We Wish you a Merry Christmas

Well, here we are at the second week of December, and it doesn't seem to feel like Christmas season yet, at least not for us here in Arizona.  Our weather is still in the 70's as of today, however, come this week, we are finally going to hit 60's.  I think this explains why it is so difficult to get into Christmas card making when it's sunny and hot outside....I'm trying!

For today's card, I used this really cute stamp I purchased at my local scrapbooking store, it's by Whipper Snapper Designs - Maddie.  I stamped it on X-press it paper by Copic using Memento Ink-Tuxedo Black, then colored it using Copics.  I used the same coloring scheme as on the front of the stamp, since initially the cute image along with the colors was why I purchased the stamp.  I used Bazzill paper for my base (which I rarely use, since to me, it feels very flimsy, I normally use Papertrey ink for my card base), since I didn't have this color of card stock from Papertrey Ink.  The pattern paper I used is from a 6" x 6" My Minds Eye Merry Paper pad I purchased from Michaels.

I used Let it snowflake die-namics from My Favorite Things and layered one on top of the other using a dimensional, then added a pink embellishment that I purchased from Hobby Lobby (Crystal Stickers 5mm LT. Pink).  The sentiment I used is from SP and Company Bold Holiday Sentiments, which by the way, I have to mention how much I love these stamps, not only because they are high quality photopolymer stamps, but also because of the variety of sentiments that you get in one set, not to mention the two different fonts used.

This was a quick card to assemble, I think the thing that took me the longest was the coloring, which by the way I enjoy very much!
