Papertake Weekly - Anything goes!!!

Happy Holidays, friends!!! It's almost Christmas and I hope you have all your shopping done, and are enjoying your holiday with your friends and family! With it being Tuesday, that means it's time for a new challenge from Papertake Weekly. This week, we're being sponsored by the fabulous Katharina at Whiff of Joy! Since it's so close to Christmas,  the challenge this week is "anything goes". So link away my friends!!   For my creation today, I'm showing you a card I was asked to create for a friend at work using this adorable image, #492 Lion from Magnolia-licious.

He's stamped twice onto Xpress It Blending Card, and then fussy cut once to pop him up from the bottom image. He's colored with Copic markers.  The papers are some I've had for forever in a Debbie Mumm stack, and thought they were perfect for this adorable lion. The heart border was created using a Martha Stewart border punch and the ribbon is from Stamp and Create. I also colored and cut out another image of him to place on the inside of the card.

Please pop over to Papertake Weekly to see the rest of the awesome creations by the fabulously talented design team, and then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us. Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today. I wish you and yours the most blessed holiday season. May it be filled with love and happiness (and of course lots of crafty prezzies!), and I thank you for your continued friendship and support. You are what makes this entire process so fun and fulfilling! Please take care and have a a Very Merry Christmas!!! Sending you lots of love and hugs!!!!
