Monday good to me!

Hi everyone, and a woohoo to this beautiful Monday! I don't understand where Saturday and Sunday went. Oh, that's right - it's the holidays which, of course, means that from now until Dec. 23rd, the days will woosh past us! ;)
Today is a Sunshine & Giggle kind of day so I wanted to share my favorite image from Janice's new releases:

At least she is ready for Christmas! I've used this image once before but wanted to create a card for a volunteer who organizes our Children's Church every Sunday.
For my card I decided to paper piece. I love doing this technique! It brings so much dimension to images and does such wonderful realistic patterns that I could never do freehand. I was going for a classic Holiday festive feel, so black and white immediately came to mind. My own daughters love to dress up for church, it was hilarious this weekend when one wore her bright red (definitely not Christmas red) Valentine's day dress and the other wore a purple Easter one that she just grew into. haha! But they sure felt like princesses... ;)
Here is a closer look at this beautiful image:

I love her ringlets, and her expression is so sweet! You can find the image HERE at the store, all of which have been digitized for your convenience.
Thank you for coming by, I wish you a wonderful day! I will be back later with a new contest that you won't want to miss out on. ;) Until soon!
*Love and Aloha*
