*Too Little?*

Happy Wednesday everyone... kind of a busy one for me today.  Once Bruce is home from the gym I am going to run out to do some errands that include some Christmas shopping, a return, and looking for a top to wear with black dress pants to a Christmas party tomorrow night.  I have a hair appointment at noon to get it trimmed up and get my highlights and lowlights done again.  Then Matthew needs to be taken to drums and I will probably stop at the grocery store while he's at drums to find something to make for dinner.

Go go go

Bruce is all excited as the new laptop he ordered for our business is out for delivery today (it was supposed to arrive yesterday but it didn't make it on a truck apparently).  So we're being careful to ensure there is one of us home all day as an adult must sign for the delivery.  He's like a little kid at Christmas LOL!

I was happy to see one more sketch for 2010 on Beate's blog on Friday.  I wish I had had my thoughts together on Friday to have borrowed Merlie's Nestabilities in the shape shown on the sketch....  instead I had to use what I had on hand.

Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Old Olive, Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla
*Patterned Paper:  Imaginisce
*Images:  Hero Arts Holiday Cheer
*Ink:  Stampin' Up! Old Olive
*Tools:  Big Shot; Labels 2 Nestabilities; Spellbinders snowflake die
*Challenges:  WSC110


Now, the question is.... should I have done this card a little differently and added some texture to the green layer??? Maybe a vanilla card with a smaller green layer sent through the Big Shot with an embossing folder?

I like the card....  but I wonder if I'm missing something?
