Welcome to the first challenge of December. Since it is the first we are making Christmas Cards. I love making Christmas Cards. This is a great time of the year for family, friends, and the gift of giving. I love seeing the kids open gifts and the expressions they make. I also hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving and any other holiday that you celebrate. Our family has grown apart so much in the past years that we just have a little dinner with our kids and grand kids. Some years even that doesn't happen. Even though that I don't celebrate, I'm thankful everyday for something that has happened. I don't need one day of the year to do this.
Like you have seen twice before now we are doing Christmas Cards. Robyn is sponsoring the challenge this week. She let us choose anything in the category of Christmas to use. I picked out "Jolly Ole Santa." I thought this was a great image to use for this challenge. I have to Thank Robyn for letting me use this image. I had many ideas to do with it but with the holiday in the middle of the week, I was a little behind. I decided to stay with making a simpler card then my traditional ones. Even though it was a little easier to make, it still turned out very cute. If you would like to see more of her great images just click on this link Robyn's Fetish Store. Now let me tell you what she is giving to the lucky winner this week.
