Christmas children

Closing down shop here until after Christmas, but I wanted to leave you with my best wishes for a beautiful Christmas and for all your wishes to come true!  Aren't we all children at this time of year?

Merry Christmas!

supplies: red, lime, and ivory parchment cardstock, design papers from The Paper Studio (Christmas sheet Music), Graphic45 (Christmas Post Collection from 2010), vintage image, Hero Arts CL343 Holiday Sayings, Adirondack Cranberry and old paper distress inks, red baker's twine, red heart button,  snowflake punch, red metallic dot


How many of you remember wearing these snow suits as a child?!  

It just so happens that the Play Date Cafe Challenge presented me with the perfect colors to highlight this sweet vintage image I found, probably at The Graphics Fairy.
