Anjillic Creations Challenge, Tuesday Taggers & 365 Day #150 challenge
A fellow PTIer (for you non PTI folks that stands for Papertrey Ink follower was hosting a challenge of Christmas In July. I thought it would be a good way to get a jump start on my Christmas card mojo. Her challenge is found HERE. I thought I would go ahead and try to combine challenges and so found a sketch challenge at 365Cards HERE. I also wanted to participate in yet another Papertrey Peeps challenge. This one was to do something that was out of the box for me. This was challenge #11 found HERE. My project also works for the Tuesday Taggers challenge found here of something Christmas as well as the Tuesday Throwdown challenge.
I rarely do anything that is CAS (Clean and simple). I much prefer to shabby things up... distress edges, ink up edges, lots of layers and patterns, etc. So this was a bit difficult for me to keep clean for sure. I did add a rubon and bling to the card so I am not sure that it is still considered simple but I did do my best.

I have been married to my best friend, James for over 20 years. I feel so entirely blessed to be his wife and the mother of his children. We have two wonderfully sweet boys. They are growing so fast and keep us on our toes. I love to scrapbook, stamp cards and gifts, cook and bake. I really like to pamper my guys. And I would love to some day live a sustainable life style on our own homestead. Cows, chickens, goats, OH MY. A garden with tomatoes, potatoes, and peppers and more. Oh, the dreams I have...
For now, I enjoy crafting my "art" out and reading aloud to all three guys. I so enjoy spending time with my family.
