Challenge #47 - To "DIE" for

Thank goodness it's Friday!! I'm SO ready for the weekend!! How about you? Big plans? Whatever you have planned, I hope it's a good one! Thank you for joining me for another Christmas Challenge - I know it's only April but it's never too early to start on those Christmas cards and projects. Every year, I struggle with getting everything done in December. By creating at least one card a week I know I will have a majority of my cards completed when it's time to send them out! One less thing to stress about - who couldn't use that?

Today, our challenge at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long (CSAYL) is to use DIECUTS. I know a lot of people own Cricuts, Cuttlebugs, Quickutz, Big Shots - so this challenge is for you! Or if your like me, you own all those machines but opt to use a diecut in your supply stash, LOL!

I've had some of these diecuts FOREVER...so long I don't even know where I got them or who made them. I paired my Santa diecut with BG paper (LOVE IT) and a TAC sentiment (Holiday Wishes) along with a few embellishments and bazinga one holiday card completed! WHATCHA THINK?

Hope you'll join us this week. If you do, just visit the CSAYL blog to link your creation. Remember you just might win a guest spot so come on...play along! While you are visiting the blog be sure to check out what the other DT members came up with this week.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
