christmas card challenge #8...

did you all remember to turn back your clocks last night?  if not, make sure you do that before you head out this don't want to miss out on that extra hour of sleep.  everyone in my house looks forward to that. 

so i am back with the christmas card challenge for this month too.  i really liked the grid design of my scrapbook sketch i posted yesterday so i used that as inspiration and i used scraps from that same project.  all supplies are basic grey figgy pudding and pti. 

so here is your challenge, use this scrapbook sketch for inspiration for your card and use scraps somewhere on your card.  i know all of you have christmas scraps in your s-crapbox from last year lurking around....use them up!!  i am trying not to buy new christmas paper this year and use what i got.  one thing i have figured out, they always make more!!

when i use a colored cardstock i put a piece of this wausau cotton stationery inside and decorate it.  (i bought this at target a few years ago.)  it's easier to write on and easier for the recipient to read.  my eyes like it cuz they aren't what they use too...i think the eye doctor called it "ole lady eyes".  lol
anyway, i am off to eat breakfast, scott is making us blueberry pancakes with sausage this morning.  i froze about 9 quarts of blueberries in august so now we reap the rewards from all that work.  it's about 20' out, but i got fresh blueberries. 

be sure to link up your card to us below so we can all come over and leave you some love!!  have a fabulous sunday!!
One random winner from this Christmas Card challenge will win the Paper Trey Ink - Fillable Frames #9 stamp set and the co-ordinating Die. If you already have this set, then you can chose to get a 10$ PTI gift Certificate.
