"Almost Christmas"

Does that title scare you? Not me, I am awaiting a few things to come in the mail and I will be all done with my shopping. Everything is wrapped except what I am waiting for! My title is also our latest challenge at "ABC CHALLENGES". It should put each of us in the mood for some Christmas cheer! I love this beautiful image from "The Paper Shelter" our lovely sponsors! Such a sweet little Christmas Fairy! I used a DP that has been in my scrap box for several years for the background of my card. I believe it and the bottom piece came from the same pad, but it has been far too long for me to remember! The cute little hearts are a die cut from Memory Box. The paper lace is a Tim Holtz die cut. I added some half pearls for some pop of color. The candy canes are buttons and the sentiment is from LOTV. A little Spica pen and white gel pen finished off this fun card. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song:  Trisha Yearwood
The city's decorated up for Christmas
All the stores are open late tonight
People hurry through the frozen streets
I take a walk...
Every child has a thousand wishes
Every window has a thousand lights
Every soul has a need for peace
I take a walk...
There's a star that still outshines the night
You can find it if you close your eyes
And see the light
Take a walk through Bethlehem
Come and kneel before the lamb
Good news for every man
Walk through Bethlehem
