CAS-ual Fridays: Knotty or Nice

Hello there!  It's Friday!  I have the day off today and am hoping to get a decent amount of my Christmas shopping complete.  I've normally got a decent amount done by this point, but not this year!  So...today needs to be productive!

But...before I get out shopping, we need to talk about the latest challenge at CAS-ual Fridays:  Knotty or Nice...have fun...use some knots on your cards.  Our awesome sponsor is Simon Says Stamps and this is also our guest designer challenge!

 I had fun using two CAS-ual Fridays stamps sets:  Countdown and Snowflake Greetings. Don't you just love the gorgeous pattern from the Countdown set?  I've been and will continue to use it a lot!  And...I finished the card off with the yummy satin ribbon.  Love the elegant feel of the card.
So, come play along...are you Knotty or Nice?  We'd love to find out! :)

Beautiful card, yes that is a great set and your bow is just Wow! I was nice today, spent the day crafting with my Mom. She had many projects she wanted to get done and she did. Shopping is barely started, I hope you have a productive day!
