Here a Challenge, there a Challenge!


Frosty & Sparkly!
Some glitter shows other disappears. The big blank spot on the upper righthand corner is a big sparkly snowflake. Sorry for the poor pix!

This is a Christmas card for a lovely couple we are just getting to know!

Many challenges inspired this one...
1. Papertake Weekly~(a recipe) 1 ribbon, two rectangles (the DP bg & the focal panel) & 3 small round embellies (bling) 2. CCEE~shades of blue & brads. 3. Cute Card Thursday~hearts. 4. Stamp Something~snow. 5. Dutch Dare~scalloped edge. 6. Lilas & Lupines RAK challenge~snow! Whew, what fun!

Here's what the two younger kiddos were doing while I was stamping! Setting up our beloved Nativity to symbolize the birth of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ!
God's grace & redemption in human form. We serve such an awesome God!
Blessings!!
