Craft It Up & Link It Up #21 - Christmas

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! It's time for another Craft It Up & Link It Up challenge at Craftin Desert Divas. The theme this week is Christmas. Our sponsors are KaDoodle Bug Designs with a $15.00 gift card and Cardz TV with a set of CTV stamps.


For my Christmas card, I used paper from K & Company. The base was cut with a Sizzix Label Window Pop n Cuts die. The deer are Tim Holtz Reindeer Flight dies. I cut them once in black and then in music note cardstock, offsetting the black for a shadow. The matching Sizzix Butterfly and Label die was used for the pop out lables. The three wise men are from TH's Mini Holiday #4, as are the trees in the background. Merry Christmas is from TH's Old Fashioned Christmas and the 25 is from Mini Holidays #3.


I needed this to be flat (a rarity for me!!) enough to mail  so instead of ribbons or gems, I used the Sizzix Edge and Scroll die. The banner is a TH Tattered Banners die and Merry Christmas is from Mini Holidays #4.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Little Scrap Pieces - Anything Goes Linky
  2. DL.Art - December Linky
  3. Sunday Funday - December Linky
  4. Just B Creative Crazy - December Linky
  5. 2 Creative Chicks - Christmas/Winter
  6. An Inky Situation #20  - Cherry Cobbler
Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Craftin Desert Divas to see the amazing projects my talented design team sisters have created for today's challenge. Then link up your Christmas project...I can't wait to see what you create :)

    Thanks for the get well wishes..I really don't have the time to be sick, ugh! I am just now feeling like myself but not much energy. I am hoping tomorrow I will feel 100%. Just so much to do to get ready for Christmas~busy time for everyone then on top of things my daughter had to go out of town for 2 wks for work so I am putting in extra time watching Arya (which I love-don't get me wrong) but hard to get anything done. She is one BUSY toddler! LOL!
    Take care my friend!
