Hi everyone!

It seems that I was in the Christmas mood this weekend.  I guess being gone from the CCC design team for so long gives me the urgency to get caught up. lol  I'm loving the fact that my creative mojo is coming back, and that I'm able to add to my stash again.  Here is another Christmas card I made.

You know me, I'm not normally one to follow the traditional red/green Christmas card color scheme, but these papers were too beautiful not to use.  And the polka dotted butterfly?  LOVE!  I've combined the following challenges for this card.

Sketchbook Saturday #17 - Sketch (I love Chupa's sketches!)
Creative Inspirations #62 - Stitching (I did faux stitching along the line beneath the hearts, next to the twine)
Paper Sundaes #75 - Sundae Bar (I chose wings and gems)
Scrappy Frogs - Simply Red (use red on your project)
I Did It Creations #61 - Mid-Year Christmas
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge #26 - Anything Goes
Designed2Delight - Red, White & Blue and/or Christmas Too (obviously I went with Christmas lol)

I'm glad that you stopped by today.  Hope you have a great week!
