Hang in there

Hi everyone! Came across two items in my "to make into cards" area on my desk and they worked themselves into a pretty cool card - no pun intended.

I made the blue piece a while ago when dropping water into splats was all the rage. Well, they're more dots than splats anyway, so I'll link this up to the Addicted to CAS Dots challenge. 

The girl is a digi stamp from Mo Manning and colored with Copic's. I added a bit of sparkle in the snow falling and wind elements using the clear wink of Stella brush.

Sentiment is an old one from the former Angel Company that I stamped and cut out using a tag die from Paper Smooches. A little bit of red and white baker twin tied into a bow finishes it off.  I chose this sentiment as a message to all of us to "hang in there" during the stressful Holiday season. We don't have to do it all and remember to delegate to your family! They have to learn sometime! right? 
Thanks for stopping by!

Very cute card and the Mo Manning image is adorable. I like the layout of the card and adding the tag is a good idea.
