Sparkle Creations Christmas Card Challenge #24

Sunday, May 16, 2010

Good morning to you.  I'm here with my card for this week's Sparkle Creations Christmas Card Challenge.  The optional theme this week is to add a snowman to your Christmas or holiday card.

My card also fits this week's challenge over at Practical Scrappers which is to use punches.  Bah Humbug wants to see a Christmas card using a border punch.  Lastly, my card is also for Fab's Big Christmas Card Challenge.
Stamps:  CTMH, PTI Signature Christmas

Other:  Fiskars border punch, liquid applique

In Relay card news, we made 364 cards yesterday.  There were 6 of us.  At this point, I don't know if I ever want to look at paper again.  :)  It seems all I've been doing for the past 3 weeks is cutting, stamping, embossing, etc.  My co-workers were very sweet and made me a thank you card and tucked a Hobby Lobby gift card in there.  I was touched by their thoughtfulness.  There are 40 more cards to make but I am waiting on some ribbon to get those done. 
Thanks for your visit.  Take care and have a most restful Sunday.

Cute card, Alanna! Snowmen are so cute even though I don't want to see a real one for a very long time. LOL.

Awesome job with the relay cards. Like Sharli said, an effort of love. Comparing it to wedding invitations, I know how you feel about not wanting anything to do with paper for a while. The thought makes me shudder. LOL.

Have a great week, friend!

What a great Christmas card! Congrats on being able to do so many challenges with it.

Congrats as well on your ability to get so many cards made! That is awesome. I can't imagine having to create so many cards at one time. It's no wonder you don't really want to play with paper for a while. Good luck on the final set!

Have a great week, Sweetie!
