Happy Monday all!!! What a busy weekend - trying to get everything ready because I am leaving on Friday- whoohoo!!! Off to Florida to spend time with friends, go on a fabulous scrapbook cruise, and get away from reality for awhile! I need it more than I could ever tell ya!!! But, I will be posting everyday while I am gone (I know, I am crazy, but it's done already, lol!) and there will be something cool going on for those of you who leave me comments while I am gone so make sure you check back for more details later this week! So, on to the card! Over the weekend, my SBS9 sistah Wendy hosted a challenge on her blog to create a holiday card with bling on it! (she actually hosted two, I will post the other one tomorrow!) Well, this kind of challenge is right up my alley - I mean, bling??!!! Looooovvvvvveeee it!!! I will tell ya, I decided to use my Cinnamon stickles so that is the one thing on this card that is not Su! So, I decided on Christmas as my holiday since I can make some for the upcoming season to send out and get somewhat of a head start! I used my Snow Swirl set for this card and I have to say, it is probably one of my favorite Christmas sets that Stampin' Up! has ever come out with - I just love all the swirls, and how pretty the stamps are. I really enjoyed making this card so thanks Wendy for the awesome challenge!! I will leave you with the recipe - I am off to keep organizing my scrap stuff for my trip - toodles!
