2012 Christmas Card Challenge Week #10


It's crazy around here today, so this is going to be short and sweet.  I'm going to meet a friend for lunch, and I'm trying to get ready for Super Bowl.  I have to bake something for the gathering I was invited to, but I may not make it, if I don't get it in gear.  I've updated my blog a bit.  I couldn't pass up using this template, it's called "Stephanie".  Perfect! :)   

I have my next Christmas Card challenge card for you.  This weeks challenge is to create your own background, of any kind.  For all of the details, click HERE.

I wanted to really showcase the background I wanted to make, so I kept this very CAS.  It's lovely, isn't it?  Blue is my favorite color, so it's no wonder I reach for it often.  Thank goodness blue and white is a great winter color combo too.  I think this is the first card I've made in a long time that didn't have a Nestie or embossing on it.  I guess it didn't kill me not to use them either. lol  I've also combined the following challenges in my card.

Crafty Contagion - Winter/Snow
Card Patterns #151 - Sketch (my loose interpretation)
Jellypark Challenges - Winter Wonderland
Winter Wonderland - Blue & White Color Combo

I do hope you'll head over to the CCC to see what my friends have made today.  They're adorable, as usual!

Stay crafty my friends!
