City Crafter Challenge....

It is such a busy time of the year!  Isn't it!
I have been busy trying to make my Christmas cards.
I have all year to make them, but no I wait till the last minute..

Not to mention all the shopping I still need to do!

I got out today to try to get caught up on my shopping,
but ended up at not 1 but 2 different craft stores..
I got some pretty fun stuff.  But hardly nothing
off my Christmas list!   Oh Well!
Tomorrows another day!

Well it's Tuesday which means it's time for another Challenge
over at CCCB! 
This week Ros has come up with a great challenge..


Well to tell the truth when I first read the challenge I thought
Kraft was a company name..  And I could not find this paper anywhere..
Then a nice lady at Hobby Lobby informed me it was a type of
paper.  They had a whole pack of it from "My Mind's Eye"
And I got the whole pack for 50% off..  It is kraft paper with
some wonderful prints on it..  I LOVE IT!

See you learn something everyday! Thanks Ros!

I am sure you will be seeing some creations in the future with it.

On my card this week I used the plan kraft paper..
Along with some red and green card stock!

This cute little image is from our sponsor this week!

You have a chance of winning some free digi stamps
by just playing along..

I just love this gingham ribbon.
I think it goes perfect with this card.

Like I always say, If you want to play along or if
you just want to see what the other Gals have come up with
You can hop on over to CCCB.

Well I better go find something yummy to have for dinner!

Hugs, Linda

Linda, this card is just so sweet. The little merry at the bottom with the ribbon and button are adorable!!!
