Holly Fairy

The challenge this week at Phindy's Place is CHRISTMAS and the timing is perfect since Christmas is only a little more than 5 weeks away - sorry but I had to say it - so the deadline for sending cards is looming fast.  Of course the deadlines for shopping, decorating and baking are too - oh my!

You don't have to use a Phindy's image but there are so many wonderful images that would be appropriate for your Christmas cards in her store, that you should rush right over and pick up a few. Besides, if you do use a Phindy image, you can follow the instructions under the challenge rules to enter twice for more chances to win one of the two prizes available.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Charisma Cardz - Lace & Pearls
Crimbo Crackers - Make it Sparkle (must be Christmas)
Shelly's Images - Anything Goes
Ruby's Rainbow.  - Anything with Wings
Truly Scrumptious - Christmas with Pearls or Vintage

  1. Cec, I had to stop looking at the DT cards when I got to this and come over and tell you how incredibly beautiful this is. Love the colors, coloring and the paper. It looks like it should be an ornament on a tree.
