Now that Thanksgiving is over...Merry Christmas!


Well, I did not go out for Black Friday today, but instead spent the day with my sister making cards for challenges. Don't you think that's much more fun than standing in lines? I used the stamp from Whiff of Joy (their challenge was for a Christmas card) and the sketch if from Create 4 Fun. I used a recipe challenge from Pink Elephant- to use plaid, brads and no ribbon. I love using fabrics on my cards, so I used felt on this for the challenge at Creative Card Crew - My Favorite Things. I used a pink and brown color scheme for the challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar. I added stitching with a border of hand stitched French knots around my felt mat, for the challenge at Pixie Cottage. You may not notice, but I have a chipboard snowflake (challenge at Creative Belli Blog is for chipboard) peeking out from behind my Snowman mat. I sprayed it with Tattered Angels so it's nice and sparkly.




It seems that there are quite a few challenges this week to make a Christmas card, so this
card is also for:
Sparkle Creations
Pollycraft
Whimsy Stamps
Everybody Art
Charisma Cardz
Flourishes
Papertake Weekly
