*Tracy's Christmas Card Challenge*

I don't know how I  missed the post yesterday, but I was thinking that Tracy should have had her February Christmas Card Challenge posted this week.  I took a boo at her blog and sure enough, it was there.  I'm not honestly sure how I missed it.

I commented on the post and told her that I hoped to get to play along this month.  And instead of sitting here thinking I should be crafting, I got out the colours that she challenged us to use (she was inspired by the colours of the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver) and started to play
These are my five cards, all lined up in a row....

And a shot of one, a little more up close and personal.
Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Brilliant Blue, Green Galore
*Images:  Inkadinkadoo
*Ink:  Stampin' Up! Brilliant Blue
*Tools:  Big Shot; Snowflakes Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
*Embellishments:  Stampin' Up! sheer ribbon

These were quick and easy to throw together and honestly, I really really like them!

Thanks to Shannon who gave me the stamp just before Christmas as a thank you from her cat Missie for going over and feeding her while Shannon and Ian were away.  She knows my love of snowmen and swirls!!

I had thought about adding a sentiment on the right side instead of the ribbon, but decided against it since the main image already says "Let It Snow"

Let's hope we don't get any more snow for several more months (like 9!)

In other news, Bruce is feeling a lot of pain today in his arm and wrist.  Not sure why he's hurting so much more.  I'm worried about him.  He is now out of the good pain killer (that wasn't dulling the pain as much as hoped) and is now taking Tylenol 3s....  if things don't improve I think we'll head to the hospital tonight to get his arm checked out just in case they focussed on his wrist and missed a break in the arm (which is where the pain is today).  Poor guy....
