Just a quick post to end the year!! Here are four cards I made for Cards for Canadian Soldiers--a new organization I found that sends cards to Canadian Troops serving overseas. The cards are left blank on the inside so that the soldiers can send their own greetings to their loved ones back home.

Sundays With Crissy--Challenge #12--Christmas is Coming OR Winter is Here!!

Happy Boxing Day Everyone!!!!! I trust you all had a nice Christmas! I had a wonderful time with my in-laws in Toronto and ate way too much!!! Thanks guys for a lovely time of fellowship & food!!!

Now onto the challenge...

This month at Sundays With Crissy the theme is two-pronged. You can either choose Christmas is Coming or Winter is Here!! Seeing as my post was scheduled for after Christmas, I chose to do "Winter is Here"!! I used the Crissy's digi image from Wags 'n Whiskers called "Zoe & Gemma's Snow Fun"! You can find this sweet image HERE!!

I debated and almost put a "Let It Snow" sentiment on my card but I have had enough snow for the rest of the winter!! In early December we got 3 feet of snow in a 48-hour period so my "snow-quota" is more than full. Whether Old Man Winter thinks so I am not sure but I wish he would come clean up his mess LOL!!

Here is my card...

I added some crushed glass to the snow around the bottom of the snowman and the ground--sorry it's hard to see but IRL in looks real purdy!! And now the inside, complete with a pocket for a gift card...

I gotta say I am super impressed with how many entries there are already this month over on our blog--you all really uploaded some wonderful creations!!! There are 6 more days left to add your own card or project--->Go HERE to Crissy's post to find out how to upload!!

Now here's a note from Crissy about this month's prize draw:

"I'm going to do something a little different for blog candy with this month's challenge! In the spirit of Christmas and giving, I am going to give away one digital image to the first 12 players! AND I am opening up the contest to include EVERYONE (not just for those using one of my images)!! So if you are one of the first twelve players to link up your Christmas/winter card on here, you will get your choice of one of my digital images from either Whimsy or Squigglefly! How fun is that!
Now to keep it fair, you must make a card specifically for this challenge. Any cards that are "back-linked" will not qualify.
And, if you don't make it in the race for top twelve, you can still have a chance to win at the end of this month. I'll still draw a name (using from the participants, and that lucky person will get to choose 2 images of their choice from my collection.
So what are you waiting for!! Ready, set, get crafting!!"

It's now too late to be one of the first twelve players, but it isn't too late to get in on the final draw for two free digis! However, Zoe owner of Make It Crafty, has added an additional surprize for the winner! She is contributing her brand new digital image "Stairway to Heaven". It is a background digital stamp that would compliment Crissy's images Beautifully!

I entered my card in the the Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge--Snowflakes as well!!

Well that's it for me!! Thanks for popping by today!!
