Naughty or Nice? Hmmmmm . . .

Well, well well . . . here we are in December!! You've probably seen people posting the number of days 'til Christmas . . . well, no worries! I'm not going to do that! Ya know why not? Because I can't even think beyond dinner tonight, let alone how many days 'til Christmas!! So . . . you're safe with me! Ohhhhhh . . . but one thing I do know is that it's time for another fabby (and festive) challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! And, because this is the first Thursday of the month . . . that means our theme is . . .
ANYTHING GOES!
Wheet whooo! And, no surprise here, I've made yet another Christmas card!!
Now this card turned out rather clean and simple . . . and I quite like it because the white background beautifully showcases this little Mo Manning image called "Who, Me?" I sure think this little guy looks like he's been up to "no good" and has just been "caught in the act" . . . hehehe! Hence the sentiment, "Naughty or Nice?" You can find this image HERE in Mo's online store. Here's an extreme close-up . . . 
This little guy reminds me of my boys, especially my eldest son, AJ. He was always into some kind of mischief! And then he'd play the "innocent victim" when he was caught in the act! LOL!! Here's a bit of a side view . . .
 My card "recipe" . . .
Image printed on Cryogen "metallic" cardstock
Whisper White cardstock: Stampin' Up
Embossing folder: Cuttlebug
DPs (inside) "Winter Wonderland" by My Mind's Eye
Raffia, bells, & inside sentiment: My stash
#10 Frilly Square dies: Go Kreate
Tree die: Dee's Distinctively
Sentiment (front): Whimsy
Copic Sketch markers & colored pencils

A peek at the inside . . .
And, of course, the "artistic" angle . . .
So, now you must ask yourself . . . "Have I been naughty or nice?" Me? Well . . . Nice, of course!! Bwahaha-snort-haha!! I crack myself up!!
 
Now . . . 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 . . . .
