Bah! Humbug! Challenge --- Charms

Can you believe Christmas is less than 4 months away?  More to the point, Thanksgiving is less than 3 months away --- that's about the time that many folks start sending out Christmas cards and decorating for the festivities of the season.  Soooo, time to get really serious about reaching my goal of 100 Christmas cards.

Bah! Humbug! Challenge has been stoking those holiday fires all year long and this week the theme is charms.  I love using charms on cards, but when I started this card my drawer of charms has everything BUT holiday bling.  I did find these pretty little silver snowflake charms, though, and found just the spot on the card.  As luck would have it, the snowflake on the dp just happened to be directly over the Eskimo-kissing cuties, so I hung the charm there, sort of like mistletoe. 

The Eskimo couple are from Mo Manning Digital Pencil and colored with Copics. Aren't they just adorable? They are sitting on a background of shimmery cardstock embossed with swirls in the Cuttlebug.  The white beaded flowers are from the Michaels bridal department, and the rhinestone swirls and ribbon are from my stash.  I haven't decided on a sentiment yet.... depends on who I send this too.

They look so snuggly in their furry parkas!

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit Bah! Humbug! if you haven't already.  The DT's projects are gorgeous!  Very inspiring!
