Now that I have 90% of my shopping done, I was able to take time out and make a card or two.  Some folks meditate to relax, some jog, I scrap!!

I loved this poem when I saw it and knew it had to go on a card!  The sketch challenge is from Mojo Monday, and the color inspiration is WHITE from Creative Inspirations.
I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder, Mistletoe Kisses; ribbon from Magic Scraps; tree brads and plastic snowflakes(?) ; Bazzill cardstock for framing; and the delightful poem I printed from the internet.

This card will be entered in the following challenges:
Stamptacular (Blue, Blue, Christmas))
City Crafter (Let it Snow)
Delightful Challenges (Embossing)
If the Shoe Fits (Texture)
Pixie Dust (Snow)
Simon Says Stamps (Let it Snow)
Bugaboo (Winter Wonderland)
Stamps R Us (Holiday)
Wags and Whiskers (Snowflakes)
Penny's Paper Crafts (Merry Christmas)
Incy Wincy (Non-traditional Colors)
Critter Sketch Challenge (NO Pattern Paper)
PollyCraft Monday Challenge (White)
