It's Christmas In May
Your eyes aren't playing tricks on you - it really is Christmas in May. Or at least, that is what it is at Phindy's Place challenge blog this week. We want you to make CHRISTMAS cards this week and what a great excuse that is to get a head start on your holiday cards. I think I have at least 6 made so far but if I don't keep at it, I will end up short when it is time to get them in the mail.
You don't have to use a Phindy image but if you do you can enter twice. There are lots of great Christmas-themed images in her store so if you don't have one, just pop over and pick some up.
I dug into my scrap box to make this card and love how all these bits and pieces came together. I have two boxes, one for patterned paper and one for card stock scraps and they are starting to get pretty full so I must endeavor to go there first and not to cut into a new piece unless it is absolutely necessary.
I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Waste Not Wednesday - Use Your Forgotten Stuff (the papers)
Shopping Our Stash - Use 3 or more Designer Papers
