bearing gifts/receiving gifts

This cutie patootie either comes bearing gifts or this is her pile of gifts she captured from under the tree.
Actually her name is Betsy Bluebell from Penny Black stamps that I ordered through  Simon Says Stamp Blog. In celebration of their STAMPtember blog hop, they are challenging the use of a stamp purchased from their shop.
This is probably a birthday stamp but with her red and green striped sweater, I guess we could use it for Christmas. I colored the image with colored pencils and star gel pens. Random green and red gems add to the Christmas feel. The sentiment is from Precious Remembrance Shop on a banner from Spellbinders. I used the Big Shot with the magnetic platform from SU for the banner. That is the best product to come along since the Big Shot itself. You really, really need to get your hands on one.
The polka dot DPs are from a 6x6 pack from BoBunny.
Wouldn't this be a cute card for your daughter or granddaughter?


  1. Very cute, Donna, love those little added hearts! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge!

  2. I have this stamp, too, Donna, and hadn't thought of using it for Christmas. Great idea! TFS
