Krafty Snowman

It's another Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow and that means a new challenge.  This week we want to see vintage or shabby chic cards or other paper-crafted projects featuring KRAFT.

I am on a mission to get all my Christmas cards done by the end of November so this week I have made a shabby sort of primitive card to add to the stash.  Now I have 16 cards, which means only 14 or so to go.  The chances of meeting my timeline are slim to none because I have a horrible cold and do not feel like crafting - or doing anything else for that matter. I know - oh woe is me :)

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

Crafts and Me - Non Traditional Christmas Colours
Just Keep On Creating - Christmas Is Just Around The Corner
Little Red Wagon - Texturize It
Penny's Paper Crafty - Anything Goes
Craft Room Challenge - Punches & Die Cuts
Crafty Bloggers Network - Christmas Anything Goes
Forever Friends - Ribbon/Twine
The Pink Elephant Challenge - Punches & Dies
