Merry Christmas

Hi everyone,
It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week Silke Ledlow continues to bring us the challenges for August.

Our challenge this week is a sketch challenge … have I told you before that I love sketch challenges LOL!


This week I decided to create a Christmas card, it is getting about that time that we need to be starting thinking about getting some made unless you want the mad dash. It’s the 25th today so that means there is only 4 months to Christmas!

My sister when she sees this online will be thinking this card is for her, as she loves elephants. Well it might be but then maybe it won’t cause I have 6 different Christmas elephant images by Wild Rose Studio, plus a few others from another company which I purchased just before Christmas last year. Maybe she can request the one she likes the best closer to December Winking smile.

The longest part of making this card was finding the holly leaves that I added to my card as embellishments. I knew I had purchased several packages of these late last year which I had put in a safe place …. but everywhere I looked I couldn’t find them. Obviously I finally did find them or it wouldn’t be on my card.

Here is the inside of my card, I just added a sentiment and a stripe of designer paper that I used on the front of my card.
