Woooo Hoooo! I adore my christmas card, I love MME too! I think I am starting an unhealthy addiction to their 6x6 paper pads.  Can you tell on the inside I accidently cut off the corner of my "Happy holidays" thinking it was the paper for the out side corners.  This card was to be an easel card however I messed up, again, cutting paper and had to improvise. I added the paper tabs at the top which explains why the brads show through on the back. They were "oh shoot" at work!

Had a lot of troubles with this card but all in all I think it came out very well. Used up the odd reddish, brownish and what not cheese cloth I had left over and found this image I colored ages ago. Go figure, I feel it works great with the card colors. I wish I had centered her now that things are all said and done, but oooo well.  Its really hot here so I am heading off to go get some more water and clean my craft space. All B’s (Bling, blocks, bell, bow…Beautiful? LOL)----------- Christmas IN July----------
