Christmas Card Challenges #10

Sunday, February 6, 2011

Welcome to this week's post for Christmas Card Challenges.  The optional challenge this week is an inspiration challenge.  Click here to see the photo that inspired this card.  Remember, the only real rule to play is that you create a Christmas or holiday card so that you won't be so stressed out come December 2011.  And if that's not reason enough to play along, it's the first Sunday of the month, which means that Sparkle is offering up one of her stamps, from Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps, as a prize.  Does it get much better than that?

It goes without saying, but my card makes it into my 10 minute card category.  I'm happy with how it turned out, though, and love the look of the textured cardstock.
Stamps:  CTMH

Other:  Adhesive pearls from my stash

So do you watch football?  We're excited for the Super Bowl, even though the Broncos didn't quite make it this year.  You know, they were really close.  Okay, they were second worst in the league.  Ouch. 

Anyway, I hope that however you spend your day, that it's a good one for you.  As always, I truly appreciate your visits and comments.  Keeps me going.

Beautiful card, Alanna. That pink is so pretty and I really like the pearls on the ornament. The textured cardstock gives it some extra ooomph, too. Great job!

Ha, ha! You are so funny with regards to the Broncos! Hey, did you hear, Shannon Sharp is headed for the Hall of Fame in August. Yay for him!

I love the simplicity of this card. Great job!

Seeing as how I'm in the Dallas area, and it's been crazy with the weather and extra people in town, I think I'm going to stay home and watch the Super Bowl on tv. It's going to be insane today! lol
