Joyous holiday

With the holiday season upon us, I must admit my favorite color is red.   Of course, a bit of green thrown in with it is good, too!  This image is one of the many, many digitals called "My Besties" being done by SherriBaldy.   You must admit she's adorably sweet and I've surrounded her in some gold stars, as well as a number of other embellishments -- a couple doilies, bows, flowers (the gingerbread man I used in the center is a button with the shank cut off the back), holly and ribbon - oops, guess I should have added some lace - well, maybe the doilies compensated for that lacey, girly look this time around - hahaha!
As always, I truly do thank each and every one of you who visit my blog, and an added "thanks" to those of you who take the time to leave me a comment/compliment, that makes me smile and continue on.
