Jolly Holiday

Happy Monday! First, let me take a moment to thank any and all veterans of the United States Military. I'm grateful for all you've done and continue to do for us! This day's for you!!!


It's also time for another Christmas card. This week is a sketch challenge week. The sketch was provided by the very talented Maria.

and here's my card:



Now these papers wouldn't normally be my first choice for a Christmas card BUT the image reminds me of my Christmas tree and well there would be a lot of color on it! I made red be the main color which is a normal Christmas color. It's kind of nice to have a different color scheme of just red and green though. I hope we have more color challenges on this blog (if you missed last week, check out Debbie's color challenge).


Check out the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog to play along and see the other team members cards. We'd love to see what you'd come up with!!


We don't have much planned for today. We spent yesterday doing some much needed deep cleaning in the house and yard work. I'm hoping to spend quite a bit of time in my room creating away...keep your fingers crossed!


Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!! If you've got time, leave me a comment. I so enjoy reading each and every one of them!!
