Happy Friday!!  It's time for another challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack.  As always, we are now an Anything Goes challenge and our sponsors for this week are Little Blue Button Stamps. 

And here is my card for your inspiration:

I'm a firm believer in creating Christmas cards all year long so I'm not scrambling come December.  Well, I usually have a few left to make, but at least the large bulk of my cards are already finished by then.  This year, I'm already behind and since I had this image already printed and sitting on my desk I decided to go with Christmas.  Sorry!  I know we are all ready for warmer weather and thoughts of spring.

This is the 2nd Christmas card I've seen today, so there are other crafters who are working ahead for the big card giving at Christmas time. And I best squeeze in some time myself. The bold reds and greenery are striking! You've made a wonderful card and thanks for linking it to #368 for PPCC blog. Becca=DT
