A new challenge site!!

It is so quiet around kids are off to their grandparents for the weekend. I couldn't resist the opportunity to make a card or two while they're gone! I discovered a new challenge site called Just Us Girls...or JUGS for short! That just makes me laugh!! Anyway, they posted a sketch challenge today that I couldn't resist!

I have gotten some really cute Christmas stamps from Papertrey Ink, but this one called Vintage Ornaments has to be my favorite!

The ornaments are really glittery IRL...

Thanks for stopping by!
