Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge Week #21

Sunday, April 25, 2010

Good morning to you.  It's time for another challenge at Sparkle Creations Christmas Card Challenges.  The challenge this week is to use pink as the main color.  My most favorite color EVER!  It also fits this week's challenge at Bah Humbug which is Christmas themed and also wants pink. Raise the Bar also wants something made with your favorite color.  Lastly, it's also for Fab's Big Christmas Card Challenge.

I decided to make a Christmas thank you card, one that can be easily reproduced.  It's kind of hard to tell in the photo but I did stitch around the paper.
Patterned Paper:  Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses

Stamps:  PTI Signature Christmas
Other:  CTMH ribbon, nesties, PTI buttons

So soccer ended up being cancelled yesterday.  The rains were just too much.  I also visited the eye doctor earlier in the week and found time to pick out a new pair of frames yesterday.  Sitting in front of a computer all day is certainly wreaking havoc on my eyes.  I pretty much have the glasses to take a bit of the strain off my eyes from them having to focus so much.  They have definitely  made a difference in how my eyes feel.  Before, they were so tired and they just hurt.  Now, it's much more rare that they hurt. 

Make sure and head over to the blog to see the other cards from my co- design team members.  You will love them.  I hope you have a terrific day.

This came out cute. Hey... when you stitch on the card like that does it leave marks INSIDE your card? that is what happens when I do it, that's why I don't stitch for real anymore... :(

Your card is very pretty, Alanna! Love the idea of having thank you cards already made for the holidays.

Sorry to hear that soccer got cancelled, but hopefully, the sun came out later in the day for you guys (like it did us) and started drying things out.

Good job on getting the glasses. It's amazing what we put our eyes through without even thinking about it! I'm glad yours don't hurt anymore.

Have a happy Sunday!
