Ooh la la

Ooh la la.....Paris anyone?  LOL This is my DT card for the next Clear It Out challenge which starts tomorrow.  We would love to see anything having to do with the "gift of Christmas"......however you interpret that statement.  It doesn't have to be a Christmas card.  Just something to do with a special gift or presents like I have on my card.  Use your imagination & be creative.  Now as for my card...........I'm having a PINK Christmas in Paris because my recipient is oh so "fabulous" and so very loved.  So my special gift is hidden inside the cute bag & those boxes are full of FABulous things I found while shopping in some cute Paris boutiques underneath the Eiffel Tower.  LOL  I can dream, can't I?  LOL  I even thought of hanging ornaments from the Eiffel Tower but resisted the temptation.  LOL  May have been a bit too much.........ya think?  :)

Our sponsor for this challenge is Melonheadz Illustrations.  The winner of our challenge will receive $15 to spend in Nikki's Etsy shop.  I've used the cute Paris digital set already colored for you.  Easy Peasy!  She also has a lot of cute freebies on her blog you might want to check out.

My birthday was on Saturday & I spent the day sick as a dog.  Yuck!  Not my favorite way to spend my birthday.  But my oldest granddaughter brought a movie & cake over today & we watched "Snow White & the Huntsman".  I really enjoyed it!  Even hubby watched some of it with us ('course we had to use the duct tape cuz he would not stop talking.....lol).  I have the sweetest family in the world.  I am so very blessed!

Well........back to my card.......I've used this sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  Sketches make it so much easier for me to design a card.  How about you?  This was a fun one........
