Ooooo, three, count 'em, THREE posts in one month!


LOL, this just tickles me pink! Seriously, my robe is pink...I digress. I am posting today to enter this card into the challenge over at the Jingle Belles blog. Their 15th challenge is a recipe:


1- as white as a ghost


2- a present


3- a bow or a knot


4- a touch of traditional Christmas colors


All of these elements added together= "the ghost of Christmas present"...aren't Steph and Lauren just too clever? Teehee!!


So, my card is pretty simple...I was inspired by Steph's card. My base is white and the embossed layer is white; I went around the edge with a green Sharpie to provide some contrast. The image is a Studio G rubber stamp that I'm sure I picked up in the dollar bin at Michael's. I colored with a red Sharpie and a green ZIG pen. Oval and Scalloped Oval Nesties were used to die cut the image and the green mat, and I attached it with foam tape. That's about it...publishing post now....
