Christmas Card Challenges Week #52

Hi everyone!

Can you believe it?! We've made it to the last week of Christmas Card challenges for this year! Wow, I'm so excited, and have been inspired every week by everyone's cards. It is truly a pleasure to be on such a great team, with such a wonderful "head elf". I love that I have accumulated so many cards, and have zero stress at this time of year. There will be a few announcements on the 1st of December, so be sure to head over to the challenge blog to see what's up for 2011.

Now, onto this weeks challenge, a sketch. Peggy has been a blessing in helping us create the sketches for this year, and I'm sure you'll enjoy the ones she's created for us for the next year as well. For this weeks challenge, click HERE.


I really like how my card turned out. I had never thought to stamp the sentiment onto patterned paper before, but think I'll do that more often now. The sketch allowed for me to use some new goodies I've had in my stash as well. I like the ease of use of Tim Holtz's tissue tape, and the felt Christmas tree border adds a nice touch as well. I finished it off with a modified MFT snowflake, and made it sparkly with stickles, even though you can't see it that well. All in all, it's a very pretty card, in reall life, and I'm sure someone in my office will buy it. lol

I am truly blessed to have finished the year, and to have had your support. I hope you'll head over to the challenge blog to see what my friends have created for you, and to see who our final guest designer for this year is. Don't forget to keep an eye on the challenge blog for our announcement on the 1st as well!

Much love,
