Conie Fong November Design Team Project - Christmas Leilani

I like to compare the holiday season with the way a child listens to a favorite story. 
The pleasure is in the familiar way the story begins, the anticipation of familiar turns it takes,
 the familiar moments of suspense and the familiar climax and ending.  
Fred Rogers

Hey there from Nannyland, 

Choosing from among the many gorgeous holiday images in Conie Fongs Etsy shop has made my Design Team projects a joy to create.  This fabulous image is called Christmas Leilani and you can find her in Conie's shop here.

I printed her out twice on Xpressit blending paper and colored her with Copic markers.  The poinsettias are fussy cut and popped up with pop dots over the base image for dimension.  I had created and saved the card base for an earlier project in Cricut Design Space and I loved that my image fit so perfectly on this fun design.  Glitter gold and red cardstocks, and a touch of metallic gold make this card festive and elegant.  The blue snowy paper is digi paper printed on my computer.

Yes, I'm aware we haven't even celebrated Thanksgiving yet and I will be posting an autumn card next week.  I have vowed not to put up any Christmas decorations until the weekend after Thanksgiving, and so far, so good.  But I might sneak in a Hallmark movie or two before then.  

Thanks for visiting Nannyland.
I'll just be here blissfully creating until your next visit.
