SC203 Homemade Christmas Goodie 2008

Hello & thanks for stopping by!! I have been super busy with getting the house ready for Christmas along with shopping and even some fun holiday baking!! There is still so much to do but I did take time-out today to stamp today's Sketch Challenge "SC203" over at Splitcoast.

Instead of creating a card, I created this card/project to hang on one of my walls this Christmas season. Since we have two floors to decorate, my downstairs is more of a vintage Christmas theme. The colors are warm and the style is more traditional. My upstairs has the fun holiday stuff, kind of like a sugar-plum Christmas tree. LOTS of candy, lights and the fun bright colors of Christmas. :)

Here is a picture of our tree downstairs. Our tree is actually 9 ft tall, it took about 6 hours to put the whole thing up! Now that the downstairs is decorated, its time to finish the upstairs. As you all know, LOTS of fun but LOTS of work too! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Before I go I would like to announce the winner on my Vintage Card Giveaway. Thanks to all that left a comment, I really enjoyed reading them!! Congratulations to Janet Swofford, please email me your addy and I will get your card out to you.
Have a wonderful week,

Jenniefer, this is just such a beautiful creation, so simple yet stunning. My friend just ordered this stamp set and we will for sure CASE this design. Your tree is gorgeous, I, too love to decorate for the holiday season. I have been playing Christmas music non-stop since November 1st (a local station starts then) and I am so in the mood to decorate. Happy Holidays
