Basic Grey meets Roses on Paper Challenge

This is my first Basic Grey Challenge and my first Roses on Paper Challenge. I am so excited to be playing along with such fun challenges! This card was a hoot to make! The theme over at the Basic Grey Challenge blog this week was "Going Green!" You had to reuse something old! I used 2 old things on this card! On the bottom left of the card, I used some tiny ornaments from my table top tree. Then on the background of Charlie you will see snowflakes. I used a snowflake scrap I had laying around from a previous card, and sponged around it to create the snowy background.

The Roses on Paper challenge this week was a sketch challenge. You can see the sketch HERE! This is a brand new challenge blog, and I am so glad I found it (thanks to Jeanette's blog)! I had so much fun playing with their sketch!

This card is the Christmas card that I made for my hubby! I can't wait for him to open it (I can post this here....because I don't think he ever checks my blog....hee hee!) This Whiff of Joy stamp so reminds me of my hubby...it looks just like him when he was a little boy!

And here's a close up of Charlie! I colored him with my Copics! Added fun flock to his hat, wrists, and belly. Used stickles on the bow of the present that Charlie is holding. Also used glossy accents on the apples in the scene. All products were bought from Loreen at Wish On A Scrap!
And last but not least is the inside of the card! Gotta love those corner punches! I told you I will probably use them on all of my cards now! Ha ha! The sentiments reads "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," the lighting really didn't want to work well with this pictures. I did not decorate the left side of the card, as I used that to write a letter to my hubby!

Tonight we are off to Christmas Eve mass....it's my absolutel FAVORITE mass of the year!!! I so can't wait for 6 PM to roll around! Our choir sings Christmas carols an hour before church starts, and the mass is just so beautiful! After church we are off to my Grandparents house, can't wait to go and eat some of Grandma's famous cut-out cookies, no one makes them like Grandma does! Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas Eve!
