Sparkle & Shine

Well, I finally have a pile going for my Christmas cards. And, what I love about my cards this year is the fact that I get to combine stamps from different companies in 1 card. Love it when the images works together.
Let's take a look at the card first.

Now, the wreath is from Wplus9 Woodland Wreaths set. I simply draw a circle and then layered the holly and the pine leaves to create the wreath. The cute bear is from Purple Onion Designs, colored and fussy cut. The hat & scarf are from There She Goes Stamp Pugalicious set. And the sentiment is from Mama Elephant.
This is the basic design and while I am not a fan of doing a repeated design over and over (because I tend to get bored real quick), right now time is of the essence, so all my Christmas cards will basically have wreath this year.
I do change the critters for variation. I'll post all the variation, soon. Right now, I am just having fun coloring and cutting all the critter images. I'll have puppy, bunny, deer, etc. Yes... cuteness overload. :)
I give myself till the 15th to finish my stash! How's your stash going? Or yours already mailed? Heck.. I haven't even done Christmas shopping. Is there more than 24 hours in a day???

Super sweet card! Love how you combined stamps from different sets and companies. I totally cheated this year and ordered photo cards. Easy peasy and done!
