Don't forget Santa's Cookies!

Good Morning Everyone, Happy Thursday!!! I can't believe my last card I made was about 3 weeks ago. I wanted to say thanks for all the kindness of my blogging buddies checking on me, I have such great friends and followers...I just heart you all!!!! I did however have some personal issues going on that I was unable to create, but I am ready and happy to get back to stamping :)

For my creation today I used this absolutely ADORABLE new image Sharing is Best by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD!!! I just had to make her a holiday creation, it just reminds me of me when I was little and trying to eat up all the cookies we were making for of Santa on Christmas Eve.....Hope you enjoy my creation!!

Isn't she just SOOO adorable, you just have to check out this whole set images if you haven't, these images are just sooo SWEET!!! The Odds & Ends Sampler is NOW AVAILABLE!!!
