Merry Christmas to You

 Good morning sweet friends.  It's Remembrance Day here in Canada so I have the day off.  We had a fabulous assembly at work yesterday honouring the men and women who have and still are serving in the military.  It was so lovely to see a sea of poppies in the gym; each student was wearing one over his/her heart.  Today's card is for Mercy's Tuesday sketch.  I didn't really realize what I was getting into choosing this colourful paper.  I love colour, but this is almost too much for even me!! LOL  I will try to KISS (keep it simple, silly!) next time LOL ;)  I had another card in my head, but thought I should get back on the program and make a Christmas card.  I will keep that card on file in the old noggin' and maybe it will come out this weekend.  Have a wonderful day :)

stamps: pti 2010 holiday tags
ink: su real red
paper: su blue bliss, kiwi kiss, pti plum, cream, sugar plum dp
accessories: cuttlebug efs, scallop circle and long nestabilities, circle punch, pti limitless layers die, pti ribbon, button, rustic twine, gemstones

WOW, ya'll have the day off? My kids had school! :(
Pretty Christmas card! I really need to get started on my Christmas cards that I will be sending out. I try to keep those pretty flat, but Man that's hard! I like ribbon too much! :)

You did a lovely job with it, Maureen. Those colors are fabulous, but there sure is a lot on that paper! Awesome bits of bling =)

Wait a get a day off!?!?! We get one minute off at 11am but then I'm in work mode for the rest of the day!
OK onto the card - I have this paper and I really should KISS more too (tee hee!) as I've no idea how to use it!!! But at least I have a starting point now *wink* Oooh and if you could refrain from using those dies that'd be super helpful too LOL!
