Christmas Crafts All Year Round February Reminder Post

Hello fellow bloggers!  Happy Thursday!  Such a sweet sound that is...Thursday!  For those of us that work Mon-Fri jobs, Thursday is a sweet day...almost as sweet as Friday!  Well, for me anyway; I guess I shouldn't speak for others!  Anyway, I am posting today to share what I made for the CCAYR reminder:

This image is from Sasayaki Glitter, and she is called Winter Peggy.  This card just might end up as the one I send to my friend Peggy for Christmas this year!  She prefers the color green though, so I don't know about that yet.  LOL!  The patterned paper is from the Classic Christmas 6x6 paper pad from Love Nicole.  The ribbon across the middle was saved from some kind of packaging.  Peggy was colored with alcohol markers, and the red corners were sponged with Candied Apple and Fired Brick Distress Oxide inks.  The sentiment comes from the Art Impressions set called Merriest.
