Just a little late for Christmas...

Hello there.  Hope everyone had a nice Christmas or holiday.  I'm here with a holiday card, a little late for Christmas, but oh well, I think it makes for a nice thank you card or something.  I figure our Christmas tree is still up, I'm still in a holiday mood (unlike my husband who wanted to recycle the tree as soon as the last present was opened!).  Anyhow, I played along with The Play Date Cafe Challenge #112.
 And the Deconstructed Sketch #32.
And here's my red card...
 I used Yuki from Sister Stamps (thanks Eva!).  She's so cute, the hair on these images always reminds me of my daughter.  Anyhow, I used Papertrey Ink cardstock, stamped a text background and clear embossed it.  Then I was stuck for the longest time because I was looking for my Bow-Easy!  I swear I had put it in my ribbon drawer in this rolling cart under my desk.  So I thought my daughter had lost it because she likes to play with (and unravel!) all my ribbon spools.  So I made my son look for it, and told him to pull out the rolling cart in case it fell behind onto the floor.  And while he was conscientiously looking through all the drawers in the cart, I saw it sitting right there on top of the cart, oops!

After I stuck all the paper and ribbon down I thought everything looked a little too red, but oh well, too late, I stuck the ribbon down too well with double sided tape.  I might have to try this again with a different colored bow or patterned paper or something.

Well, I guess I will wish everyone a Happy New Year already.  I have to go check our sparkler stash now in case we need some more for tomorrow night.  Bye!

Cheryl, love your Christmas card! Not too much red. I think it's balanced out by the green & gold in your design. With the ribbon up there, at first I thought it was a snowglobe! Wishing you & yours a Happy & Blessed 2012!

Great card! Love the stamp and the way you've colored her hair. If you have more late Christmas cards to show, you can always play along with us at Christmas Card Challenges - we have challenges all year. The only real rule is to make a new Christmas or Winter-themed card! http://christmascardchallenges.blogspot.com
