Good afternoon!  I have another card for today!  

Trying to get some cards posted and paint walls at the same time!  Yeah, I'm painting walls four days before a major holiday.  LOL  Well, it wouldn't be any other way for me ---always doing something at the last minute!  The walls would be done by now, except that the yellow hue I thought I wanted turned out to be icky on the wall, so I had to try another one and I always give it a day to grow on me before buying that big ole gallon size of paint.  Plus, on top of painting walls, the Hubs and I have sanded down some furniture pieces to paint as well.  Like I said, I never do anything partial OR in a timely fashion!  LOL

Yet, I am very confident I will have the living/dining room and hallway all painted and back together before Wed afternoon when our youngest son comes home.  I may not have both furniture pieces done but that's ok.  I'm having another paint color issue with our dining buffet. I'm wanting a subdued barn red but so far everything is turning out brighter and redder than I want.  To be continued...

Speaking of red, my card (real subject at hand), is done in red velvet and silver ---
PAPER: White cardbase and white cardstock (Bazzill heavy); Red velvet specialty paper; Silver glitter self stick paper; embossed vellum.
EXTRAS: Lacy scalloped circle die (Spellbinders); Bell dies (Lil Inker Designs); Jolly word die (Lil Inker Designs); striped embossing folder (Cuttlebug).
I've ordered some new stamping supplies for Christmas cards and the bell and "jolly" word die were the first things to arrive.  (Still waiting on everything else).  I thought they were perfect with the silver glitter paper and also for the current challenge at Fusion (Sparkly Christmas).

Check back at the end of the week to see how my redecorating resolved!

Whoah, now this is an amazing card! Really like the use of the word die, and how Jolly just pops but yet the silvery bells compliment so nicely! You've inspired me to pull out my LID Christmas dies again, thank you!
