Happy Tuesday! Today it's all about cards! If you're looking for inspiration or just trying to keep busy if that nasty Storm Issac is in your area, then you've come to the right place! I got a head start on Christmas for my card today! Take a look, then let's chat!

I used CTMH's Artiste Cricut Cartridge to cut the HoHoHo out. I love how it looks like I cut each Ho out with a different font, but nope, they're all connected. I added some inking to the edges, tied a little red bow to adorn the center Ho. I used a Cuttlebug Christmas embossing folder for the background and added that to my card with for little gold brads. I made the base from an 81/2 x 11 piece of red cardstock cut in half. When I used a colored base, I always add a piece of white to the inside for my message. We all have those add pieces around, and I think that's a nice touch. So with a card this quick and easy, no good reason why you can't have a supply for your holiday card list in no time! I hope you have a wonderful holiday, but if you're currently in the patch of Issac, stay safe!
