Ultimate Card Showdown Round #3 Yipppeee!!!



** note ** I have removed the image of this because it was just requested by Scrapbook Trends for their Christmas Cards Idea Book!! Yeah!! Thanks Laura & Kazan!
I'm absolutely thrilled to have moved to the next round of the Ultimate Card Showdown at 2 Sketches 4 You!!!!! It's always so fun to work with the sketches that Laura and Kazan showcase and it is just the FUNNEST ever to be able to win some prizes, too! I thought this round's sketch was so fun. As soon as I saw it I thought lollipop. Sooooooo, with this round's sketch it is Christmas in June for me. I'm so happy to have my first Christmas card done for this year. I'm a notorious Christmas procrastinator, so it really is a huge deal for me to be getting a jump start on this. Normally, I don't get around to doing anything for Christmas until the end of November. It seems fitting to have a card for this round be a Christmas card, since it was just last Christmas that I got bit by the card bug. I got a wild hair to create my Christmas cards and I'm so glad I did. Every time I make a card I feel happy. I hope I've been able to spread a little joy, too.
