Merry Christmas!!

Hey there!! Wow... can't believe I haven't blogged all week!  I did make a few things, but there were just way too many things going on that were far more important than blogging!   But another week has passed and it is time for another Less is More challenge.  This week Chrissie and Mandi are challenging us to use just one word on our cards.  I wasn't going to make any more Christmas cards, but decided that I wanted to use my new T!m Holtz Vintage Noel die one more time before putting it away.  I also combined the LIM challenge with the current Paper Players challenge to use red, cream and gold.  



The card base is my favorite red of all time Stampin Up!'s Cherry Cobbler.  Love, love, love the deep, rich color of this red.  I diecut the "noel" from Cherry Cobbler, as well and then stamped it with Hero Arts Magical Background using Delicata Golden Glitz ink.  Unfortunately, the patterned doesn't show up too well.  I edged the cream mat with the Golden Glitz ink and after adhereing the diecut I added three gold glitter brads.  Super simple.

So... I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!  I hope you all have the most wonderful time with your family and friends and remember what the true meaning of Christmas is... a baby born in a manger!!

Its amazing how one die can transform a piece of card. This is stunning in red, with a touch of gold.
Happy Christmas and a Happy 2012.

Even as I read this, so FAR after the fact, I am STILL not ready to say goodbye to Christmas! I have a HUGE stack of stuff I'm not ready to put away, hoping upon hope that NOW I'll make a ton of cards so I can ACTUALLY send some Christmas cards NEXT year! {In the dictionary, under "under acheiver" there's a picture of ME!} That's right. But I SURE am moved by your lovely Christmas wishes - I SO hope that this year will be kinder to me in my time, and that I can connect with lovely you and your WONDERFUL creations, more regularly... I love you, SO! Sweet ROSIE GIRL! xoxoxo!
