Joyful Christmas!

Anyone out there ready for Christmas?  No?  Me either!  I'm still waiting for the warm weather we were promised here in Michigan.  Let's see if we get it today. lol  Even though I'm not ready for Christmas I'm definitely ready to make more Christmas cards!  I haven't been keeping up my pace though. :(  I'm supposed to be making four of each of the cards I post on here and haven't done it in a while.  I need to get busy!  Speaking of getting busy, 'Tis the Season is getting busy teaming up with the Jingle Belles for our next challenge.  'Tis the Season's challenge is a sketch challenge and Jingle Belles is "Bling".  Perfect combination if you ask me...and I've heard the word PRIZES. :)  There will be a prize offered on 'Tis the Season and on Jingle Belles.  The twist is in order to be eligible you have to do both challenges.  No problem with that, right?!  


I used the sketch a little loosely because my flower is so big, but I love how it turned out.  I also used the traditional red and green Christmas colors.  I don't think I've those colors much on my cards if I've even done it at all.  Oh, I can't forget about my bling...the gold embossing adds a little bit, but I scored some of my card stock and put pearls on my card.  I've seen it done here and there, but have never tried it myself.  Guess I can check that off my list, but I'm sure I'll be doing it again some time.  Don't forget to head on over to 'Tis the Season and the Jingle Belles to see all the great designers' cards and to play along too.



Thanks for looking and have a great day!
