Sparkle Creations Christmas Card Challenge #22

Sunday, May 2, 2010

Well, I survived yesterday.  It was a crazy day but the party went well.  Thankfully, the weather held and we were able to do it in our backyard rather than have all 14 boys in my small living room.  Rain was forecasted but someone was smiling down on me and my sanity.

It's time for another challenge at Sparkle Creations Christmas Card Challenge.  The optional theme this week is to use bows on your card.  I have to admit that this one stumped me a bit as I don't have any stamps with bows on them.  So, I found this cute image online, printed it out, and I was all set.

Stamps:  CTMH

Other:  Cuttlebug, circle punches
My card is also for Fab's Big Christmas Card Challenge for the wreath.  It also fits this week's challenge at Delightful Sketches for punches.  I used two different circle punches for my sentiment.

I hope you'll head over to the challenge blog and see what Sparkle and the other designers have for you.  And then come play with us.  It's never too early to start your 2010 Christmas cards. 

I hope you have a great Sunday.  I'll be going to church and cutting materials for some of our Relay cards.

Darling card - the bow is quite prominent!!! LOL

So glad the party went well and you survived! Birthday parties, in my DD's youth, were pretty high-emotion days! I never knew what would happen!

Awesome card, Alanna! The image is cute, and I love the traditional colors.

I'm glad to hear you were able to entertain all those little boys in your backyard. I don't know if any house is large enough to accommodate that much energy! LOL.

Enjoy your day!
