So, if you are a regular visitor, you may be wondering if I have someone guest posting for me?  Nope, it's just that this beautiful Christmas set, particularly this bird and the gift called for a dolled up card.  It's not my standard CAS fare, but it was just what I had in mind!  My layout isn't elaborate.  I just used a lot more layers and techniques than I normally do!
 
You'll want to skip off to Sue's blog to see how she finished this week.  Thanks for stopping by!
