Luka's Pressie

Happy Holly-Day Friday!

What are your plans this weekend?  I am working this weekend :(
If you're looking for a good challenge to create something fabulous, come join us this week over at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge - Anything Goes!  How easy is that?  And there are prizes to be won of course. 

Today I am using the card sketch from It Seems a Little Sketchy.  Love that name!

I have used the Very cute Christmas Present Luka and colored him up with my Copic Markers.  In hind site, I guess I should have made that shirt something other than green, lol.  I used two different set of greens for the shirt and the pressie but they still kinda blended in together.  lol.  I love this fabulous paper, BoBunny Mistletoe collection.  Those tree's remind me of whoville, lol. 

I am going to have a couple little ones here for Christmas and I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!  I love watching them open their presents and the excitement and the squeals are so fun.  So there will be paper flying and boxes opening and parts to put together and games to be played and I won't be able to walk through the living room when they are done, lol.  And that will only take a few minutes, lol. 

Do you ever get that day after Christmas let down?  When all the planning and all the excitement and anticipation are over?  You are just kind of left humming.  I experienced this for years with my older two, but it was all over with with my third.  His birthday is the day after Christmas!  And yes, we party!!!  So down comes the Christmas stuff from the dining area and kitchen and up goes a birthday banner and out comes the balloons.   And no, there is not let down on the 27th, lol, just plain ol' fashion exhaustion! lol. 

So that is what I am preparing for and getting ready for this month.  Double Celebrations, Double excitement, Double gift buying, Double planning, lol.  

Hope you have a great weekend and will join us over at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge and also, take a look at the NEW stuff in the store, and don't forget to comment on the Sunday inspiration post for a chance to win a prize!!!

Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments!

Bummer you have to work this weekend. I've been busting my hump the past few days preparing for a Christmas luncheon I'm hosting tomorrow. There will be lots of goodies to eat, and lots of animated conversation (these ladies are talkers, lol).

Luka reminds me of my son when he was little. Cute card!

That's one way to avoid Christmas let down...have a birthday right after. OMG I'm exhausted just thinking about it.
Love how you've colored up this sweet image and I think the greens next to each other look great.
