Merry Christmas!

Hi there!

It's Monday, the day before Christmas Eve, and I'm heading to work soon. I'll be there again tomorrow, then looking forward to a wonderful Christmas Eve evening at my sister's house - can't wait!

I'm sharing a holiday ATC with you today, which I created for the Secret Santa Exchange we had over at the Hero Arts Flickr group. 




I used Shari's Tree No. 1 from Hero Arts. The tree is paper pieced - tough to tell in the photo. I don't know why, but I decided to cut out each piece of the tree before adhering it together on the base. Looks so cool in real life! 

The background was created using another stamp from Hero Arts called Tiny Flakes. I white embossed it and used the resist technique with Distress Inks. I had to add some Yellow Stickles to the star for a bit of sparkle. :)

Okay, I gotta run - it's gonna be a fun two days at work! It's one of the few times during the year when they let us dress up in nicer clothes (as opposed to our uniforms.) Everyone is in a happy mood and we also have live music in the store! It's three older gentleman who play a violin, keyboard and chello. They play Christmas songs and the customers just love it - so do I! 

I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday with friends and family! ♥♥♥
