and more lately.  Especially during Christmas season when I'm so darned busy!!

I chose BG's jovial collection for my background as it has all three of the colors I was needing.  It really does have some olive included, but you sure can't see much of it, can you?  hahaha!  The sentiment is computer-generated.  I added pearls to the top and bottom, then gave it some sparkle with a bit of glitter.

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response - over 500 so far !

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year.
