It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas?

Depends on where you're from, I guess. I've got ribs on the grill, it's 100 degrees out, but my friend, Eugenie, a Saffie from Capetown, tells me that her childhood Christmas usually included a cookout on the beach! So what the heck? Grillin' out and chillin' with some Christmas crafting in make a good combo., anytime, anyplace!

So, this one's for:
Fluter by Wednesday's - Make a Christmas card using a butterfly, fairy, or angel.
Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog - Choose your own Christmas Sentiment
Sketch for You to Try - It seems I'm late, though Mr. Linky says I still have a week. :( 

Ugh. The shiny paper photographs horribly.

 I happened to have this cute little ice fairy and Christmas sentiment from The Pink Cat Studio already in my digi stamp collection. I love this Heidi Grace flocked and shiny paper! While I was in Texas last week, my mom sent me through her fabric scraps, and I found some floaty crinoline-like stuff, which I ruffled and held in place by stitching down a piece of silver ribbon. Here's the detail shot of that:

Well, sort of. It just isn't showing up well. The snowflakes are Jolee's, and the blue ribbon was something in my stash. The blue CS is Bazzill run through the Cuttlebug in a snowflake embossing folder. It's on top of some white CS punched with my MS doily punch.

I sooooo need to save up for a new camera. This thing's great for life, awful for photographing cards and layouts. Any suggestions?

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Please come back soon.
Have a great Saturday, whichever end of the planet is yours. :)
