25 Days of Christmas: Day 9

Hi Everyone!

Well here we are at day number 9. I have a funny story to go along with this card. When I started making the cards and playing along with Kristina's HCS this year, I tried to make them all as the series was going along, so that I didn't have all of them to make at the end. (Although, I still actually have 1 left to make) That plan worked very well except for Day 9! LOL!! I just had a hard time with this card, as cute as Kristina's "Dude" card was, it was the most difficult for me to recreate. I think perhaps it was because of the handwriting on it. Let's face it, we're all jealous of how beautiful Kristina's handwriting is! Anyhow, I delayed and waited and procrastinated to make this card for as long as I could! I almost just skipped this day; but I decided that I needed to stay true to my challenge of completing all of the cards. This is what I finally came up with. The letter stickers are from American Crafts and I tried to keep the handwriting to a minimum! Lol!! I also cheated a bit and used some snowflake pattern paper for the background instead of stamping them. Lots of pattern paper on this card and that's about it, so the supply list is fairly short for this card. In the end, I think it turned out pretty darned cute! Thanks for looking, have a fantastic day and I'll be back tomorrow!
