Fun Christmas card

It is so much easier to make cards when I have the recipient in mind!  That's the case with this fun card.  When I saw this "Pain and Pride" set of stamps over at ipity, I had to get it!  For Christmas, we got ski gear for our kids, so knew this would be great for them, but then thought of this friend who skis and will get a kick out of this card!  

Challenges...
~Get Hippity with Ippity - follow sketch
~Celebrate the Occasion - Christmas card with no green  (they are having a DT call until Dec 20...check it out if you are interested)
~Cuttlebug Spot (soooo glad they are back!!)- "leftovers" use scraps (emboss in some way)


~all paper from my scrap box
~"Pain and Pride" stamp set from ipitty
~American Crafts and Zig markers, white gel pen
~Christmas stamp from ???
~Swiss Dots embossing folder
~EK success in on edges
~Fiskars scissors (1st use in years!!!!!)

I did a bit to the inside, too...

Thanks for stopping by!!!
