Christmas card Using Art by Miran Lovely Lucia and CTMH City Sidewalks Paper

Hello friends!  Are you ready for Christmas?  Can you believe its just 2-3 full days (depends on where you live LOL) left before Christmas?  I decided to create another Christmas card to use for next year. LOL!  I didn't create enough Christmas cards for 2016; so I need to try to create more of them for 2017.   I finally got my Christmas tree decorated on Monday of this week.  LOL!  That is the latest I have ever done and finished sending my Christmas cards on Tuesday.  I am usually early on everything; but it snuck up on me this year.

It is time for another fabulous Art by Miran Challenge 74 - Anything Goes.  I decided to use one of my many Christmas digis, Art by Miran Lovely Lucia.  I thought she was very pretty and looked the part for a Christmas card.  Her hair didn't turn out the way I wanted it to; but sometimes you just have to go with what turns up.  LOL!  I didn't have time to color another and my fingers just weren't working too well.
