Winter Christmas Wishes

Oh wow, darn internet has been bad, bad, bad here! My apologies to all my followers for being so late in getting my post written! Finally got some internet lasting long enough to save a post! Yay!  Anyway, I have some awesome news!

I have been asked to be a guest designer for C is For Challenge and this is my first GDT project! Yay! So excited!  It's always such an honor and a pleasure to be invited to do a guest designer spot!  Thank you so much, Anna, for giving me this opportunity!

Today's new challenge at C is For challenge is to use Buttons. If you're like me, you love using buttons, so this is a great challenge to play along with, isn't it? You have two weeks to play along, and we have some fabulous sponsors offering up some awesome prizes for the lucky winners! Want to win? If you do, then you have come pop over and play along with us! What are you waiting for? Come play along!

I made this cute Christmas card today, using the image Alannah, from Stamp Art Designs By Kathryne, colored with Promarkers. I used this fun mix of snowflake and plaid paper scraps from my stash.  Two large green buttons, recycled from an old coat, were threaded with Christmas colored baker's twine, and used to embellish the card. I used two pieces of metallic green holly in the upper right corner.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
