Stress of the Holidays

     I'm almost finished buying Christmas this year. I'm trying to be more frugal this year with my husbands job change and less finances coming in right now. I've always been one that thought they were finished and then would buy just a little more, but not this year, I'm sticking to my budget. I need to finish stocking stuffers, my daughter and a couple little things for  others and then i will be DONE! I love that word, it makes the Holidays so much better and relaxing.
    I made a card last night using 2 of my Bugaboo digital stamps that i won from the Fussy and Fancy challenge blog. They are called "Ava Christmas Sitter and Fur Tree Bench". I just love how this turned out.  I used liquid applique, glitter and stickles for all of the shimmer. I colored the images with my Copic markers.  The die is from Stampin'up and the paper is from DCWV. Take a look and tell me what you think.
