Fa La La Carolers

Tis the season to be jolly!

Fa la la la la la la la la!


Sadly, I've been missing from the blogosphere for a few weeks. Life sure has been busy, and I've had a few setbacks, but I'm BAAAAACK! And, it's just in time to enter a couple fantastic contests!


DeNami Design has another fantastic Product Challenge. This time the theme is PUNCHES! Ohhhh, I loooooove using my punches! So, of course I have to enter! Plus, I recently saw that another blog has a Holiday Music Inspiration Challege going on as well, and it is sponsored by DeNami Design. Head on over to Wee Memories to check it out. It's a truly wonderful blog, and I'm now addicted to it!

So, here's my entry for both fantastic challenges:




This card makes me so happy because not only is it fun and festive, but I'm actually working as a Christmas caroler right now! It's wonderful! I get to wander around my picturesque little town, singing beloved Christmas carols, spreading joy and love throughout the season. Yup...it's fabulous. I can't complain. Plus, I colored the ladies in the stamp to look like my fellower carolers and me! Oh, and I used a fantastic new pen to write "Fa La La" in the circles. It's a Parallel Pen by Pilot. It is so versatile and easy to use, and my handwriting comes out looking fancy and flowing. I love it!


I hope you enjoy this card, and please check back again soon. I've been creating lots of cards which I need to post on this blog, plus the December Blog Hop for DeNami Design is THIS SUNDAY! For details on that, make sure to check DeNami's Blog. Hope to see you hopping!


Happy Holidays,


Amy
