Just a regular post...

Hi guys!  Just stopping in today to share another Christmas card for the stash this year:


I love this image!  It is part of the Snowman Set 02 from Bugaboo.  This is the same set that the card from my previous post comes from.  I said there that when Jodie released this set, I knew I had to have it, and this image is why!  Such a sweet image, I think it would even work for a Valentine's card in a few months!  This is colored with alcohol markers in traditional Christmas colors.  The designer paper comes from the Season's Greetings 6x6 paper pad from Love, Nicole.  The red cardstock scalloped circles come from a Recollections red paper collection.  The edges of my white card base were distressed with Candied Apple Oxide Ink.

Challenges:

12 Months of Christmas Link Up #36:  ATG or optional "Christmas cupcakes" theme
Sparkles Christmas #83:  Snowman/men
Animal Friends #57:  ATG with an animal
Happy Little Stampers:  ATG with dies (I used Spellbinders)
Love to Scrap #104:  Winter Wonderland
Tuesday Throwdown #371:  Christmas Scene
A Gem of a Challenge #209:  ATG Christmas
Christmas Card Throwdown:  Pick a previous challenge from 2012 or 2013 (I picked the June 2012 theme challenge of snowmen)
Di's Digi Design challenge:  Winter Holidays
Jingle Belles:  2017 Holiday Wrap Up
Outlawz Paper A La Mode:  Christmas card
Muse Christmas Visions #90:  ATG Christmas
Happy Little Stampers Christmas:  ATG or optional "stencils" theme

*Whew*, I'd better get to linking up to all these challenges!  Thanks for stopping by, and God Bless!

CHNC Extra December DT Post

Howdy everybody!  I am here to share my card for the CHNC Extra DT post for December:


 As usual, our images are provided by Bugaboo, and this one is part of the Snowman Set 02SO CUTE!  When Jodie released this set, I KNEW I had to have it.  I cannot resist adorable snowmen!  It looks like Snowy and his little bird buddy are discussing something important, doesn't it?

Well, I've tried to avoid it, but I have some bad news for you.  This will be the last challenge at CHNC Extra.  Hazel has decided to close up shop for personal reasons, which she explains in the CHNC Extra blog post.  Don't worry though, she isn't disappearing altogether; she will still be doing her weekly challenge that is also anything goes Christmas.  You can find that here.  She is also on a few design teams out there in blogland, so she will still be around.  I have enjoyed my time being on her team, and I will surely be participating in her weekly challenge when I can!

Challenges:

12 Months of Christmas Link Up #36:  ATG or optional "Christmas cupcakes" theme
Sparkles Christmas #83:  Snowman/men
Love to Scrap #104:  Winter Wonderland
Di's Digi Challenge:  Winter Holidays
Jingle Belles:  Holiday Wrap-Up


Thanks for stopping by, and take care. 

God Bless!
