I'll Be Home for Christmas

Totally Papercrafts Challenge #80 - Christmas in August




It's Friday... FINALLY! And that means it's time for another fun challenge at Totally Papercrafts. Crafty Carol chose the theme this week and we are celebrating Christmas in August!!





I have been dying to color this cutie so I had to think of a way to put her on a Christmas card. I was picturing her in a train station sitting on her luggage waiting to board the train to her home town. I have always thought I was born in the wrong era. I love the 1920's -1940's. This image definitely reminds me of that era.




This week the Totally Papercrafts Challenge is sponsored by Karen's Doodles. Karen has graciously donated 3 digital images to the winner of the challenge.






I enjoyed checking out all the entries this past week and looking forward to seeing your beautiful creations for this weeks challenge.
Happy Crafting Y'all!

Love that new Spellbinder and label diecut. Matches great with the edging on your ribbon. Now I am singing Dolly Parton's "I'll Be Home With Bell's On". I'm blaming you when the Kahuna yells!
