"Merry" for Jingle Belles

 Happy Monday! Thanks for visiting while I was out! I had a fabulous weekend at Thunder Bay's first Crop & Create Crop. Just the girls and the scrappin' supplies - pure bliss!!! We rented rooms at the hotel even though the venue was in our hometown just to make the experience that much sweeter!  We scrapped to our heart's content, then stayed up sharing stories and loads of laughs for half the night. I've come home super inspired and itching to get back in the scrap room but alas, the real world was waiting for me first thing this morning. What a great weekend it was and I do have some stuff to share...

This card was made for a few challenges:

Jingle Belles - I'm dreaming of a pink Christmas (and a cure!) - the fabulous gals over at Jingle Belles are donating $4 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for every card shared during this challenge - what a wonderful idea! 

* Summer's Colour Suite for September was one of the challenges at the crop (see inspiration photo below) - this was a different colour combo for me. I love putting pink and green together, but would not have thought to use a bright pink and would never have chose beige. This one stretched me for sure, but I love the results!

*Simon Says Stamp - Christmas

*Christmas Card Challenges - Christmas/Winter with the option of flowers

and a peek at the inside:

Have a fantastic week!
