Black/White and a Touch of Red for Christmas

First I'd like to welcome my new followers Chris and Samantha.  So glad to have you and will be by to visit you both soon.

Christmas is only a little over a week away and I honestly have to say I am no way ready.  My cards aren't done, and as for shopping, oh my, I've only bought two presents except for my youngest son and his wife and that's because they were here and we went shopping together.......  How did I get so far behind this year?  I know this next week I have to get tons of stuff done so I may not be around too much till after Christmas.

Guess you all can tell I've fallen in love with the My Besties collection.  Here is img063.  I think she is so elegant.  I've colored her with Copics and added White Velvet Flock for the fur on her coat, muff, and hat.  The lamp post is a B130 die by Cheery Lynn and this new Joy die "Dance to the Music" has just recently been released. I've added Gunmetal Stickles to the note, isn't it gorgeous!  The sentiment is from LOTV and the snowflakes are an MS punch with Stardust Stickles added.  The beautiful square doily is from my friend and teammate Judy in the UK.  The DP is "Tis the Season by Cassandra Cooper".

Here is a quick pic of the inside of the card using part of the Dance to the Music die. EDITED TO ADD PICTURE
