Christmas in February??

I'll tell you it has felt like Christmastime with all this cold weather!  It's typical for February in Michigan and I've lived here all my life so I'm used to it, but OMG.  It's like enough already!!!

Anyways, here's the card I made.  Buying Christmas paper all year long has its advantages.  I HAD to use this sheet for a card background, it would not relent lol.

Just a few challenges:

  • A Bit More Time To Craft - #147 Anything Goes
  • A Perfect Time To Craft - #2-2022 Anything Goes
  • Classic Design Challenge - Anything Goes
  • As You Like It - Favorite Occasion ( my favorite occasion to create for without question is CHRISTMAS!  I just have so much fun making Christmas projects and I feel like people just kind of look at birthday cards but Christmas cards are appreciated!)
  • Winter Wonderland - All I Want For Christmas Is You 1/3

  • Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting!  Laters!!

    Java Merry Christmas!!

    Okay so I'm always sooooo last minute but here it is.  I managed to make TWO similar but different coffee Christmas cards that fit BOTH the BYHS sketch challenge and the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge!

    This first card, I really wanted to embrace the HEARTS theme, so I went with springy, Valentiney themed paper and a heart-shaped foam design on my coffee.

    Turner Syndrome Card Auction!!

    I am so excited to be participating in the Turner Syndrome Card Auction!  

    Welcome to the Turner Syndrome Awareness Card Auction!  This is a collaborative Card Auction for the benefit of the Turner Syndrome Foundation, which operates solely on donations.  With Covid the last couple of years have been very difficult for the Turner Syndrome Foundation since most of their big fundraisers are held as "in-person" events and the pandemic has put all of that on hold.  The TS Foundation provides support, guidance and educational programs for families impacted by Turner Syndrome.  TS is a genetic disorder where a female is born missing part or all of her second X chromosome leaving her with lifelong medical issues and learning disabilities.

    If you see a card that you love, please bid with your heart!

    Here is a link to the Turner Syndrome Foundation if you would like to learn more about TS:

    I have donated 12 cards to the auction, but there are hundreds of beautiful pieces of artwork up for auction!  I've also made a Thank You card to send to each winning bid for my cards.

    I'm entering the thank you card in some challenges to hopefully help raise awareness and draw attention to the auction!

    Please be sure to visit the auction by clicking this link and bidding on a card or two.  Thank you so much for helping to support this great cause.  Laters!!
