Getting in the Christmas Spirit

Hi My Friends,
I didn't mean to leave you wondering where I've been, but things have been crazy busy around here. Washing machine is out of wack, Water leakage in the downstairs bathroom ceiling, Car still in the shop...I could go on. Something is really trying to steal my Joy from this holiday season. I know I have the power to say..."This is Not How the Story is going to End". I'm picking myself up, dusting off and will Go on knowing that things will get better and I'm going to walk right into my Blessings with a wide smile on my face. Mr/Mrs. Bah-Humbug...does not live here!
Here is a project I meant to upload on yesterday, but I just didn't get around to it. I still have quite a few cards to make (ok, a whole lot) and I'm going to have to come up with some easy mass producing ideas. I have to get out of my mind of trying to make each card unique. I don't have that kind of time, plus we still need to get our tree...yikes!
Here's this cute little birdie that I was so excited to make. I've been thinking about him for some time and finally got him out of my head. He's being such a helper, holding those little lights for the Christmas tree.
Isn't he the cutest. I found these little mini lights at Michael's by Jolee. You'll be seeing a lot more of these. The stamp is from MPS - Winter Punnies. I used some puffy paint on his cute santa hat and added some stickles for some bling. This card will be entered into the following challenges: Cardz TV - "Crafty Christmas" (create anything Christmas themed), More than Favors' Wacky Wednesday - "Christmas Theme", Fantabulous Cricut - "make a Gift, Gift Packaging or use a Gift on your project", Scrapbookaholic by Abby - "Dilo En Español Challenge #6" Christmas Theme.

I too have a problem with mass producing since I hate sending something out that I haven't fussed over for 3 hours, lol.
