Christmas Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik SnowFlake Imprint and CTMH City Sidewalks Paper

Hello friends.  Can you believe it is almost Christmas in less than 2 months?  I am not ready for Christmas, are you?  It is amazing to me how much faster time flies as you age.  I wonder why it feels this way as we age.  

It is time for another fabulous Ching-Chou Kuik November Christmas Challenge.  This should help all of you get some of your Christmas cards created. We hope you find the time to create and enter this challenge.  We would love to see your gorgeous creations.  I am using this awesome Ching-Chou Kuik Snowflake Imprint.  Isn't she pretty?!
