Bring on the pressies

Bring on the pressies

I must tell you, I have this guilty pleasure is to get as many presents as possible. I know that's greedy of me, but it's really the joy of opening up whatever it is inside. Don't get me wrong, I do give my fair share as well. I like the wrapping portion of gift giving... don't ask, I just do.

Anyway, this is a very cool card, I have to say. Aside of the fact that it's festive, I actually combined 2 sets of Xmas stamps and put this together. Long time SUers and fans would recognize the girl, who used to pull a small sleigh, that may carry a puppy, a tree, or something. But, newer SUers like myself would remember the present sleigh from a recent catalog. At any rate, I just matched the 2 up next to each other so it looks like she's pulling a big sleigh with tons of presents in it. No Stamp-a-mah-jig was used. Look ma, no hands!

I also did the liquid applique to do her fluff on her dress and hat, as well as snow. I kinda went overboard there, but trust me, it's just so fun, I can't help it!

Well, it's hot and rainy out, so hopefully this will cheer things up a bit... hey, I can dream, can't I?
