Peace*Love*Joy...Kylie's Twelve Days of Christmas Cards Challenge (Dec. 4 - 15th)

Hello,

A while back I received an invitation from Kylie, the energetic, super creative talent behind a number of challenge blogs, as well as the owner/designer of Happy Little Stampers. She's also my awesome *boss lady* at Addicted to Stamps and More and Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies Challenges.
  • The task: to create a Christmas card to inspire and encourage you (or, more aptly in my case, to encourage ME) to get our cards done...and to share what we've been designing.
  • My response: Heck, YES!  So here I am, with my card for Day 4 (December 7th) of her challenge: 


Inspiration came from two sources: the fabulous cards designed by Sarah (Sazzle Dazzle Crafts) to showcase the new Uniko release and the oh-so-warm-and-cozy photo over at The Card Concept Challenge #63



Wish I would have discovered this 'clean and layered design' earlier...quite easy to replicate. I'm going to try this with some other images, since 'someone' still has cards to make!!

Not only is inspiration galore happening until Dec. 15th, but Kylie's also extending a warm welcome for you to share your cards in the gallery here.  She has some fabulous sponsors lined up...wouldn't a little 'something special' in your Christmas stockings be wonderful?










Looking forward to seeing what Kylie and her guests have in store for us over the next few days AND to seeing what you'll be bringing to the festivities!!

Thank you for spending part of your day with me; your visit brings me joy!
