Happy Tuesday! I guess the Christmas card crunch is officially on now that Thanksgiving is over! I've got several made already, but need many more! For today's card I've used this little cutie called Twinkling Angel from Whimsy and Stars Studio.

I've used this week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch 181 for the layout.
