Challenge #12--Christmas is Coming! or Winter is Here!--Sarah's Turn

Happy Boxing Day Everyone!!! I trust you are still full from turkey dinners and fun & fellowship with friends & family!!

Now on to the challenge!! This month at Sundays With Crissy the challenge is two-pronged. You can either choose the theme "Christmas is Coming" or "Winter is Here". Since Christmas is a thing of the past for 2010 and we are now looking forward to the New Year, I thought a wintery card would do well.

Here's my version of Crissy's Wags 'n Whiskers image "Zoe & Gemma's Snow Fun"!! I was going to put a "Let It Snow" sentiment on this card but just couldn't bring myself to do it. My city saw Old Man Winter come with full force in early December bringing with him about 3 feet of snow in a 48-hour period!! My daughter had 3 snow days off of school and much of the world around us stood still for a week!! It was very nice to have a slow pace for a change. I didn't have anywhere to be so for me is was also a holiday--a time to hunker down and relax...between snow shoveling sessions that is.

Now for my card...


And the inside, complete with gift card holder pocket...


Now it's not to late to join in the fun--you've got 6 whole days to upload your card following this month's themes!! To upload your card go HERE for instructions.

I am in awe to see that we've broken 100 entries already!! There is a great prize up for grabs this month & here's what Crissy has to say about it...

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 Random.org) 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 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! Zoe, owner of Make It Crafty, has also 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!

Here's what it looks like!! Well that's it for me for another month!! Thanks for stopping by Sundays With Crissy!! Have a wonderful, warm, and restful day!!

Hugs,

Sarah :o)
