it's been too long...

It has been several weeks since I played along with the gals over at Jingle Belles.  I'm definitely outta sync with Christmas cards..more on that in a smidge.

This week the gals are joined by Sue who is asking for us to:

Deck the Halls

make a freestanding (2.5 x 3.5") xmas-themed Artist Trading Card
OR
add an ATC-sized element to your holiday card
OR
incorporate a playing card into your design
OR
use a recycled xmas card (or an element from
one!) on your (newly made) holiday card!

Although this post is too late for the Jingle Belle's challenge,  I remembered to load up my card in my Flickr account and link to JB that way:)

Here you go:


My center panel is the appropriate ATC dimensions..I loaded it up with a bunch of Crate goodness and stitching...lotsa stitching {check out that side tab}.   That sweet snowman is holding a toothpick flag, which is perfect for Paige's challenge over on the Create blog.

I gotta tell ya, this is the 2nd card I made for the ATC challenge.  My first one was downright lame...I still have it and will share it next week:)  Bummer that I cut into some delish Collage Press only to ick, hate how it turned out...grrrr...
