Day 3 - Card #3

Man I am on a roll!.  Maybe I'll be done with my Christmas cards before the month starts.  That would be amazing.  Now I just have to remember to mail them.  Every year I make all these Christmas cards and somehow the month gets away from me and before I know it, it's to late to mail them.  I already bought my stamps so this year I know I'm going to do it.

This card is for 3 challenges that I love.  The colors I got from the ColourQ Challenge #165.  I got so excited when I saw their inspiration photo.  Look at these fun colors. 

Isn't that the cutes apron you have ever seen.  It was found on etsy so if your interested get on over there.   

The idea of the card came from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #172.  This is a great sketch , the ideas were limitless with those four little squares.

As you will see I did take liberties on the sentiment.

Those are the dies I used for the card.  Look at how old those are!  Yes they are the original Cuttlebug dies that were with it when it was bought.  As soon as I heard about this coming out I started saving for it and had to be one of the first to get it.   

I choose a new paper I just bought for the background from Carta Bella - Merry & Bright collection.  The paper is called Merry Ornaments.  I used the reverse side for the Christmas Ball.  The pink and red floss is from Bazzill. I think I have almost every color they have.  It's the greatest most versatile string for any project.

Sorry about such a crappy dark picture but I wanted to show you a close up of the sentiment.  I made a little tag and tied it to the bow.

One last challenge for this card is this weeks Simon Says - Anything goes!
Maybe I'll take a day off from my cards and work on my projects.  I have about three different ones going all at the same time.  When will I ever learn????
