It's a Mystery - revealed!

Oh me oh my, how did it get to be Monday already! ;) 
I hope your weekend was wonderful!

Today's post is a crazy, fun post!
There is a sweet and special group of gal pals on SCS
that rotates sending a "mystery" image to work with, 
create cards and post the results ... 
And that's today!
Our hostess this month is Sweet P, who sent us this sassy as all get up
image from Mashi's Muffins called "Mrs. Claus."
Va va va voom!!
I secretly colored mine to look like gorgeous Paola ...
Isn't she fab-u-lous!

I colored her with my prismas in a brighter palette rather than 
traditional Christmas because the image just screamed FUN
to me! I gave her a hot pink dress and glitz it with a teensy
bit of Wink of Stella, silver. 
I forgot to snap a picture of my cards before the flew to Canada
and recreated this from memory (and the slivers of paper left
in the Cabana to remind me what I used! ;)

Thanks for stopping by today and oh!
36 more days until CHRISTMAS!!! <3 span="">

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
