DL.ART Thankful Thursday #218 ~ Christmas

Happy Thursday!! Are you all running around, trying to get ready for Christmas as much as I am??!! Sheesh, it's coming so fast!! It's time for a new Thankful Thursday Challenge at DL.ART and the theme this week is Christmas...or you could always substitute a Thank You card. If you used the code LF222, Diana will give you a 10% to shop at DL.ART!!


For my cards, I had to use this new CottageCutz Christmas Trailer Camping die. My family has camped all my life and now my parents have an RV, but I still couldn't resist this adorable die :)


The snowman, elf and the snow bank all come with the die. I added glitter to the snow for some shimmery sparkle.


This beautiful ribbon is Christmas Red from the Traditional Christmas Bundle. I also used Red Twine from Diana's shop.


This beautiful ribbon is Christmas Green from the Traditional Christmas Bundle. The tag and sentiment are from My Craft Spot (no longer in business).


 I am entering these in the following challenges:

1) Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Christmas
2) Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
3) Jo's Scrap Shack Funday Friday - Anything Goes


Look who wanted to be in the picture with the card...it's my sweet elf friend, Faith!! For those of you who remember Faith, she was sent to me by my dear friend, Diana :) For my new followers, you can meet Faith HERE and HERE.


Faith and Sammy are still going strong...so serious, in fact, they decided to adopt a pet together!! This is Rocky...they brought him home from Rocky Mountain National Park earlier this year :) I'm linking this up with Diana's Elf Antics!!

Thank you so much for stopping by!! Have a great day :)
