Holiday Shopper


Good morning and welcome, I have my second Papertake Weekly card to share with you today.
This week our theme is
The First Chrismas (Card of the Papertake Weekly year)

I know it is not the first Chrismas card that you have seen from me and it won't be the last but it is the first time that I am using this image this year. This is the sweet Jenny Bear from LOTV and she is out doing all of her holiday shopping (getting it out of the way nice and early, smart girl).I have chosen to colour her up in nice rich colours to pair her up with my 12 Days of Christmas Papers from MME and she has been accented with a generous dose of stickles and glitter for sparkle.

To take things one step further I have also made this into an easel card, adding a pocket to tuck a gift card behind the sentiment. I already have the perfect Christmas Gifts that I will be able to tuck inside. Now I just need to make one more like this.


I want to thank you for stopping by. Be sure to pop over to the Papertake Weekly blog and see the gorgeous creations  from the rest of the team. I hope that you will join us and I look forward to seeing your gorgeous Christmas creations.

This card will be entered into the following challenges :
