Christmas Card Challenge, Week 5

So this evening I sat down to make my weekly Christmas Card and came up with a card that I actually like a LOT.

You ass “why are you surprised"?”… Well with my sinus problems and sneezing fits all day, I was not so sure I would come up with anything at all. But an afternoon nap and a nice visit with the neighbors seemed to have helped.

I am showing you the 2nd version first. I think I like it a little better…

… than the first one, where I think I got a little carried away with the bling. You may need shades when you look at a close up.

  1. I like them both- even the one with extra bling. Great GREEN cards for this week, too! :)
