MFT: PI girl Christmas card & ramblings

Hi everyone! How's all the last minute Christmas shopping comin' along? LOL! Me... I finally hit the mall today, but didn't really find much.... although I did place an order at for some super cool clear plastic bags for cards & projects. I found out that Clear Bags is located near me, so it was as easy as placing an order and driving on by the warehouse to pick it up... LOVE that!!! And the customer service ROCKED. Check them out if you are on the prowl for some good quality clear bags. Anyhow... so what were the bags for exactly? Well, I got this really SUPER cool favor idea from one of my son's classmate's mom (Hi Jen!) and I can't wait to try it out. I purchased the 1" x 8" clear flap seal bags to create them. Once I do create them, I'll share them with you all... you'll want to give it a try too, trust me... they are SO FUN and cute! (Suspense, I know. LOL!)

But this post is about the super fun and cute Christmas card I created using My Favorite Thing's Pure Innocence stamp set called "Love you with all my heart." OMG, she is just too adorable!! I paper pieced her dress with some Anna Griffin Calisto Christmas paper and popped an iamroses poinsettia over the heart to change up the theme to Christmas. I think it worked out okay... she looks like she's hugging the poinsettia hehe! I also used my Copic markers to color her in. This super fun card is going to a very special lady for Christmas! :-)
