Toby has a Headache...





Today's Ramblings: Good morning! It's a chilly one out there this morning. The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting colder. So hard to believe that it is the 2nd week of August already! August is Christmas month for me. This is when I get into high gear with Christmas card making. I've also got some good gift ideas too!

I have noticed that maybe other bloggers are thinking the same way I do. There has been a boost in Christmas cards the past month.

With that said, I have a Christmas card to share with you all today :)

Today's DT Challenge: The new theme at StampFairy Challenge is a sketch!

I am almost hesitant to share this card, it is not my favorite and when things aren't working out I add stuff to the card until I can't fit anything else. I kept telling myself to stop and walk away, but that little voice in my head was happily singing Christmas songs instead LOL

I used Toby Everyday Angel {found here}:

Poor Toby - I think he is getting a headache from all this stuff on his card ;)

You are so hard on yourself Deanne. I love this card, and the pretty soft colours. Toby is adorable and really beautifully coloured. Remember 'less is more' if you get the urge to keep adding, but I really do think this one is perfect as it is. Adorable. And I smiled when I saw you'd kept going as you were singing Christmas songs to yourself !!! LOL
