Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being the beginning of the month it is time to introduce our new challenge hostess, which is Maryann Einam.

Today is Eat a Red Apple Day, so in the spirit of Christmas let’s create something that includes the color red.

For my card today I have used a Snowman image from Darcie's Country Folk. This is a stamp set I have had in my stash for a number of years.

For the layers of my card I used the Elizabeth Craft Designs Fitted Squares and Dotted Scallop Squares die sets.

For the inside of my card I created a pop up card using the Anita Frames Pop Up die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

The sentiments are from the Holiday Clear Stamp set.
