Holly Jolly!

Being a "crafty" person (as in, one who crafts) can be confusing in a seasonal way... I am baking pumpkin pie, watching Halloween cartoons, but making Christmas cards. Many of you know this feeling, where your "real" life is pretty current with the rest of society, but in your head (and in your studio) you are a season or two ahead! I love Halloween, and I feel relief that it is almost here since I have been planning and crafting it since summer! If you are an artisan and sell your pretties, your "seasonal disorder" puts you in a crazy calendar, and a panic sets in when you still have cool projects you want to make, but the actual holiday is looming sooo close... I am also doing my final preparations for the Halloween party hosted by A Fanciful Twist. It is this weekend, so make sure you check it out! I am one of many participants, and it should be a fun, magical day!

So, my house smells nice like pumpkin pie. But after making this card, I feel like getting out some Christmas music...

This card, using the sketch for Mojo Monday's challenge, incorporate the theme of Christmas for the Creative Inspirations challenge. I love these papers! Polkadots make me super happy! I made the inside

Papers: Making Memories, Bo Bunny, DCwV
Image: Peachy Keen stamps
Embellishments: brads, ribbons
colored pencils, copic markers, zig markers, ranger distress ink
