Happy Holidays Challenge....

Hello and Happy Wednesday Everyone! We are already going
through another week so fast! Today is my middle sons Birthday!
He turned 16 years old today! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JUSTON!
In a few weeks he'll be starting school as a Junior and I look
forward to all the adventures with him & High School!
My son went down to the DMV today to get his Official License.....
So if any of you live near by (WATCH OUT!) LOL He's a good
driver so no worries there! I just hope today is everything he hoped
for and more... He only wanted an Ipod and some T-shirts for his
16th birthday... And instead of a Birthday cake he asked for
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies! My mom likes to make that every
 year with Pumpkin Chocolate Chip bread... It's Juston's FAVORITE!!!
The rest of us don't like it as much as he does so it will be
made just for him today! He also asked for me to make a Chicken pasta
dish that he LOVES! So that will be for dinner tonight!
I guess I will show you what I made today! That is probably
why you came here in the first place! :o) Today happens to be
The Cricut Cardz Challenge! You are to make a HOLIDAY CARD!!!
CARTRIDGES YOU'D LIKE! I Had a hard time choosing this
one because you guys know I LOVE Fall/Halloween but I
Also LOVE Christmas time too! So see which one I chose!

Yup.... Christmas! I actually designed this shortly
after I made all those Layouts... It really got my juices flowing!

Card stock, Ink, Gems - Stampin' Up
Cartridges - George & Basic Shapes (Circles) Cut @ 2 & 2 1/2"
Sentimental (Center Shapes) Cut @ 2 3/4" & 3"
Snow Angels Imagine Art (Everything else)
Cut @ 2 3/4" (Flipped) (2x's)

I used a cotton ball from my Chalk container for her pom pom

The Stamp is from My Pink Stamper (Christmas Wishes)

All the shapes where flood filled with the designer paper
from the Snow Angel Cartridge... I just LOVE how this
turned out! I hope you guys like it to! Now that you've
seen what I created, head on over to Cricut Cardz Challenge
and play along with us! Make sure you check out the rest
of the design teams fabulous creations! I look forward
to seeing what you make! Thanks for stopping by!

I'm also putting this into the Challenge over at:
You are to make something for Christmas

Theresa, I would call this a "cozy" Christmas card. Aside from being beautiful, it makes me feel great to look at it. Really gorgeous. Happy Birthday again to your son.

What a fabulous image! This is such a peaceful card - perfect for the holiday season.
Your post has made me hungry! It sounds like Juston was well fed on his birthday! I hope things went well at the DMV for him. My daughter will be 17 next month and has still not gone for her licence!
