Believe in Christmas Magic

     This is either the last Christmas card I made in 2015 or it'll be my first one for 2016.  :-D  Either way, I made it with a kit I had gotten with this fun House Mouse stamp.  The papers and the die cut sentiment were in the kit and I used ribbon from my stash to make the bow myself.   I did use my new Bow-It-All which my family got me for Christmas.  :-D  A fast card and a fast post.

     The image is colored with ProMarkers, cut with a QuicKutz die, and the edges are sponged with chalk.  The dark green CS (looks almost black in the photo) is embossed.  I used a sequin for the dot on the "i".

Whichever year it is for, it's a darling card! Love the fun bow and cheery "Believe." What a fun kit that must have been to get, too! I hope your Christmas was wonderful. Happy New Year, friend!

Oh wow this is just too cute! :) I adore that ribbon and your pretty word die too Connie!

Connie, you little mouse is darling! Perfect sentiment with the Santa Hat - it shows you never know where the spirit of Love will pop up, if only we believe! I hope your Christmas celebrations were extra special. I'm beginning to emerge from this last exacerbation, and hope to be visiting more regularly, soon!

Now for my other hat: Thanks for playing in the {Scrapy Land Challenge}! Hope to see your pretty projects again soon!
crafty hugs,

Such a cute creation. So delighted you blessed us with your project during our two-week Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. This week's Challenge is still ongoing and I hope you’ll join us again. Leaving you with God’s Word in 2 Corinthians 5:17-18 which says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:” Have an awesome New Year!

Another beautiful card Connie. I love the image and your background looks gorgeous. Unfortunately this is your 4th entry and our limit for the Mega Christmas challenge is 3 entries (just for this one challenge). Sadly this entry will not qualify for the prizes. However I hope you come back on 5th Jan 2016 for our new challenge and to find out if you are one of our lucky winners. Hugs, Denise x

What a cute image! I love your choice of papers. I'm not sure I can pass the "I am not a robot" test each time, LOL.
