Easel Card Using Deedee's Digis "Raggedy Sisters", Cricut Artiste and Cricut Art Philosphy Cartridges

Hello friends.  It has been perfect weather in Southern CA; but I know it is getting cold in some areas; and snow already in others.  I hope everyone is doing well and starting to get ready for Christmas.  Can you believe it is only 3 weeks from today?  Wow!  I am so not ready.  I didn't create Christmas cards each month like I normally do; so that really put me behind schedule.  We went to MO to visit family for Thanksgiving and that made me even later.  I have had trouble getting started since vacation.  I am sure all of you know what you feel like when you get home from vacation; you need another vacation from your vacation.  

I just heard that Deedee's Digi Designs is closing her shop at the end of December; which makes me sad.  Her creations are fabulous!  The good news is that she has all of her fabulous digi sets on sale for 75% off until closing; so get over there and start shopping.  Click here for the link.   Most are .75 or less.  I bought 11 sets and only paid $7.32 for all of them.  That is a steal!  She has colored digis; as well as black and white; so you have a choice to color or use her precolored digis; all in the same set.  I love using the precolored ones; since I think they are perfect already!  How can you beat perfection!  

Visit Deedees Digis for 75% off.  Store closing Dec. 31, 2015.

We have 3 Fabulous Sponsors for Challenge 23 -  Sami Stamps, Michele R Designs & Deedee's Digis.  Visit Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Blog to see prizes.

I chose this adorable Precolored Deedee's Digi's Raggedy Sisters.  Aren't they just precious? Only .63 cents right now for the set.  I gave this card to my sister Becky; while we were staying at her house before Thanksgiving.  I planned on creating one for my other sister, Alice; but haven't gotten around to it yet.  I don't seem to have my creating Mojo back yet; after 10 days of vacation.
