Good Morning Everyone!! Hope you have a very nice week and are enjoying your weekend. It's actually hasn't been to bad where I am. I did get some good news Friday. My fracture in my ankle is healing nicely that I'm aloud to take my boot off but have to go and buy an ankle brace because when they did my MRI they found that I had torn many ligaments around my ankle. That's why the ankle is so swollen. Then I get to start physical therapy to get it stronger and help those ligaments. This was the part that I wasn't happy about. If they do not get better they are sending me off to surgery. I really don't want to end the summer with something else wrapped on my ankle. That's my weekly update.

Our sponsor this week is The Cutting Cafe. I have to say that this store is one my favorite places to go and get images. When you go there they have many categories that you wouldn't even imagine. The shaker cards that they have at the top of the page are absolutely adorable. You will also see that they have new images for the month of July. They have a full catalog page that lists sets that they also carry. The set of birds that I used for my card is called, "Fun With Owls." There are two pages of different owls and two pages that had sentiments that went with the owls. I chose to use the reindeer owl with the sentiment, "Season's Greetings From OWL Of Us." I have my bird, sentiments and the beginning of Christmas cards. I don't think I did to bad with this challenge. So, here is the prize for our lucky winner.

3 SETS Of Images

I did make two of the owls and the one sentiment that went perfect with the reindeer. Before I tell you more about my card, let me show you what I came up with.

I don't think that it turned out that bad. I just loved this paper I found and used it. The colors were great together for a Christmas card. The reindeer embellishments are a little goofy but I thought they fit right in. The only thing I wish I did was make the antlers a little bit darker. With the bright colors that don't stand out as much as they used to but it is a home-made card. Here's that list of supplies.

Cardstock -- The Paper Studio
Paper -- DCWV
Sentiment -- Came With Set
Buttons and Reindeer -- Dress It Up

I can't believe that I'm at the end. This post was very easy to write. Well I hope everyone has a Great Week. Please come and join our challenge this week at The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog
