CCC Week 5 - be Thankful

IMG_4387

Happy New Year! It's the first day of 2012, and for me, it's perfect that the goal at Christmas Card Challenges is to make a thank you Holiday/ winter card.

I had lots to be thankful for in 2011. A healthy family, a new baby, a rewarding career, my own craft room....

If you'd like to join us at CCC, pls see the blog for more details and other DT examples. Remember that the challenge is optional, just make a winter or Christmas-oriented card.

It becomes tricky after the Holidays. I'm sure that even I will be a little tired of making Christmas cards during the Spring. I came across some Nativity and more spiritual stamps on sale though. I'm excited about making more religious cards.

Just keep thinking about how many cards you'll have by Summer's end! I thought I made so many Holiday cards, but I ran out! Hoping it won't happen this year!

For my card, I used Rin and Snowman from Sparkles Creations. Except I altered it and took out the snowman :). And I've been on a violet phase lately. i really need to stop coloring my images in purple because it's so hard to find Design Paper that would match! If you know of any recent DPs that come in purple, lemme know please!

See you soon! Enjoy today!

Happy New Year Rinne! Gorgeous card! I love the colours! I have the same problem as you with purple! I love purple but never seem to by purple DPs! I guess they don't make them often!

Hugs!
