Feeling Like Christmas

I survived the drive home from my parents on Monday; but I can honestly say I won't be driving on a holiday again (if I can help it!!) I left early (but not crazy early) to try and get ahead of traffic; the biggest problem are the 2 mountain passes I go through (one is through the Rockies & it's gorgeous!!) because trucks & trailers lose power & slow me down!! Between all the travellers and the animals along & on the hwy (black bear, deer several times & mountain goats) it made for an exhausting day SO yesterday I didn't accomplish anything but groceries!!

ANYWAYS...This week Da Bella (Stamping Bella) is sponsoring the CPS- card sketch How cool is that?!?! First I loved the sketch so it was easy to do today & it helped me get my groove back on. Since it tried to snow when I was driving home Monday around Banff & it's trying to snow today here it was easy to do a Christmas card.

I chose Wreathabella for this layout, haven't inked her up for awhile and anytime I get to use a bella I'm happy. I stamped her with Memento ink and coloured her with copics. I added stickles for the berries and the fringe on her boots and hat

The DS paper is from Scenic Route(Garland). The sentiment is also from Stamping Bella and I added some 5mm ruby red bonbons

Don't forget about Bellariffic Fridays - this weeks it's this amazing Sketch from Nicky (she's the best isn't she?!) Just make sure you have your card emailed to Em by 5pm est Thursday to be entered in the draw for bella bucks

Thanks for stopping by & tomorrow I will be rockin'....
