Holiday Cards at WhoopsiDaisy

The challenge this week at WhoopsiDaisy is to make Holiday Cards.  I decided to use this sweet image of two little ones fast asleep in front of the fireplace.  I can't help but wondering if they are standing guard to get a glimpse of Santa or if he has come and gone and they are tuckered out from the activities and excitement of the day.

I decided to make this card in traditional colours and while I didn't put a sentiment on the outside, there is a Christmas greeting on the inside.  I have made so many cards for the holidays lately but I still need to take an inventory so I know just how many more I have to do.  It is hard to believe how soon Christmas will be upon  us.

Make sure you check out the work of the other designers and enter your card for a chance to win some digis from WhoopsiDaisy.  You don't have to use an image from WhoopsiDaisy to enter the challenge but do check out the fabulous images in the store because they are so sweet and I bet you find some that you will just have to have.
