Christmas Cards At Phindy's Place

This week it's a Christmas Card challenge on the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog. That's a safe and sure challenge for all of us, because you can always use a Christmas card or seventy or so.

For my image, I've used this adorable Winter Cutie called Shy Boy from the Phindy's Place Store. You really need to check out the Phindy Place Store because she's recently added some fabulous new images that will be perfect for Christmas or birthdays. I have actually had this image colored all week, but just haven't had time to get it into a card. Thank goodness I didn't have to make Thanksgiving dinner, because it gave me a few minutes today for some creativity.

I actually had an image colored and a card base put together. There was just one small problem. They didn't work together. On Tuesday, I went to Tupelo to spend the day with my sister hitting the craft stores and stocking up on embellishments and sale goodies. The papers I used for this card were from the DCWV Christmas Matstack that I found for 40% off at JoAnn's. Aren't they perfect with this image?

The sketch is from this week's Card Patterns challenge. Now let's see if I can convince myself to go color an image for a second entry for the challenge.
