More Challenges

I just love this sketch from Winter Wonderland this week so I used this as my first challenge of the card.  It's one I might even use again!

Then I also incorporated the following challenges with my card:

Charisma Cardz - Merry & Bright - I think I nailed that one - hee hee
Cutecard Thursday - Glitter Me Silly - Can you see the glitter???  Hard to miss huh?  LOL!
Creative Inspirations - New or Neglected - My Changito stamp is somewhat neglected and I'm kind of glad cuz I couldn't handle winter or christmas more then once a year so it's been awhile since I used him.

My First Christmas Cards

First of all, I must tell you that my inspiration for this card came from Sandi McIver's blog.  I just loved her card and was going to completely case it, including colors but I didn't have them. :-(  I think that's what really struck me about her card and also, I figured it would be a nice quick xmas card to make a few of.  Ok, when you case a card for time & convenience make sure you have the colors and stamp of what the original card really is!!  It must have taken me 3 freakin' hours to come up with the first one of these and it didn't turn out AT ALL what I wanted it to look like.  There is something different about each card and although they turned out okay, I hope my next batch of cards is a bit more successful!  Can you see the Twinklets that Pracer is standing on???
