put a little green into your holidays...

Good morning! yep, I'm up early, trying to get some crafting space cleared from my messy desk. I succeeded, else I wouldn't be able to get to my laptop..lol.
I was watching some HGTV Christmas specials, that I dvr'd, and it dawned on me...I need to get a post going with some cards or I'll be sharing Christmas cards into 2013. {nah, I don't want to look at them then, either!}
I have a Mo Manning digi to show you, and I who knows why I picked this for the holidays...well, the color scheme.
Her name is 'Teen Fairy Pia' and she made me think of Tinkerbell, who always hangs on our tree. Maybe that's where the green holiday dress comes in? But...I have always been partial to red heads, so Tink was just the inspiration. 
I colored her with my prismacolor pencils and used a piece of paper that is from Memory Box. I am telling you, I seriously am not buying any new paper until my stash starts to run low...gonna be a long time. hehe I love Pia's flouncy ruffled skirt, so that got lots of glitter. The tiny 'joy' comes from a Memory Box set of acrylic stamps. This card is flat, sadly, I wanted to add a big, bright green bow...but I was mailing her out and we all know how that goes. 
In keeping with a green theme...check out this little elf...
Yes, she is set to arrive in soon in another mailbox, not too far from me. Oh, man....when I spied her at Archivers, I had to get her. If she isn't full of Christmas cheer, I don't know what is!
She is from Art Impressions and Archivers carries a nice assortment of these stamps now.
I ended up sending her twice...reminds me of the days when Jim and I worked BINGO. Those ladies not only had good luck charms all across their tables, they also decorated themselves. Some even thought bra's were optional at their age. I've decided, outside the home...they aren't. lol.
ok, be back soon, promise..I am still working on mixed media stuff and will share that and more cards. {gotta get a few more cards finished!!}
Here is Story, last night, laying in the hallway while I cleaned off my desk. enjoy your day...
