The Holidays Are Comin'!

Hi there!  Hope you are all doing well- it's almost Friday- Woohoo!

It really hit me this week how quickly the holidays are creeping up on us- I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week- I still have a lot of shopping left to do!

I finally had the time to participate in the challenge over at Hero Arts this week.  Shari's hosting the challenge to use "trimmings" and my floor is scattered with pieces of scrap paper and pieces of ribbon that are too small to wrap or tie a bow with (just asked my DH!) so this week's challenge is perfect to use all those bits!

My fab sister let me borrow her super adorable Holiday Dolls set - I couldn't help but to ink them up right away! I'm not usually a big fan of using non-traditional colors for holiday cards, but she's just too cute to color in the standard red & green!
