I want a present this big!

Hello, it's Mary J here and I'm here with my last card for Whimsie Doodles for 2013!  And I can't wait to be back in 2014 with more Doodlelicious Diva makes!  So, here is my card using Big Gift...

I matched her up with Echo Park Very Merry papers, CC Cutters Christmas Accessories and finished off with some Stampin' Up ribbon.  Right, I am off now.  There won't be any more posts from me until 2014.

Have a wonderful festive season and thanks to all of my blog friends for their support and sweet comments over the year!
Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
