Excuse me while I whip this out...

As soon as I got my crafty little fingers on this new freebie by Therese Travis at Too Many Ideas, I knew I'd be making a pull-tab card. I used the template I made for a similar Halloween card (photo on CDAC) which I'd sent to lots of family. Oh how I love PaperFaces Designs! I never get bored with them. This kind of card is a favorite of mine, because it feeds equally my need for the interactive and my desire to use my pretty gel pens. I plugged in some photos from last Christmas (the tree, the family, Walt destroying his gift from Mrs. Claus) and added a ribbon and bow to make it feel "gifty". I wanted some text on it and "Merry" seemed appropriate, especially with that emotive M. Although it's difficult to see in these photos, the white elements are "glittered" with Polar White Flowersoft, my new go-to white.

Can't wait to work with this image again. Doesn't it just scream
patterned paper?
