I should be cleaning...

... but instead I decided to post a little sumpin' sumpin' :) How about another Christmas card, today? I'm still WAY behind in my Paper Wings Christmas Card Club... but, that's me... nothing like waiting until the last minute. Kind of like me waiting until today to throw together another Mother's Day card... I'll try to remember to share that next time I post.

I tried to create a card that would be quick to reproduce, but still have a little oomph :) I LOVE this Vintage Christmas set... it's so retro {in a good way :) }... and I used a sentiment from Holiday Cheer (love the font) and popped it up on foam tape.

I stamped the ornaments in Toile Pink & Ballet Blue Palette inks, and topped them off with a little Crystal Stickles (oooooo... glittery...). I used Lilly Anna, Reece, and White UltraSmooth cardstocks, and my FAVORITE ribbon: Amberley Grace's fatty ocean blue satin (yummy!).

I'm hoping to rock-n-roll through a dozen or so of these this month to try & catch up! But I've also got Seminar trades to work on (can't wait for late June!!), my Winger DT assignment, my monthly classes (next week!!!), and I've got one more Art Share to complete. Not to mention all of the other mundane to-do's we all have... FUN TIMES!

Well...

What do you think?
