Scandinavian Christmas

Yep, I'm a woman on a mission.  Can you believe I am almost halfway to my Christmas card goal?  When I create a card I almost always make four.  I have a hard enough time deciding what card goes to which person.  If I had ALL different designs...well I don't need that kind of stress!  Hee!  Hee!

The sketch I used today comes from the ladies at Freshly Made Sketches.  Rita designed this one.

The other challenge I was very excited to participate in is jingle belles, "Scandinavian Christmas."  Stephanie and Lauren are two great gals helping us all get those Christmas cards done!

I can't tell you how many times I changed this card.  I think I changed every single element at least once before it came to this.  Those CAS designs are tough!  I always want to add MORE!

So, thanks for stopping by today.  I'm not really sure what challenges I'll be doing tomorrow.  I still need to make more Valentine's Day cards.  If I can't find a challenge that fits I may have to go solo!


  1. I hear you re: those CAS card!! They are killers LOL! Spend more time on them than other cards as a slight shift in the placement of an element can totally change thd card LOL!

    Love the red and white and well done with the sketch! Smart girl making 4 of a king each time :)

  2. Beautiful card Shelley! I can't believe you've got half of your cards done already!!! I can't even stomach the thoughts!!!! Love the colours on this card and love that rick rack border! Great colours! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

  5. i'm so pleased to hear someone else say they not only sometimes change *EVERYTHING*, they also have a hard time knowing when a C&S card is DONE!!! not... i hasten to say... that anyone would GUESS that looking at this gorgeous card, which rocks ALL it's criteria in a big big way; but it's nice of you to say so, lol!!! absolutely ♥LOVE♥ this, and thrilled for JINGLE BELLES to have been involved in any way with inspiring it!
