Howdy blogging friends, and Happy Friday!  A lot of you know what that means when it comes to Bugaboo stamps, right?  FREEBIE FRIDAY!  WOOT, WOOT!  Here is this week's cutie made into a card:

This image is called Sunbonnet TreeSuch a sweet little image to color, although I had difficulty coloring up the tree!  I was trying so hard to give it some shading, but it looked awful, so I gave up and colored it all in a dark shade of green.  I colored the image using my alcohol markers, and added Stickles in Christmas Red on the ornaments and berries; Yellow to the star; and Waterfall (which is my favorite!) to the tiny heart on her dress.  I used Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle dies to cut and mat the image, which I then popped up on foam tape.  The patterned paper is from a K and Company 12x 12 pad called Winter Wonderland.  I loved that pad so much, I bought two of them many years ago!  The card base is 5.25 wide by 5.5 high.
