Project Christmas 2011 ~ card 3

My 3rd christmas card for 2011, very cool indeed!
Thanks to Jingle Belles

This week is to use Acrylic Paint
I use white on pale pink cardstock


hmmm..... not the result I want but oh well...





Thanks for stopping by. 
Although we have Spring weather here in Vegas, but I am under the weather, on top of that, busy with house guest and husband is traveling, no time for my little craft, *sigh..... this is not going to be a fun week for me : (
