MAKE A CHRISTMAS CARD


It's a Christmas Card and this time I chose flying Santa! My goodness, doesn't he appear to be having fun while all the deer look on! Squigglefly's Blogspot challenge this week is just that make a Christmas card with a Deer or the word Dear on it!
I have left the inside empty at this point - am thinking of creating 13 more of these cards with Flying Santa for all our grandkids and great grandkids.  That way we can put a special note to each and perhaps a little surprise!!!
So come on over to SQUIGGLEFLY BLOGSPOT CHALLENGE and enter a Christmas card - remember if you use a Squigglefly image you are in the running for the digi prizes!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Thanksgiving is drawing ever closer...are you having a family get together somewhere?  I always find that at this time of the year more of my friends enjoy a Thanksgiving card.  Guess it's because we are all getting older and still cherish the old traditions.

At the OUTLAWZ GREETINGS CHALLENGE we're just asking for a Happy Thanksgiving type card.  That leaves you a lot of leeway, now doesn't it?  So join us!
Our sponsors are:

CREATE A CARD FOR THE TROOPS - VETERAN'S DAY

My father was a veteran of WWII.  Served as a medic in the war and did a lot of driving of the upper staff.  Almost all of his brothers served as well as one sister.  My husband is also a veteran.  Funny thing happened when he and his 2 brothers signed into the draft together.   The twins ( my hubbie and his brother) are identical and they both signed into mechanical maintenance.  Instead they landed desk jobs for the Secret Service!  Their 3rd brother wanted to fly helicopters so he was chosen for heli maintenance.  So the flag doesn't fly too far away from the doors here.
Sponsor for this week is : Beansie Doodles

OH CHRISTMAS JOY!

GOOD MORNING PEEPS!  Today is my first post as a design team member at CREATIVE CARD CREW TEAM.  Wow, these girls are doing fabulous work, if I can only meet their approval!  BTW, if you are wondering why the jump over to CCC, it's because one of my favorite design teams is closing at the end of the year and I was invited by the owner to come over to CCC and just know I'll love it.  And previously I had to downsize from many of my design teams to keep up with my brother's medical needs. 

Our sponsors this fortnight are below along with the prizes
that are available. 
Prize: Surprise!
Prize: $10 Gift Voucher
And here's my card front and interior. 


If you might be looking for an awesome stamp set to try for your Christmas cards at a "VERY REASONABLE PRICE" check this one out.
