Season's Greetings...

The beautiful part about Christmas season is that there are infinite traditions and infinite ways to celebrate.  For some, this is the most hallowed of holidays.  For others, it is simply the season to embrace all that is good about humanity.  And let's face it...for many it's about SHOPPING!  

It is my most favorite holiday.  I love the food, the family, the music, the togetherness...  As a mother, Christmas has taken on a whole 'nother meaning.  My husband and I look forward to shopping for our son together and then surprising him on the big day!  That's my inspiration for today's card.  I'm submitting this design for the Paper Smooches Sparks Anything Goes Challenge.

I'm all kinds of in love with Tim Holtz's watercolor paper.  I just love the texture.

I used dimensional tape and glossy accents make the shop windows and lantern pop.

The sentiment is from Freckled Fawn.  I thought it was so appropriate.

Inspiration:  Small town USA, downtown.  You know, Main Street where the lamp posts are decorated and the attached shops are lovely and charming.

Markers - Copic (lots of 'em)
Sentiment stamp - Freckled Fawn
