Winter Wonderland 1st challenge- O Christmas Tree


Yikes!!! I know your probably saying Christmas already? I came across a new blog called Winter Wonderland and they started their first challenge this week. It's totally Christmas inspired to help us to get a jump start on our Christmas projects. I love this idea seeing as how i'm a HUGE procrastinator when it comes to making my Christmas cards unfortunately. so i'm hoping this will help me i'm so excited to give it a try. Well this weeks theme is O' Christmas Tree and this is the card i came up with. It uses the stamp set Snow Swirled from SU! I hope you enjoy it. Thank you for stopping by and taking a look.

supplies used: stamps-snow swirled-SU!, ribbon-organdy red-ctmh, dp-ctmh, red sparkles-ctmh

What a gorgeous creation!!! It is so very elegant!!! I love the sparkles and the beautiful DP.

I think I should join in on this challenge! I made Christmas cards last year; but when our debit card was hijacked, I wasn't able to send them off:( Now, I need to muster the motivation to try again this year. Hopefully, my DH has learned not to go to unfamiliar sites and give our card info.

Hugs!
Carolyn

Hellooooo Rachel, so sorry for being such a baaaaad blogger or should I say bad comment leaver, I do visit everyday to see what you've been up to and I still maintain you have the cutest stamps :o) But I had to leave a comment on this card because it's absolutley gorgeous, I LOVE that stamp but it doesn't seem to be in our catalogue (UK) yet so I'll have to wait until it is. Everything about this card screams class from the paper to the ribbon to the Christmas tree, it really is lovely and I'm about to add the Christmas challenge site to my favorites.
Take care & keep smiling
