Bypassing Fall

Hi all my crafty friends!! It's been months since I've been creating and blogging.  Had a fabulous summer with the kiddies and have been trying to get back into the swing of school and activities. 

I was so excited to FINALLY be able to sit down and craft for a few hours and when the Mojo strikes, you just gotta roll with it, right?  Right!  So, there were a few challenge blogs that jump started my Mojo block and I decided to get a jump on my Christmas cards!

You'll have to forgive me for the pic - I seemed to have lost my cam and had to resort to using my cell phone, lol....Isn't she just precious, tho?  She's from Bugaboo and her name is Ava Christmas- Mistletoe Fairy, which you can find in the Bugaboo store by clicking here.

I used some papers from the Authentique Festive collection, DCWV The Linen Closet Collection and Wassau textured cardstock.  I cut her using some Nestibilities dies and then embossed her on my cuttlebug.  All the papers, including little Miss Ava, are distressed in Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I used a Fiskars punch and some adorable polka dot washi tape behind her.  Now, I ran out of red pearls, so instead of buying some more, I just used my R29 Copic and colored up some white ones I had in my stash.  After coloring up the holly berries, I added some Glossy Accents to them.

Thanks for stopping by today and taking a peek!!    Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
