Merry Christmas

Sunday, October 18, 2009

I haven't been able to play in Sparkle's weekly Christmas card challenge for the past couple of weeks and it's made me sad so I made time yesterday to make a card for this week's challenge. It also qualifies for the challenge at PaperPlay this week which is to use your favorite embellishment.

I am totally loving my card and it is probably in my favorite top 5 of about the 45 Christmas cards I've made this year. Again, my simplistic nature has shown through but it's the colors and the gorgeous paper that I'm in love with.

Patterned paper: Unknown
Stamps: CTMH So Sweet Seasons
Other: Tag punch, PTI buttons, CTMH ribbon and waxy flax

I'd also like to thank everyone who commented on Friday's post about Arianne's birthday. Your thoughts mean a lot to me and I truly appreciate the love and support I felt.

Well, I hope you have a fabulous Sunday. Mine will be filled with church, football, and studying. Until next time, take good care.

Have a Blessed Sunday : )

Oh that's a lovely card, Alanna. I'm nearly sure I have that paper here somewhere - is it Cosmo Cricket Oh Joy??? Or not!!! It's just perfect, whatever it is!!

Thanks for joining us on PaperPlay this week.
