New Challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters . . .

But before all the baking/cooking begins, I'd like to share with you the card I made for the new challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters.

Our challenge this time around is to make/use something

on your card/project.

I've been trying to find time to create some handmade flowers with my Heartfelt Creations Christmas Poinsettia PreCut Set and coordinating SunKissed Fleur Die and so today's the day.  What do you think?

My flower is really RED even though it looks kind of orange in the photo.
I really need to take a few hours and make more of these flowers ... it's really the only embellishment my card needs I think.

I've got to make this a quick post but I'm really glad you stopped by today and I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun.  I can't wait to be inspired by your 'handmade' ideas.  Right now I can use all the inspiration I can find ...

A few additional challenges:
Craft-room Challenge - Vintage Christmas
Sweet Stamps #145 - The Holidays
Songbird Challenge - Die Another Day 

Remember, you have until Dec. 8th to play our challenge.
Hope to see you there!
As always ...
