bring on the merry!



...and I'm back with another holiday card.

cardstock:  pti white/black, bazzill neon  stamps:  reverse confetti/bring on the merry  ink:  zing white, wplus9 white  other:  paper smooches poinsettia die, mme washi, yns gold nugget gum drop 

So, I didn't craft at all yesterday {gasp!}.  I played with Katie, we went to a pretty fun crafty garage sale.  By the time I made it back home, I literally ate lunch and napped...whew, garage sales take a lot out of a gal {wink!}.  

So, today is dedicated to all things crafty and I'm bloggin' live.

I still adore the chalkboard technique!  That Paper Smooches Poinsettia die has been in my stash for a long time and this is the first time I used it.  Isn't it fun in the Bazzill neon pink?  The center of the poinsettia is a Your Next Stamp Gold Nugget Gum Drop that I colored with my black copic:)

I'm failing miserably in the postal friendly holiday cards...sigh.

I was inspired by





and yes,



remember that the JB gals are donating $4 to the Susan G Komen Foundation for each new Pink Christmas card that links up to their current challenge...come on designers, let's flood the Paper Crafting community with PINK!
