So . . . what'cha waiting for?
Go shopping. It's OK . . . I'll wait!

Welcome back, my lovelies!! Wasn't that fun?!! Now . . . quick question . . . How many days 'til Christmas? ANSWER: Not nearly enough for me to get everything done that needs getting done! LOL!! Story of my life, me thinks!! I did get something fabulous done, though . . . my card for this week's challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! Yay!! And, yes . . . it IS another Christmas card! hehe! Just a few more to make and then I can make something non-Christmas-y!! But, I digress . . . this week's theme at Mo's is another fun one . . .

"D" is for . . .
(e.g., dogs, drums, dessert, die cuts, dancing, etc., etc., etc.)
 
And here's what I came up with . . .
I struggled with this week's challenge, I have to tell ya! In the end, though, I thought . . . DANCING!! You know . . . kind of a "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" thing. Oh ohhhhh...Sidebar: Did'ja see the cute Dancin' Baby calendar in my blog's um, er, sidebar?! hehe! That baby totally cracks me up!! Once again, I digress! I was talking about "Dancing" right?! Well, as luck would have it, I found this perfect little Mo Manning image called "Cutting the Rug"! You can find it HERE in Mo's online store. Here's an extreme close-up . . .
I was thinking that this would be a fun card to send out from my hubby and moi! Of course the little guy just had to be wearing khaki slacks and a blue blazer . . . that's my husband's "outfit of choice" . . . while mine is certainly not a dress . . . it's blue jeans! Not to mention the fact that my hair was only curly like this when I was 6 years old and had gotten a terrible "Shirley Temple" perm!! hehehe!! Enough about me . . . here's a bit of a side view . . .
My card "recipe" . . .
Image printed on Cryogen "metallic" cardstock
Red Riding Hood cardstock, ribbon, & clip: Stampin' Up
DP & brads  Bo Bunny's "Blitzen" collection
Sentiment: LOTV "Grunge"
Corrugated cardboard and inside sentiment: My stash
Copic Sketch markers & colored pencils

A peek at the inside . . .
And, one more view . . . of course . . .  
So, what'cha think? I'm pretty pleased with the outcome . . . especially since this week's theme sort of stumped me!

Okey dokey . . .  please be sure to pop on over to Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog HERE to check out the brilliant projects created by my very talented DT sisters! Then, please join the fun this week at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! Just remember to use one (or more) of Mo Manning's images (you can find them in Mo's online store HERE). Oooh . . . and don't forget . . . Mo is giving away one $5.00 voucher at her online stores for every 25 entries! (selected by Random.Org, of course).

Thanks so much for stopping by . . . and, as always, for your kind comments! Until next time . . . hugs . . . .

Awesome, my sweet Pat! Love those lush papers and the yummy bow. Your coloring of this wonderful image is simply gorgeous! And besides, I think my book is telling the same story than yours... Time is running too fast for me to prepare cards and my stuff in general for Christmas in time...
Big hugs to you, Anja
