Happy Friday Everyone!! Wow!! The week has just flown by! I have made so many cards lately that this week I took a break and made just projects to change the monotony.  I hope you have enjoyed them.

Since today is Friday, it is time for another Wags n Whisker challenge.

This week our challenge is hosted by the fabulous Debs. Debs would like your creations to be:

Merry & Bright

So let's see your fabulous festive creations!!!
Remember that you must use a Wags 'n Whiskers stamps to be entered into the drawing for ONE FREE WAGS 'N WHISKERS STAMP OF YOUR CHOICE!!
Also if you would like to a guest for one of our challenges make sure to add "DT" after your name when you post your card for this week's challenge.

Here is my take on the challenge using the beautiful Nichola fairy from Wags n Whiskers.  I just love to color her!!  I created a Christmas mini pizza box.

The box top uses the sketch created by  Heidi for the Critter Sketch challenge!!

The image is colored with copics.  The ribbon is silk from May Arts.  The dp is from DCWV Music which I have had in my stash forever...
