Another (Quick) Christmas Card

Well, I'm not sure that this qualifies as "quick" since there is a little bit of coloring in it, but I got the idea from my friend Tara, who sent me a Christmas card with a similar design, but it had cute printed card stock with reindeer on it) on the center strip and plain card stock on the background.  She didn't even need to stamp or color anything!  I loved the simplicity.  

I still have bunches of Christmas cards to make - I made 50 of these last night.  I stamped the snowmen, colored and glittered last night ... then let the Glitz Glitter Gel dry while I slept.  I have to finish assembling tonight and then write my cards.  yikes!  Running out of time!  And I still have to make my Mother-in-Law's scrapbooking gift!

Plus, I wanted to use up my retired stuff - my Citrus Leaf Card Stock and inks.  (That was a factor in the color choices.)

Nothing like waiting until the last minute!  (You know me, I work best under pressure!)
