My Friend Karen

My friend Karen has a beautiful blog and she is a beautiful stamper.  Karen had a brilliant idea a couple of years ago to make one Christmas card per week throughout the year so when December rolled around she wasn't stressed out trying to make all her cards in a week :).  I have long admired her idea, but until recently didn't have the time to commit to this.  I know we're three months into 2011 but here's a little secret.....I have 15 Christmas cards already made for this year so I actually think I'm ahead - LOL.

This little fellow is super cute, or should I say super 'cool'?!  He comes in a set called "Cool Yule" from MFT that has 4 other images and 3 sentiments which are perfect for the set.  I coloured him with copics, paper pieced his toque and scarf and the rest of it came together really quickly.  Just a bit of sparkly patterned paper (sorry can't remember the name as it was just a leftover scrap), a ghost snowflake, a bonbon and of course, glitter for his toque trim.  If my math is correct, this makes Christmas Card #16 for me but who's competing.....I mean counting?! :)  Stay tuned for more of my Christmas cards.

Cheerio.....Leslie

OMG Leslie this card is super cute and I am also amazed you have already started Christmas Cards for this year. You asked the name of the song on my video and it's Demi Lovato called Gift of a Friend.
