Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge #28

Hi Friends! It's that time again. . .you know what Monday is all about right? Well, if you don't . . .it's Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge! Yup! And. . this week's it's Debbie of the Paper Garden turn to host our challenge! Yipee! Debbie's challenge is a sketch challenge! There are 2 additional requirements to the sketch. . .one is to emboss the top half of the card and use designer paper to the bottom half as shown on my card.

Honestly, this card almost didn't happen. I procrastinated and the plan was to make this card after dinner. Well, after dinner last night I was so sleepy that I thought. . .oh, I'll just make it tomorrow. Then I remembered that it's my daughter's school day again and well, I won't be home in the morning. Uggh!

My life schedule is sort of messed up because of my having to bring my daughter to school. Many of the things I normally do in the morning now have to be done later in the afternoon or evening. It's been throwing my schedule off a bit. I usually will comment blogs and such or blog but now, I have to plan ahead or wait until I get home. It's all good. . .I'll get accustomed to it soon enough.

Nothing much to my card. I colored my image with Copic Markers and added snowflake embellishments to the bows. That's basically it.



Anyway. . .be sure to stop by the Christmas Stampin All Year Long blog site and check out all the cute cards created by the design team.

Hope you'll stop by and play along this week!

Have a great day, everyone!!

Very pretty! Such a cute image, I love the colors that you used instead of the traditional red & green.

Awww...sooo PRETTY! Love your beautiful color combo Maria! This totally makes me want winter to come. I just LOVE the snow and sledding with the girls. Or sittin' inside with a cup of cocoa watching the snow fall...not sitting inside with the AC cause it's 104 degrees out, like we're doing now! (my craft room doesn't have ac either! :( Whaaa!) LOL. Love your cute snowflake elements on this card too. Great job!

Beautiful card lady! I know what you mean about the photos. I was a slacker too. It sounds like we were in the exact same mood last week! And then it's heck trying to catch up. And on top of that I'm going to visit my nephew this weekend so that means I won't have my normal two days at home to get stuff done. SIGH. Ohwell. We will do better when we can!
