I Adore Nutcrackers

This has been a rough 2 weeks. Being sick is no fun at all and with pneumonia, it really wipes ya out. But there is light at the end of the tunnel, and today is the first day that I feel somewhat normal. WAHOOOOOO!!!!!

So I thought I'd share a Nikki Sivils project that I created.

This first one is a little Christmas card I created using the wonderfully cheery Nikki Sivils collection Happy Holly-Days. I collect nutcrackers and this paper quickly wiggled its way into my heart. The colors are so rich and the images are just perfect.

I added a little fabric paint on the boot trim and this sweet nutcrackers hair, as well as some stickles to jingle it up a bit. Pretty Pretty. The dimension on the card was created using a combination of Helmar Zapdots and Liquid Scrap Dots. (both are available at Really Reasonable Ribbon)

That's all for today. I hope that you are all enjoying your day so far. I'll be back tomorrow with another of my Tattered Angels DT submission projects for ya.
