Christmas Card Challenge Week #47

I have joined the pompom bandwagon! I used up some scraps lying around to make this card. Baking and making candy was never a holiday tradition for us. My mom usually bought a pumpkin pie and her favorite was key lime, so she would buy one of those too. She hated pumpkin, lol...but I could eat a whole one if you let me. :) Not at one time, lol...but give me 4 days and it'd be gone. This weeks challenge is to use some kind of cooked/baked holiday goodie. Candy is good for this challenge too!

Paper: Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses
Stamps: Whiff of Joy, sentiment is Amuse
Copics, Nestabilities, Snowflake Punches, PTI Buttons, Crystal Stickles, Rhinestones, MS Border Punch, and Pompom Ribbon


Mr. Linky Note: Please link directly to the blog post or gallery page where we can view/comment on your creation and not just the generic link to your blog. To get the full url, click the title of your blog post (which will load a page that has just that post on it), then copy and paste the URL into the Mr. Linky form. Thanks and please still post a comment so I know you added a card!

Everyone have a great Sunday. I'm hoping to take Scott and Brent out to Dim Sum. Besides that, it'll be laundry and grocery shopping!

  12. Darling card! I'm loving all these new border punches you've been using on your cards too. The pompoms are darling, I really need to find someone that carries them around here since I haven't seen them while simply perusing. Oh, and the girls loved the Lilo and stitch clip on your other post ^_~ Have a lovely Sunday, I'm hoping to get to play in this challenge tonight!
