2011 Christmas Card Challenge #1

Well how about that?! Here I am starting my Christmas cards for 2011 and you can too, if you play along each week with Sparkle and her elves. I dabbled a bit here and there over the last year with the challenges and I tell you what...my cards for the year were completed and ready to mail at the end of November. Gotta love that!! Anyway...this week, the challenge is to create a monochromatic card.

 I chose gold as my color and yes, I added a pop of red. I couldn't help myself. This cute little deer needed some bling and it was screaming to be red!  I just love that sassy deer. She is from a stamp set I WON from GinaK Designs!

I've not been blogging because I'm still working on projects for the Christmas Boutique. It's this Saturday, so I'm wrapping things up now. I trust everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving...mine was great. There were A LOT of people in my house!! Whew! Folks were everywhere...but everyone was well fed and we all had a good time and that is what's most important. I'm looking forward to visiting your blogs to see what you've been up to....Christmas really is right around the corner...

Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate it, cuz' I know how busy you are! Until next time...Be well friends.
