Merry and Bright

Happy Monday! The beginning of another week. My weeks seem to fly by and already we are almost to March. What happened to January and February? Apparently your life moves faster the older you get. LOL!
Another Christmas card today.

Still cleaning off my desk of images that I've printed and stamped and haven't used. This is from Bugaboo Stamps called Christmas Rocking Horse. I colored him with a variety of markers. He is die cut with MFT Stitched Circles.It's backed with a hardly visible Spellbinder's scalloped circle in green card stock. The sentiment is from Little Paper Shop (no longer in business). The background design paper is actually the sides of a tissue box. I love the colors and thought it would make nice "designer paper." I added some Burgundy Stickles for the berries on the saddle and Diamond Stickles for the harness, boxes and ornament. To finish off I added a few sequins.
I am entering these challenges:

I have to move along now. My daughter, SIL and the twins will be here soon. They are coming for the afternoon and supper. So that means I need to get busy. Hope you have a wonderful start to your week and I hope you find some crafty time.
