(1) 12 Months of Christmas Link-Up challenge blog #55 where themes are 'always Christmas'; there is an optional twist for plaids...which I might try before the end of the month...this card is just for a general Christmas card share


(2) Jingle Belles challenge blog newest theme/prompt started 19 july 2019 with a photo. Here are the link and inspirational pic...


Interpretation= my card has lots of white and silver with the hints of color from the red that made a visual impression on me. again, another link opportunity--

(3) Shopping Our Stash Weekly challenge blog #400 theme is Christmas in July

my card is using old white card scrap for the base; 1 1/2 year old purchased metallic gift tag; old glitter gem dots...all from my stash...the Martha Stewart paper was a recent purchase through Amazon using a gift card received for my birthday! :)

(4) Facebook group Paper, Paper, Paper & Design Team Calls= sharing group for crafting bloggers

A few more scanned photos:

I haven't taken time to count how many I've made since January but I do know the Christmas cards are stacking up whereas Thanksgiving ones are just that--one...sigh....Going to have switch supplies and get some harvest theme stuff out.
