La-La Land Crafts has released their new Christmas stamps - a total of 12 - we were all trying to figure it out at the blog hop (heehee). These new stamps are the cutest, most just have to get over there and check them out - you will LOVE them! La-La Land Challenge #8 is Winter or anything Christmas.
So I grabbed my La-La stamp and colored her traditional holiday style - isn't she just too cute for words? I followed a sketch from a past challenge and added my own two cents and came up with this. Now, La-La had her hands open as if she is welcoming, holding something - something needed to show something, right? So, she is holding garland - to put on one of the trees! How cute is that? The snowflakes are plastic little cheapies from Wal-mart (wink). I added glam to them so they wouldn't look so gaudy. The ribbon was $1 at the big boys craft store and the sentiment was a rub-on. Not bad eh?
