Naughty or Nice?

     OK, I know these are supposed to be innocent milk maids, as in "8 Maids a'Milking," but come on -- their "We're Partying!" smiles tell me that's more likely to be vodka than milk in their glasses!   Hence, the sentiment "It's all fun and games till Santa checks the naughty list!"  Both the image and the sentiment are from Beccy's Place and I think they work perfectly for the "N" day of the alphabet challenges.  I leave it totally up to you to decide if that stands for Naughty or Nice.

     I colored with a combination of ProMarkers and Copics (tending toward the Neon reds), then cut the image with a square die from Spellbinders.  I had to adjust the die and cut twice to make it a rectangle because I wanted it slightly more rectangle than square to accommodate the shape of the image.

     I mounted that onto black CS for the mat.   I found the black and red dp in my stash of scraps and put it on top of some burgundy CS I had chosen for the card front.  The kraft ribbon with the snowflakes seemed to work with the color of the cow.  I made a fan-fold bow and wrapped it with Narrow linen ribbon.

     Well, I'm later getting this posted than normal but my day got away from me from the very moment I got out of bed this morning.  Maybe tomorrow will be less frantic.  :-D  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

I really enjoyed reading your blurb NC, it gave me quite a chuckle! You're right about the milk maids looking as though they're in party mode, they do seem to be enjoying themselves a little too much. You did an awesome job on the colouring, I really like the fabulous bright red dresses they're all wearing. The background is wonderful too, I love the beautiful poinsettia paper.
P.S. I'm going for naughty!
