You color my world


Yes. I admit it. It's been an entire week since I posted, BUT...I have been stamping up a storm while I've been missing, so that's okay, right? Right?

I've made 14 sets of boxed Christmas cards for the charity auction I'm chairing this week!
Each set has at least 5, most have 6. SO that means I've created somewhere between 70-84 cards! *exhausted sigh*

Anyway, this card is for the Tuesday Throwdown challenge this week to incorporate Buttons & Bows onto your project.

We were sponsored by Dee Dee's Digis, which I've come to adore! Look at the adorable crayon box and crayons I've used. Isn't it darling? I requested this digital stamp set weeks ago and it was not easy to add a bow to my project as this was going to be for a male, but I think the floss worked, don't you?

If you add buttons AND bows to your card, consider joining us for Tuesday Throwdown this week! 
Once this Christmas Bazaar is over I will have more time for regular posting. 
Miss you all!


ETA: My niece Kaylah was killed in a car accident this morning, please keep her family in your thoughts.
