Sleigh Bells Ring??!

Yup, I'm in Christmas mode.  Well, not really ~ but I've got a few cards done for Christmas already.  Now I need to get my rear in gear and work on some Halloween.  I still have to finish those.

I just cant believe that Christmas is really close at hand.  I've got to start thinking about shopping.  Oh, I'm always thinking about shopping Ü but I need to stop thinking and just do it.  Where the heck did the year go anyway??

I try to steer clear of the traditional red and green Christmas colors - they are over used.  But I thought that this one came together quite well.

The base card is Riding Hood Red and I layered it with some dark green card stock I've had and white that I ran thru the cuttlebug with the snowflakes folder.  I stamped the image from Sleigh Bells Ring and colored it in with my watercolor crayons and some markers here and there.  I took my designer label punch and punched out a piece of Riding Hood Red card stock and then my 1 3/8" circle punch and punched a piece of the dark green card stock.  I layered those together and then added the sentiment that I stamped in Handsome Hunter over the top of it.  On the inside I layered some of the same papers and stamped Merry Christmas from Seasons Greetings in Handsome Hunter.  Once I added a few stickles to the front of the card I was complete.

So wadda ya think?  Christmas-y?  I think so.  Even though the scene is a little busy when you use the watercolors to color images I think that it goes fast.  This would be an easy card to make a bunch of.

Hubby's working today so I'm just blog hopping and puppy watching.  I will work on some stuff and be back either tomorrow or Monday.  Have a great weekend!
