ACCCKKKK!!!

So SERIOUSLY...I am way too behind to ever even think about being caught up, anyone else?? Since I DESPERATELY need to get my Christmas cards made, I have been using all the challenges I participate in(okay, only the last two, but ALL of them til I am done, hehehe) to help me to mass produce my cards. Today's card is part of the Featured Stamper challenge over on SCS. Today's FS is Anna(Annascreations), and I chose this card to case. I made a few changes: moved the sentiment and ribbon, add brads and layers and embossing, changed the images and colors. My main image is from the Christmas Cardinal set and was stamped with Pallette Hybrid Noir ink. I then colored it in with my re-inkers, blender pen, and SU markers. I then layered it with Riding Hood Red, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip. The paper is from the Ski Slope DSP by SU and the felt ribbon is from the Alpine Originals. I embossed the Chocolate Chip layer with my Argyle folder and the circles were cut out with my circle nestabilities. The sentiment is from the SU hostess level one set Best Yet. I punched it out with my middle sized oval punch. I sponged the edges of the image and the oval to soften them up a bit. Well, that is it for me now...more tomorrow!!! For now, I leave you with a new picture of the 4kids in this world that make my life worth living!!

    Love your babies . . . little treasures.

    Hugs, Mary
