The Start of the Mad Christmas Rush

Do you realize that there are only 2.9 more months to Christmas? We really only have 2 months now to get all our Christmas cards made, addressed and mailed. So we need to take every opportunity to join in Christmas card challenges! Squigglefly is having a Christmas Challenge this week - it is Get Started on your Christmas Cards week .I used two Squigglefly images on my card: Kris Kringle by Marla Shega and Pam's Bows by Pamela Lehto. Marla's Santa is so realistic and detailed, and Pam's bows are absolutely wonderful. There are 5 bows for 2 dollars and some would work for weddings, some for Christmas and almost all of them would work for birthdays.


Hope you will join us in the challenge - anyone can enter with any image but to win, you must use an image from Squigglefly (there are plenty of free ones in the store).

Hugz to all!

  2. A beautiful Christmas card. I love how you made it with the gold Graphic 45 paper. I knew I should have gotten that paper pack when I was in St. Louis. :) I love the bow by Pam and I had not seen it yet. Now who's enabling? :)

  9. Oh my gosh this is so pretty. I love that snowman image. He looks absolutely jolly. The layout really makes him stand out on this card. The touches of gold are just perfect. And oh, by the way, I am very serious about February!!! My husband has been talking about hunting. I will write you an email later about it.
