They are a monthly Christmas card challenge – you are invited to come and see what it is all about by clicking the link above!

Here is my debut card as part of the team:

We were asked to case Steph’s  card – here it is:


I made my card with some designer paper from in my scraps – yes, I know I am using a lot of scraps lately!! But I have A LOT to use so that is good.  I also used some shiny silver paper to diecut some snowflakes from Simon Says Stamp – they are the Eliza snowflake, the Kate snowflake and the MaryAnne snowflake  and I also cut a strip of the shiny paper to put by the silver trim that I had in my stash along with the silver and white twine I used!! The joy stamp is from SU! – not sure of the name of the set!!

I am happy that this card also fits these challenges:

    Hi Taunya!
    I love the card you made here, really lovely. And your link worked fine if it was this card you commented about. Sometimes Mr Linky seems to have a little think before adding the thumbnail – I find that doing a screen refresh is the best way to check. But, always feel free to shout!

    Like the shiny snowflakes. Definitely could use some of the coolness of snowflakes about now here in Central TX where it is 100+. We have had snow here before. Last yr Daisy my dog loved making snowangels in the backyard and I photographed her and made a scrapbook layout of it.
