Joan's Gardens Challenge and MORE!

This week's Joan's Garden challenge is a fun one and when I saw it,
I knew exactly what I wanted to do!

This week's challenge is to:

  • Use Black and White Only
  • Christmas
  • Use a Frame
  • You must use a product sold at Joan's Gardens.  Also, mention that you are doing the card/project for Joan's Gardens Challenge. It would be nice if you would add this link to your post:

    During my last trip out to Joan's Gardens, I couldn't help but grab up this adorable silhouette die by Impression Obsession (DIE108-F). 
    Now as you know, no one should sled ride alone ...
    so I die cut it again and now this little guy has a buddy to have winter fun with! LOL!

    My frame was created using the largest Spellbinder Nestabilities 'Labels Fourteen' die. 
    I cut it out then actually used the 'negative' for my frame.

    With the computer problems I was having last week and my FUN but busy weekend, I'm late adding my card to this challenge.  Of course you have until THURSDAY to join in the fun so PLEASE check it out and join in!
