Punch Pals - Christmas Card Challenge

Your eyes are not deceiving you.  I've gone from Valentine's to Christmas.  Shortly after the New Year I stumbled upon a challenge thread on Splitcoast Stampers, a Christmas card challenge.  Avoid the holiday crunch by pledging to make a set amount of cards each month, up until November.  I committed to 6 cards a month, so if all goes as planned I should have 66 cards ready to go come December 1st.  In January I made six more of THIS card I had already posted, but at the time, had one made one.


For February I decided to make a card for all my nieces and nephews.  A shaker card using Punch Pals and the Folded Paper Frame technique.  It really made the shaker card a piece of cake!  The cello bag fits perfectly inside.  The sentiment was printed from the computer. 


Now wouldn't you know there is a challenge blog for Christmas cards year round?  Stef and Lauren over at Jingle Belles are giving us a different Christmas card challenge EACH WEEK!  Wow!  Well, since I did all  six of my cards at once I may not be participating each week, but boy what a great idea!  Thanks gals!

I know this post is short, I'm up posting late!  If you have any questions about this card, just give me a shout!
