Merry and Bright

Hello friends and happy 8-days-til-Christmas to you!

I'm still without a car (since Halloween). My hubby hit a deer on
his way to work that day, and his car has been in the shop since then. He's
been using my car all this time. I only get out on the weekend.
I have gifts to send but I'm not stressing about getting
them out in time for Christmas. I'll send them when I'm able to, and
I'll be extending the holiday for the recipients! LOL!
Going to the post office on Saturday is not happening.
I went there last Saturday just to drop off my pile of cards and
the line to mail packages was practically out the door. Nope. No thanks.
I'll wait to go there on a weekday, not so crazy then.

Ok, enough about that. What I really came here for is to show
you a card I've made, and it happens to fit a few challenges. Bonus!

and the inside:

These adorable ornaments were colored with my Spectrum Noir markers,
then heavily hit with both diamond Stickles and a Wink of Stella pen.
I've tried to get a close up of all the shimmer and sparkle:

It's so hard to capture all the shimmer on the ornaments in a photo. 
These twinkle soooo much in real life!

And now I have a head start on my Christmas cards for next year!
That's all for now. I hope that you have a great day!
