Peace on Earth

This week at Cricut Cardz Challenge you had to create a Christmas themed card using just words!  Wow, there was so many to choose from, so here is my take.  Also, for Alphabet Challenge Blog you had to use the letter E for Embossing!  I will also enter it into the FCCB challenge, the theme is ribbon!  One Christmas card down:)!!!

Blog Awards

 I feel I have been deprived of being able to make any cards, because of my busy schedule for the past two weeks.  So, to my surprise while, I have been away, I received 2 blog awards and wanted to get them up.  I feel very honored and grateful for the awards.  First, I received the Blog Attitude Award from Celeste over at CC's Cards and Crafts.  And, then I recieved the Stylish Blog Award from Momma K.  Thank you so much ladies, I do appreciate you both, thanks!!!!
