Christmas Card Challenge!

Happy 1st Day of October!



I'm so super excited for this month.  I love the cooler (but not cold) weather, the leaves changing colors, the smells, the activities, the crafts, etc!!  Just love it!  Another thing that I love about October is that I get to listen to my Church's General Conference.  I'm in Utah right now visiting my in-laws as they prepare to go on a mission for our church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints).  We are about to sit down and watch/listen to the first session of the weekend.  If you would like to watch or listen with me you can click HERE. Such uplifting messages for our times and circumstances in this world.

Okay, I thought that NOW would be the perfect time to start on our Christmas cards if we haven't already so I would like to make it a CHALLENGE!!  Just link your card (or more than one card if you get inspired) below AND you will have the chance to win a MYSTERY BOX from me full of goodies!!  

Here is a Christmas Card I made using my new Biggie Christmas Sentiments Stamp Set.  Click HERE to see all my stamps and click HERE if you would like to purchase a set.  


I used a new Cricut Cartridge Called Creative Memories Sampler.  I cut the penguin out at 3 inches.  There are penguins on other cartridges, too, so just find one that you can use.  




 Last night my sister, Christy, and I attended the Mt. Timpanogas Temple here in Pleasant Grove, UT.  It was so beautiful and we had a blast taking pics outside of it.  I know this picture is burry but a random guy offered to take it and I had it on Manual Mode!  It was the only picture I got of us together.  



All right!  I cannot wait to see what Christmas Cards you come up with!!  Link them below!  If you do not have a blog just upload them to Photobucket or Flickr and use that URL.  Good luck!!

Remember that you can win a MYSTERY BOX of AWESOME goodies from me!!!  Just enter your card below!

  10. Hi there! We are watching today too from our home in Clinton, Utah. Just up the road a little from where you are. What a blessing it is that your in-laws will be able to serve together! I wish we could get together for lunch or something when you're here. Maybe next time!
    Hope you have a fabulous day with your family.
    Hugs,

  13. Oh I am so jealous! I miss Utah sooooo much. But when the DH finds work in California after two years on unemployment, you go. We hope to get back to Utah eventually though. Thank you for sharing your trip. I can live vicariously through you.
