A February Christmas Card

Well, my 'little cold' has worsened to an all out severe cold. Because we have to find our own replacement at work when were sick, I just went to work rather than go through the hassle of calling people. Although I didn't think my 'cold' showed at all, but a lot of the customers noticed and felt bad for me. Boo-hoo. Pity party here. I have to work today too, and tomorrow, and Monday...I will drug myself up as best as I can so my cold doesn't show.

Anyway, onto today's card. I used the 2Sketches4You #44 for my card. This is my very first time I played one of their challenges. I'm starting on my February Christmas Cards for SCS Christmas Card Challenge. I know its a tad early, but I don't want the end of the month to come and then I realize I didn't do a single Xmas card that month and I suddenly have to make 5 cards all at once.

I used the JustRite 'Old Fashioned' Xmas Set to make my card, and JoAnn 'Peppermint Forest' paper. I put Liquid Applique on the sock to make it puffy. Here is a close-up:
And here is a full view of the card: The Designer Paper has glitter on the red stripes. Its so pretty in real life.

Have a great day! Amy
