Make a Wish this Christmas

Good morning friends!

What's your wish this Christmas?  I realize as I get older that my wishes for Christmas have nothing to do with things that you can buy in the store; although a few crafty items under the tree wouldn't hurt ;)

I have a card to share this morning using this adorable stamp called Dawn Hokey Pokey from Sweet Stamps that I recently won.  I just love her to bits, and although the detail was pretty tiny, she was not has hard to color as I thought she would be.

Precious-ness if you ask me!!  Of course, she is colored in Copics, and has some heated up Liquid Applique on the trim of her coat and the balls at the end of her stockings.  The papers are a mix of Bazzill cardstock and the new Authentique collection called Festive.  I used the last of my American Crafts red and white twine as well as an old ribbon from my stash.  The button came in a Paper Studio button pack from Hobby Lobby.  There are Liquid Pearls in white to mimic snow around her, Stickles in Yellow and Stardust for the star wand and snowflakes, as well as some Polar White Flower Soft for snow beneath her feet.  I then used my Fiskars punch to add a cute little open scallop border.   

Thanks for stopping by today and taking a peek!  Hope you have a wonderful day!
