merry little christmas

Can you believe there's only about 86 days until Christmas? I guess I'll have to start my shopping soon. Hard to believe. It is my favorite time of the year though. And with Christmas comes lots of Christmas cards. I think I have more Christmas stamps than anything. You can never have enough I say. As you can see, I chose some of those for this week's Splitcoast sketch challenge.

I really liked this sketch. I may have to do another card using it. I just picked a couple of the Studio G stamps from Michael's and colored the images with my Copics. Of course glitter goes hand and hand with Christmas cards. I chose some of BG's Figgy Pudding and a piece of Fruitcake. I kept looking at the houndstooth paper and thought it needed something. Should I back it with a piece of red cardstock? Should I trim it with the scalloped scissors? Then I thought sewing the edge would work, but I didn't feel like dragging out my machine so I pulled out some stamps I have not used in a long while that resemble ribbon and stamped the edge and embossed it with red glitter powder. Next I added the ribbon and charm then finished the loads of laundry I've been doing all day. Thanks for stopping by!
