Never to early to start on Christmas cards

Hello my crafting friends,

I am here to share with you a card that I made using this wonderful My Besties IMG925.
This is one of my favorites so far. I used my favorite color combo on this card. I just think red, white, and black look so classy together. If you are ever stuck on a color combo, just remember you pretty much can't go wrong using these colors together. ;)
I will post the supplies I used at the end of my blog post if you are interested.

I wanted to share another card I made using IMG898. Isn't he a real cutie! Actually, I just found out depending on how you color this image, it could go either way, boy or girl. Oh, shoot, I wish I would have taken a picture showing you both ways.
This is my tip of the day:
This background is so fast and easy to make. My hubby always refers to it as a painted background, lol when all it really is is inks that I have used. If you have a tree stamp, stamp the darkest trees in the front first. Then lighter in the background. All of the trees were stamped with black ink. I pulled out my trusty dauber and inked the trees green. Trying to stay with the darker green out front and then lighter applying with the ink for the background trees. I wiped the dauber and then used light baby blue ink starting with in between the trees at the bottom. Next I used orange ink, and finally I worked up to the top of the sky using yellow ink. That's it! Now you have a pretty cool looking background and no one will believe it only took a few minutes to do. :)

Well, that's it for today!
