Can you believe its Christmas already. Yes time got away from me. This is my last project for character cafe. They are not going to be having the challenges and new images in the coming year so there will be no need for a design team. . The challenge was for us to use our favorite image and make it sparkle.
I love this image. It's called "forever friends". Don't you love them. That is how I feel about all of you. I hope for you to have some forever  friends.
 The store for images will remain open. So if you find time go by and check it out. They have a sale going on right now. All images are only a dollar.

Hope you all have a very merry christmas.
