It's a Beaver Christmas

     OK, ok, I know the whole "Christmas in July" thing is over now that it's August but since our challenge theme at QKR Stampede this week is "Anything Goes," and since I adore this image, it just seemed a good day to add one more Christmas card to my stash.  I used both an image (Digi 9802 "Fresh Cut Tree") and a sentiment (Digi 8717 "Merry Christmas") from QKR Stampede on this card.


     I knew I wanted an absolutely CAS card this time so I printed both the sentiment and the image onto what would become the card front, then cut the card to size (5.5 x 5.5), and colored it with my ProMarkers.  That was it -- no embellishment of any kind; no ribbon, no bows, no washi tape, no brads or bling.  And you know what?  I love it!  I think this is the first time I've done a single layer with absolutely NO embellishment of any kind.

     Not posting every single day is kind of fun.  :-D  Other than pre-scheduled DT cards, I'll see you when I'm back and into my old routine.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
