*These Are For Tracy!*

This post and the three to follow are for my friend Tracy. Tracy has been doing a challenge on her blog each month... each month you have to make 5 Christmas cards using the same main image and following the criteria for the challenge that month. I thought it was a great idea back in January but never bothered to do anything with the challenge.

For some reason, last Friday, I decided that it was time for me to try the challenge.

I created these five cards using the Wild Card cartridge with my Cricut. I'm not thrilled with the card, but it's OK. It's not easy to make Christmas cards in April (although with the new snow on the ground and cold temperatures in Calgary it should be a little easier than it was a few days ago!).

In addition to my Cricut, I used some ribbon that I bought years ago for making Christmas tags, Bazzill Bling cardstock and a Dew Drop on each card.

I have actually completed ALL FOUR challenges that Tracy has issued since she started this in January... and I'll be posting them over the next few days. Yup, I have 20 Christmas cards done already!

This is what it looked like outside my door around 4 yesterday afternoon. We woke up to snow covered streets as the temperature dropped. We were 23* on Tuesday afternoon, which is warmer than it should be at this time of year. This morning it was -8* (-18* with the windchill). 23* is 73*F, -8* is 18*F and -18* is about 0*F

Sigh

Enjoy the rest of your day!
