Mo's Three Punch Challenge

See, I am working hard on my Christmas cards! I also decided to play along with the challenge on Mo's Challenge Blog. This week the challenge was to use three punches on your project and I used two different Martha Stewart punches and my Fiskars scallop punch. For some reason the red piece that I used the scallop punch on is blending in with the paper behind it, it stands out more ITK. The papers are from Basic Gray, the image from Mo's Digital Pencil and it was colored with Copic markers. I also added some Glossy Accents to the snow globe that she is holding.

I had a crazy afternoon yesterday. I was planning to run to the library and a couple of other errands and as soon as I shut the front door, I realized that in my haste, I grabbed the wrong key chain and I had no house key or car keys. I did have my phone so I could call my husband. He was kind enough to leave work and come and unlock the house. He was also kind enough not to laugh at me too much too!! I haven't done that in a long, long time. Fortunately it was a nice day so I just sat outside enjoying the fall day.

This is a beautiful card, the colors are so rich and perfect for the holidays. What a tough day to be locked out of everything, at least hubby didn't laugh too much. Hey you never know when DH's will do something silly.

Oh Gina, this is spectacular. Your coloring is inspirational. Love everything about this gorgeous creation!
Don't feel bad about locking yourself out of the house, yesterday I "lost" the checkbook. Found it later in my purse.... after looking there about a zillion times.

Your card is gorgeous....and don't feel bad. I once locked myself out of the house - in the dead of winter....and hubby works 45 minutes away!

Luckily I was in the garage...and luckily, there was a space heater in there I could plug well as a chair to sit on. Luck was just all around me that
