Joan's Gardens Challenge #41

Hello all!  Are you ready for the weekend?
They are saying it's going to be in the 70's here in NE Ohio and that means this will probably be my last chance to get the remainder of my outside work done before the snow flies!  So, just in case I don't get any crafting time in over the weekend, I wanted to be sure and create for one of my favorite challenges tonight!

Here's a card I 'quickly' created for the challenge at Joan's Gardens.  This week is a very easy challenge ... use Red, White & Green on your card!  It doesn't get  much easier than that!

I actually was able to use up some of the red & green scraps I had laying around on my crafting table from all the creations I made for last week's craft show!  

Here are the items used on this card (those in red were purchased at Joan's Gardens) . . .
  • Cheery Lynn Designs DL143 -Ornamental Wreath & Bow
  • Cheery Lynn Designs B186 Merry Christmas Set 
  • Cheery Lynn Designs B184 Holly Corner 
  • Cuttlebug EF 
  • Red Stickles 
  • Christmas Red and Green cardstock
  • White cardstock
I hope you'll come join in the fun at Joan's Gardens and be sure to check out all the awesome products she has available at her store.

Here are a few qualifying challenges I'd also like to enter into:
Crafty Catz Challenge - Anything Goes
Southern Girls Challenge - Christmas Projects

 Well that's it for me tonight!  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Darlene, beautiful card. Sometimes it is fun just to create a simple yet stunning card. Great job.

We are working outside today too. We are putting up our Christmas lights, etc while this weather is nice and closing the pond.

Thanks for joining us at Joan's Gardens for our weekly challenge.f
