Christmas Card Challenge Week #51

Wow, there's only one week left for this years challenges.  As I was creating this card, and it's really amazing how wonderful it is, feeling like I've accomplished something.  I have consistently created a Christmas card just about every week this last year.  How helpful these challenges are for me.  I'm so happy to be a part of it.  So, enough rambling.  For this weeks challenge, click HERE.


Aren't these mittens adorable?  My friend, SuzyQ, let me borrow her stamp so that I could use it for this weeks challenge.  I paper pieced them and then matted them on several Nesties.  At first, I didn't like this color combo, at all.  But after working it out, I really like these colors together, for a non-traditional look.  What do you think? 

I hope you'll head over to see who our wonderful guest designer is and to check out what my friends have put together for you today.  So tell me, how many Christmas cards have you made this year already? ;)

Much love!
Steph

I LOVE that color combination, Steph!!! In fact, this card is wonderful - the layout is so appealing! I may have to case your layout sometime! Beautiful card, my friend! BTW, I saw that the challenge at Wee Memories this week is to include pink on your card! Hugs...

I have made about 3 or 4 so far, but not 'officialy' for mailing this year. Must get going!!
