Hello fellow bloggers and crafters, and Happy Friday!  We have really been having some wild weather here in PA, but it hasn't been as bad as it has been in the mid-western states.  Prayers go out to all those who are suffering the effects of these crazy storms. 

 Last night, the hubby and I had to take the long way home due to a power line being down on the road just up from our house.  Fire police wouldn't let us through, but we had to get home and let the poor dog out!  Thankfully, the long way around wasn't blocked at all, although there were some nice sized branch pieces lying about.  Well, anyway, how about looking at another Christmas card for my stash?

My card features this week's Bugaboo Freebie Friday image, Chef Pierre Platter.  I was wracking my brain on how I could use this guy, as I couldn't find any patterned paper that I thought was suitable.  The only food-related paper I have is Christmas-themed, so that's the direction I took.  And I can always use another Christmas card for this year, right?  I took the liberty of turning Chef Pierre to the right instead of the left, because I thought he would look strange facing away from the cookies.  He's colored in the usual way, using alcohol markers, and the sentiment comes from the Sweet Christmas stamp set from The Paper Company.  The delicious-looking patterned papers I chose come from the Sugar Plums 6x6 Recollections paper pad, and the card is 5.5" square.
