Christmas JOY and some Humor!!

Hi Stampers! So here is my creation from stamping tonight. I've been wanting to try my Chipboard Characters from Cosmo Cricket since October when I purchased them.

Now do you want to know the funny part of my card? If you look closely at my photo... my red DP, which has script writing, at the very bottom it has a line saying "For Being so Ugly"!! I didn't notice this till I finished the card.... my jaw dropped and I was speechless! I showed my DH and he gave me a big smile. This was the first time I used this DP and only used a small piece in the lower corner. Of all my choices!!! LOL :)

I used my CuttleBug Distressed Stripes embossing on my Kraft and added more distressing with Close to Cocoa on the edges and high spots. I used my Nestie dies for my circle window, added brads in the upper corners, and paper pierced the Forest Foliage.

Thanks for the visit and I hope you enjoy!!! Keep warm, it's -20 below at my house. (I have a few blog followers that are in sunny 80's that can pass that warmth to me!!)

Very nice card. Isn't it funny how we use things without really seeing the whole picture. I do like the design you have here.

Michelle, this is one gorgeous creation! I love the rustic feel that textured background gives the design! I love the hidden message on the bottom too! LOL!

I absolutely love, love this card. I didn't notice the sentiment until you pointed it out...It's got me thinking what does the rest of the paper say? LOL! I've got a thing for anything distressed and those embossed lines fit the card so well. The color combination is excellent! The whole card has a je ne sais qua about it. I have CASEd you before, I just might have to do it again. :)
