No Embellies for Christmas? yikes! sounds like Halloween!

Coffee of the Day - Maple Pecan

We have a new challenge starting up today over at ABC Christmas Challenges, and believe you me, I was fussing. bet I'm on Santa's naughty list after the temper tantrum I threw, in perfect toddler style! not really, well, maybe on the INSIDE! ha! our new challenge is 'N for NO Embellishments'!!!!! can you believe it? and I actually made a card! granted, it's not very good, and yes, I'm so very tempted to add all kinds of stuff to it, but I'll be good and leave it as it.....

you should pop by the blog, though, and see the absolutely GORGEOUS cards made by the rest of the team! We are sponsored by Stamp Fairy, so you have a chance to win some cutey images if you play along!

My card uses the Chubby Christmas Angel 3, papers from the retired (sad face....) Basic Grey Figgy collection, senti from Create with TLC, and a few accents of shimmerz paint. The rest was done with either my white gel pen or a black sharpie... pretty easy peasy.
