Happy New Year!

Okay, I have switched gears a little, a different color combo and theme....

The challenge this week at Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge (#7 ) is a fantastic sketch and this is my rather loose interpretation of it. This is my first official holiday card for the year 2011 and I am so happy to get started. In an ideal world, I would like to play along with Sparkle's challenge every week, we'll see how it goes. Last year, I made many one-of-a-kind cards which was fun, but time consuming. Since I built a big perennial garden and a veggie garden last spring/summer, I will be wanting to more time out there once spring rolls around - seems like a looong way off right now - so I want to be a little more practical about my Christmas cards while still planning to get as many as possible done early. As for this one, I think it will be a good one to duplicate a few times when I get together to scrap with my girls and that will help me reach more goal of 100 cards faster!

Oh and I finally cracked open my Polar White Flowersoft - I love this stuff! I love the little bit extra this gives to my otherwise simple card!
There are still three spots available if you want to play Pay it Forward with me, just scroll down to my last post for the details.

Hope you are having a great weekend!
