Sparkle Creations Christmas Card Challenge #41

Sunday, September 12, 2010

Good morning to you.  Besides Sunday, do you know what else today is?  The Broncos first game of the regular season.  I love football and am hoping that the Broncos can make a better showing this year.

It's also time for another challenge at Sparkle Creations Christmas Card Challenges.  The optional challenge this week on top of making  a Christmas/holiday card is to use Christmas trees.  I had this fun sparkly paper in my stash and decided it would be perfect for the challenge.
Patterned Paper:  Paper Studio

Stamps:  PTI
Other:  CTMH twill ribbon, PTI die and buttons

Did you know that Christmas is just 3 1/2 months away?  Crazy, huh?  Are you prepared with your Christmas cards?  Come play with us and you can be.  :)  Have a good one.

You rose to Sparkle's challenge very well, Alanna! That tree paper is so fun and I love what you did with the twill! Ahhhh and your buttons. *Ü*

I'm excited for the start of the season, too. I hope they can overcome the injuries they've suffered. I was watching/listening to the Josh McDaniels show last night (nothing else was on that I wanted to watch) and he made a good point. Last year the team didn't fully get his system and this year they understand it much better. Let's hope that is a good thing! Go Broncos!
