Naughty or nice?

Well, which on are YOU?! I'm both...at different times. AND NO, not in a BAD way!!! Get your minds out of the gutter! ;D

Anyway, I have a really close stamping buddy/adopted sister who LOVED this sentiment when she saw it, and so I HAD to make a card for her with it. What is UP with me using the CAPS LOCK tonight?! I dunno...it's been a long day...hence the lateness of this post. *sigh*

ANYWHO...this card is for two challenges: Stamptacular Sunday Anything Christmas, and Top Tip Tuesday Touch of Color.

I DO have a tip for you tonight (not stupendously fabulous or anything, just something that's helped me out lately)~when you are going to tie ribbon or elastic cording around a panel of paper, tape it in the center to the back of your card panel first. Then it's WAY easier to tie it around and make it stay where you want it. :)

Okay, now onto the card~

Details~



What're your thoughts, feelings, and comments?! I thought that pink would be the PERFECT touch of color for this card--my stamping buddy is a VERY girly girl and I KNOW she'll love it...it's her Christmas card for this season. :)

I used lots of NEW things for this card--my new DCWV patterned paper, my NEW Core-dinations Pearly paper and my NEW baker's twine! :) LOVE IT!!! Hopefully you can see all the glitter, glitz, and shimmer in the pictures...

Once again, I want to remind you that if I get 100 followers by January 1, 2012, I will be giving away blog candy!!! :) Please follow me for a chance to win it! Happy stamping!
