Thanks A Bunch! - A Christmas Lala, or is she?

Happy Saturday,
I like to buy stamps that I can use for more than one card/occasion but for a lot of the Holiday stamps it is very difficult. It's hard to make a Bunny with an egg anything but Easter and Santa really won't work for the 4th of July, hee hee!
But some of them can be used with a little "tweak" and I think this one will make you look at your stamps with different eyes.

Of course there are challenges too:

Artful Inkables - 3 Buttons, 2 Ribbons and a Circle
365 Cards Day 74 - Buttons and Bows
Creative Card Crew - Sketch
Totally Gorjuss - Round and Round
Creative Craft - Blue and Brown
Stampin Sisters in Christ - Blue, Brown and White
Colour Create - Khaki, Aqua, Brown and Cream
Paperplay - Brown and ...
Alphabet Challenge - C is For Chocolate colors
Aud's Sentiments - Thanks A Bunch
Lala Lands - Anything Goes (with a Lala Lands Stamp)
Papertake - Sparkly, Shiny and Special
Paper Makeup - 3 Flowers

Card Recipe:
Paper - K & Co Pads Margo and Bailey
Medium - Copic Markers
Image - Ornament Lala
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Rhinestones - Queen and Co
Sentiment - Printed in Harrington font
Die Cut - Spellbinders

I colored over the ornament on the image in the same color as her dress so that when I added the flowers you couldn't see it underneath, a great way to use a Holiday stamp for other occasions.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
