Santa Says ...

     A new challenge starts today over on the Facebook page of Sheepski Designs and the theme is "Anything Goes."   It runs from October 20 through November 19.  I used one of the newer Sheepski images called "Mindy" and I shouldn't have to explain to any of you why I chose this one!  :-D

     This cat definitely lives at my house and I'm intimately familiar with that facial expression when I say a loud and absolute "No" about things hanging temptingly from the Christmas tree.  Obviously, Mindy knows if she so much as touches that shiny, golden ball, she'll be on Santa's Naughty List forever!  lol

     In order to have a CAS design, the image was printed directly onto the card front and then colored with my ProMarkers.  The sparkly ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and I hate to admit that it's been hiding in my ribbon stash for nearly 2 years!  In my defense, I had put it into my Christmas ribbon stash and the bin got pushed to the back of the cabinet.

     I added the sentiment to the ribbon and turned my attention to embellishment.  I decided on just a single bow but a large one.  The bow I picked was originally white but I 'dyed' it with a green ProMarker.  Fast and simple; a real 'git 'er done' card and now I have one more in the Christmas stash.
