Love, peace, & joy - CCC #35


Do you realize it is exactly 20 weeks until Christmas??  That's only 140 days!  I am doing my best to have my cards made early, so that in the crazy rush of December, at least I won't have to stress about that!  Christmas Card Challenges #35 begins today... play along and that will help you get your cards done on time, too!

Many of my cards are mailed, so I'm really trying to keep them at least somewhat flat, but I still want them to be pretty.  I think this card fits the bill...


The DP really did most of my work.  My Cuttlebug did the rest! ;)   I used Recollections Winter Frost DP.  The sentiment is a page from that pad, too, and cut out using Spellbinders Scalloped Labels 1 and framed with Spellbinders Labels 1.   The snowflakes are Sweet n Sassy Small Snowflakes dies, and the flourish is CC Designs Winter Wonderland.   The silver paper is so shiny and pretty!!



This week's optional challenge is a photo inspiration... (Remember the only real rule is that you create a Christmas/holiday card.)  The snowflakes inspired me.  I love snow!!!!! ♥


So please play along!  When you do, be sure to check out the DT's creations and the other players, as well.  Talk about inspiration!!!  It will really get you ready to create!


Challenges...
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas #293 - vintage or anything goes (I did anything goes)
jingle belles JB:16:16 - We Three Kings (use 3 of anything -- I used 3 papers...hope that counts!)
Sweet Stampin' Christmas July - anything goes
Winter Wonderland - gold/silver or embossed BG (I used silver)


Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Gorgeous card Debby. Did you have to remind us there's only 20 weeks? Yikes I really need to get moving. I need to get my FIL's Christmas cards done before the twins arrive. I doubt I will have time afterwards. Hope you have a wonderful week and thanks for the inspiration.
