A very yummy Christmas Card

Hello dear bloggers,
I hope you've had a most terrific Halloween weekend!!
I had the pleasure of recieving an amazing package
from a blogger buddy recently
with an AMAZING Halloween card
and a couple of hAnglar & stAnglar stamps,
it was the best pick-me-up a gal could ask for!!
Thank you dear!!
So, of course, my brain has been at work
thinking of these stamps above all others,
so here we are, what turned out to be a Christmas card,
soooo not the plan, but hey,
the end result is a good one.

I used the most gorgeous sketch over at
Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.
I've been a no-show over there lately (hangs head),
no worries, I have been a no-show everywhere.
And along the same notion, I'll also be entering this at
Simon Says Challenges who'd like to see
All That Sparkles.
At A Spoon Full of Sugar
the theme is Kitchen/Cooking,
I think these cuties work just perfectly for that!!

The papers are Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses, smoochie smooch, lol.
I have used Martha Stewart glitter around my image,
also, I've glazed my dishware,
the poinsettia is Prima, pearls are K & Co.,
and you can see the MS doiley punch came out to play,
pins, beads and ribbon are from my stash.

Woot!! Sideview!! I'm just excited to get some natural light!!
I retook the pictures and am reposting, hooray!!

Well, I hope everyone is doing great,
have a wonderful crafty week!!

Absolutely gorgeous. I love the Hanglar stamps too and I too was lucky enough to get some by default when a prize I won leaked everywhere and couldn't be sent so I got the images instead. It is a perfect xmas card.
