Well, this is officially my very first Christmas card for 2010! And I'm very happy with how it turned out.

This one is made from a beautiful sketch by Arlana Patten over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. I absolutely adore her sketches. They are so much fun to work with.  Here is my card:
 And the inside:

The image I used for this card is from Elizabeth O. Dulemba. She is an amazing illustrator of children's books, but she allows the download and use of her images for digi stamps. Very generous of her, huh? Make sure to check out her blog to see more of her work.

I also used a kit that was given away as freebie mini-kits on a Blog Hop sponsored by Jessica Sprague. It's called "Christmas Treasures". I hope you were able to pick it up while it lasted, because these ladies did an amazing job!

Here is the layered template. I hope you enjoy using it and get lots of Christmas cards made! Only 27 days left! ;)

Darling digital card! I haven't gotten into that but it looks fabulous. I love the rich papers you used..the red and green is awesome! Thanks so much for joining us again at SSW! I notice that you are from Forest Grove. Our family lived in Portland and Canby for 19 years. So I still think of myself as an Oregonian!
