Christmas Card Challenge Week #17

I hope you're all enjoying the weekend. Tonight Sears is having their Friends and Family sale, so we're getting our washer/dryer and fridge. Can't beat getting 30% off all Kenmore products and 20% on everything else.

I can't convince Brent on getting the green washer/dryer set that I posted about here. But it's okay...he honestly does more laundry than I do, so I can live with the white set. It's exciting yet scary buying so much all at once.

Here are my Christmas cards for this week. The first one is pretty simple, but didn't want to take away from the paper. I got the image from Wish RAK.

Paper: My Minds Eye
Stamps: Stampin Up
CTMH Buttons and Copics

Isn't this little guy just so cute?!? I also got him from Wish RAK. I keep hoping that the weather will be warm soon so that I can eat ice cream. :)

Paper: My Minds Eye
Stamps: Whipper Snapper, Sentiment is Stampin Up
Snowflake Punches, Crystal Stickles, PTI Buttons, and Copics

  1. These are so cute Sparkle. That Minds Eye paper is so cute. I've got a card but lost my memory card for my camera so I can't take a picture. Hopefully it will turn up soon.

  2. Hi Sparkle! Love the cards you share...that penguin is just funny he is eating an ice-cream cone. LOL

    I just wanted to pop in and wish you all the best with your move. It's an exciting time for sure. Can't wait to "see" your new home and maybe your new crafty space?? (hint, hint).

    I really enjoy your blog, even though I don't comment nearly enough. Thanks for all the sharing you do! You are very talented!

  3. Good luck with your move, and your appliance purchases..gotta love Kenmore.
    Beautiful the snowmen paper!

  6. They are both darling! I wasn't sure what I wanted to make today, and the penguin is giving me an idea what set to grab today! Happy shopping today. It is scary getting a lot of things at once, but it'll be so nice to have everything you need at a great price too!

  7. The Kenmores will last you a long time! I still have my Kenmore washer, dryer, and vacuum. They work almost like new still and are 8 years old. Your cards are darling, I love that MME paper! And that penguin is too cute!
