Christmas Card Challenge Week #36

Hi ya'll!!

This is going to be a short post for me today.  I've worked from 6am to 11pm, everyday, since Tuesday.  I'm completely exhausted, and headed back to bed.  I have another Christmas Card challenge for you.  This week we're recycling.  For this weeks challenge, click HERE.


Can you tell where I tookt his picture?  Yep, out on the steps behind our warehouse, at work.  Gotta do what you gotta do sometimes, eh? lol  So, I loved this challenge.  I had a hard time coming up with something though.  For my recycled part, I used the backing off of some dimensionals that I used up.  I ran them through my Cuttlebug with my Snowflake dies from MFT.  It's a cute card, and I loved this weeks Sweet Stop Sketch (#120).  I also used this weeks Color Throwdown (#153).  All in all, it turned out well, and I have another card to add to my stash.  How many do you have done this year? :)

Please keep in mind that the challenges are optional.  Any Christmas/Winter/Holiday card will do.  You don't have to use a Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp on your card, but we sure love it when you do.  I hope you'll head over to see what the lovely design team, and our new guest designer have created for you today.  They're all really nice, as usual.

Hugs!
