Okay, One MORE!!

Okay, okay. I said the LAST Christmas card might be the last one from me this year.. but just lemme squeeze this last one in before I forget! :) One more last minute card order from a gorgeous Irish lady. She really appreciates my work and that means a LOT to me, plus she LOVES Some Odd Girl just as much as me.. maybe even more!

So here is a card, requested by her.. to actually be given to her by her boyfriend. Hilarious! :) She wanted me to use Mistletoe Kaylee, so here she is, coloured just like the recepient. She wanted vintage, but different. So distressing counts as vintage, right? No traditional Christmas colours either. Makes the card stand out more, right?

I have created the sentiment in Word and printed it out in a pink tone to match the papers. I die cut the sentiment using a curved rectangles nestie and distressed and doodled the edges. I stamped the ickle stamp from the new Lovey Tobie stamp set in Frayed Burlap DI, and Real Red and Pretty in Pink SU! ink. Yum.

Here is the sneak I posted over on my FB page. :) Love her bright blue eyes. Too cute. Hope I wrote that combo down somewhere! LOL!! Next year I really wanna work on my SOG noses, try and get the shading along the darkest side of the nose and in the eye socket right. I need some tips from Kristy and Melissa!

Here is a shot of the inside of the card, stamped and distressed to match the outside. :) Simples.

Okay, so maybe that is all from me for this year. For real this time. :) Hope I haven't bored you too much.
