Hello Everyone!!!  I don't know about you, but my kids are already counting down to Christmas!!! EEEEK!!!  Am I at all prepared??  Noooooooooo I'm not!!  So time to get cracking on some quick and easy Christmas cards!

Today's card starts with a base of Riding Hood Red layered with Baked Brown Sugar (I LOVE this colour and am going to be devastated when you can't get it anymore!).  Then I've embossed a piece of white card using Spellbinders Dainty Dots MBossibilities and cut it into three strips.  Over the first strip I've attached a piece of red ribbon.  Next I've stamped this cool NOEL sentiment from Power Poppy's Joyful Arrangements set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (R43, R46, R59, G40, G82, G85, G99, Y21, Y26, Y28, E23, E43, E44, E51, E53, W0, W1, 0).  It's been trimmed and matted with Riding Hood Red.  To finish I've added a red bow topped with a yellow button tied with gold cord and added a few clear rhinestones to the top corner.

Oh, Kathy, you really brought this image to life, I just love your playful, colorful treatment of the letters in NOEL. The crisp white with embossed dots sets such a pretty, snowy background scene. It's just LOVELY and such a delight to my eyes today!! Thank you. :) ~m
