No Peeking!

Happy Friday bloggers!  I know I'm happy it's Friday, as I have off work, although that will only be for another week yet.  Week after next, I will be returning to work at the job I was laid off from in May.  I will be a temporary employee again, BUT I will be getting paid more per hour than I am now, AND it's day shift.  That's most important to me and my family, that we have what I like to call, a "normal" life.  Working a full-time, second shift job is NOT for me!
Returning to our regularly scheduled programming now, how about a Christmas card?
I was in the mood to use a sketch again, so I decided to participate in 52 {Christmas}Card Throwdown's, Pick a Previous sketch challenge.  I didn't have to go back very far to find one...I used their most recent,  #52, from July:
Of course, the first thing I thought of when seeing the triangular element was "tree."  BUT, I have a few colored Bugaboo images sitting on my desk, and this one (Christmas Mouse Present) fit perfectly.  :)
12 Months of Christmas Link Up #20:  ATG or optional Christmas Confectionery theme
CHNC #292:  ATG Christmas
Simon Says Monday:  Celebrate!
Hiding in my Craft Room #261:  Christmas in July theme
Broken Fairy #7:  ATG with a twist, Embossing (heat or dry) White sentiment is heat embossed
Thanks for stopping by to have a look today...May God bless you! 

ETA:  This card was chosen for an Honorable Mention at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown!  WOOHOO!  Thanks!  :)
