Preparing For Christmas

 3 challenges inspired this Christmas card...

Jingle Belles // #JB2304 ...A year round Christmas challenge!!  The challenge...use embossing on your card!  I decided to use two embossing folders!!  Thanks to Jingle Belles for keeping me on track for getting my Christmas card finished without a last minute race to complete them.  Y'all should play along too and have a nice stash on hand by Christmas card sending time.


Retro Rubber Challenge // #rrcb200 ...A sketch challenge!!  With a twist...gotta use a stamp that is over a year old!!  My sentiment stamp is from Stampin Up's Come to Bethleham stamp set that is from back in 2012. embossing folders are over a year old too!!

The Paper Players // #PP627 ...A color challenge!!  I used the wrong color of pink on the first card that I made for this challenge!  Got it right this time!!  The color combo for this challenge is Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, Petal Pink, and So Saffron.
