This Crafty Sentiments challenge is for all of you folks who like to get a head start on your Christmas cards. I admire you, but I can barely get my act together on December 1st, let along in July!
I'm on vacation right now, so I'm crafting in the morning rather than my usual night routine. My hands were so shakey as I was cutting out this CSDimage, Cold Christmas, I decided I really need to cut back my coffee consumption! Yikes! Once I drank a liter of water, I was better! I decided to use the sketch from the Friday Sketch Challenge for my card. The partial circles are cut from glitter paper, there's some WInk of Stella on the tree branched, in the snow, and on the white part of her clothing. The sentiment is from PTI; the tree is IO, and the stitched flag is from Lil' Inkers.
Crafty Sentiments is offering a freebie for you to use to join the challenge, but you need to request it by the 19th. Stop by the challenge blog for more details and see what the DT is up to! This week's winner chooses 3 digis from the Crafty Sentiments shop!

On another note, I can finally announce I have been invited to be on the Southern Girls Challenge Design Team. The challenge started in New Zealand, and the current DT is made up of crafters - across the globe. There are two DTs, with new challenges posted two Thursdays a month, so that means one monthly card for me. It has been fun becoming acquainted with the other gals and learning some slang from "down under". Oy, Mate!! I hope you'll stop by the Southern Girls Challenge blog and play along.
