Sparkle's weekly Christmas card challenge #18

Sunday, April 4, 2010

The day has come for my first post as part of Sparkle's DT for her Christmas card challenge blog.  I'm super excited and loved this picture she gave us for inspiration.  Don't those cookies look absolutely fabulous?  I drew my inspiration from both the colors and the snowman.

My card is also for Fab's Big Christmas Card Challenge, Bah Humbug for Christmas and embossing, and Our Creative Corner wants buttons. It also fits the challenge over at Delightful Sketches for buttons and bling.

Stamps:  PTI Signature Christmas, Vintage Labels; CTMH Snowman
Other:  Cuttlebug, Nesties, snowflake punch, CTMH buttons, stickles

Since it's the first Sunday of the month, there is a prize to be given to one lucky participant.  I hope you'll come play with us as we get our Christmas cards ready throughout the year.  I've already said this but I think it's worth mentioning again.  I had nearly 60 cards ready to send out by the beginning of last December, thanks to Sparkle and her weekly challenges.  I have to tell you, it felt really good to send out handmade cards instead of store bought.

Anyway, link your creation up here and I'd love to come check it out.  Also, using the above picture for inspiration on your card is not necessary.  Any Christmas or winter themed card will do.

Have a great Sunday and a fabulous Easter day.
