10 Minute KSS Merry Christmas

My Christmas stash box is practically empty so I decided to get it in gear this week with Christmas cards for this week's Kitchen Sink Stamps 10 minute design. It took a couple of minutes to computer generate the Merry Christmas text and print it in colors I planned to use on my designs. I then added my stamped and matted KSS images over the text and added a matching mat to the panel before gluing it to the white card front. At this rate, I can have my box full in no time!
