Hello everyone,
Today's HO HO HO Merry Christmas card was designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon's Challenge & for The Project Bin Stamps. Awwww Christmas is my FAVORITE Holiday, and I absolutely LOVE decorating my house. I decorate every room in my home, even the bathrooms & Laundry room, I also have multiple trees that I decorate too, its Super FUN!!! This year I am hoping to be able to send out Christmas cards, as last year I did not!

 Ok so for todays card we were to use Buttons & Bows for the challenge, and I did that. I used Really Reasonable Ribbons Shimmer Satin in Brown & Red! LOVE this ribbon, its super easy to use and the look is absolutely GORGEOUS! Buttons are from my stash!
Bow- I used Really Reasonable Ribbon's Shimmer Satin in Brown for the Large bow, then  I created a smaller one using the Red Shimmer Satin. LOVE the look of this!!!

Stamp Sentiment is The Project Bins NEW stamp release and this one is called "Maybe Christmas" LOVE the sentiments in this set! I will be back with more of these soon!! I stamped my sentiment in Memento black ink , and then placed my holly stamp and inked it up using StampinUp! Wild Wasabi color ink. I am using my Mini Misti and it makes it nice to place your stamps and keep inking them if you need to get a darker look with your ink. Like my green I wanted deeper green, so I inked it up again. NICE!!  I then added some red using the Viva Pearl pens. I surely need to buy more of these, as I LOVE using them!

Santa is a Chipboard piece I got a few years back at the American Crafts warehouse sale they have here in Utah. I worked their for awhile, and even for the company in their warehouse, LOVE it!!  Anyways for Santa, I used NUVO Pure Sheer glitter from JustRite Papercraft & Flower Soft in Polar white to decorate up Santa.

Design Paper- DCWV Tis the Season stack. LOVE the designs in this large stack :)

Hope you enjoyed my post today, and will join us for Really Reasonable Ribbon's "Button & Bows" challenge!
