May Your Christmas Be Merry

If you popped by earlier I mentioned I would be back with Day 5 and Day 7 of Tim's Tags, as you can see, I'm not.  I took a break today, did some Christmas Shopping, stopped at Michales, Hobby Lobby and Archivers, of course I had to pick up a few things, which I'll be sharing soon....The Technique Tim shared in Tag 6 was screaming out to be put to use on this years Christmas cards, so I combined it with this weeks PDCC#58 (use Red and White), along with Tuesday Throwdown #28 (CAS).  I struggle with CAS, thus the added Bling and my second version.  I'm apologizing in advance for the poor lighting - I caved last week and ordered a Light Box, which was supposed to arrive today but alas, it did not....


Take Two

Again, poor lighting, if that Light Box shows up tomorrow, I'll reshoot this one. Here I've sponged the edges and added a piece of Black Glittered Ribbon (thanks Sue!).  Off to catch up on Tim's Tags!

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost (Sentiment), Heartfelt Creations (Snowflake Swirl)
Ink - Ranger Distress Ink Brick Red, Black Archival
Card Stock - White, Red, Black
Other - Big Shot, Black Ribbon, Glue Dots, Gems, Texture Fades Embossing Folder, Ink Blending Tool, Craft Mat

Love the embossed snowman with the scarf! Let me know what you think of your light box, mine gives me fits at times due to my incompetent photographing skills ;-)
