Bah! Humbug! Challenge #2 --- Using New or Nearly New Stash

For the second challenge at Bah! Humbug! the theme is to use new or nearly new stash to make a Christmas card.  I have several images already colored for Christmas, but didn't get onto cards.  So, I pulled out this Whiff of Joy image.  Actually it is two images in one.  The "Sled Packed with Gifts" and "Freezing Willow" images were new for this winter/Christmas season.  I stamped Willow, then masked her so I could stamp the sled for her to sit on. 

The image is colored with Copics on PaperTrey white card stock, inked with Memento Tuxedo Black.  The papers are actually from my 2008 Christmas stash, but I don't remember the collection.  Scraps are scraps!  The foam glitter snowflakes were from the kids crafts area at Michael's and the glittery icicle "grass" is from the floral department at Michael's. 

I have to say that Bah! Humbug! is probably going to be my best incentive for getting a head start on Christmas cards for 2010.  Thanks to Ann, Irene, and Max for such a great challenge idea!

Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate your visits and comments and look forward to visiting your blog, too.
