A Merry Little Christmas Washi Style

Happy Saturday!!

So last night I go out for the evening (thanks Wanda - it ws a riot!!) ...  I left Craig in charge of the kids.  Mmm Hmm ... perhaps that was a mistake.  This is what they got up to ...
Ya.  Awesome.  These are the children who are afraid of using a butter knife ... yet they will play with real saws, hammers and spikes.  On the bright side Rebecca IS wearing safety goggles.  *Sigh* ... you wonder why I rarely go out for the evening??!!??  My mom will have a stroke when she sees these pictures! *lol*

Before I headed out and left the children in the hands of their sick and twisted father I managed to hit the craft room for a few hours and came up with two Christmas cards.  I love this one ... although I think I will do it again ... maybe with an embossed background and the strips of Washi Tape a little longer.  Even so, I love the clean look of this:
Fun!  I used the Season of Style Washi Tape for the background, the Merry Little Christmas set from the holiday mini, the Merry Mini Punch Pack punches, the Chalk Talk Framelits and some rhinestones and dimensionals.  For the sentiment I stamped it in Old Olive ink, took my blender pen and REMOVED the Olive Ink from the word "Merry" and then used my Cherry Cobbler marker to ink it in Cherry.  I also used my finger dauber to ink the edges of the punched out piece.  (Oh, the star is in Crumb Cake).  Quick, clea and easy.  Love it!
