Christmas Card Using CTMH Frosted Paper, Cricut Artiste and Cricut Artbooking Cartridge

DT Project For Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #77- Anything Goes
Hello to all my friends/followers and fellow crafters!  It is so good to have you visit again.  I really look forward to your questions, comments, etc.  I answer all questions and try to comment on as many entries as I can; but time flies and I don't always get to acknowledge all of you.  I wish we could sit down together and have an old fashion chat, drink a cup of tea and just enjoy each other's company.  Maybe do a little Scrapbooking, Cardmaking, or whatever craft we wanted to create that day.  Wouldn't that be fun? 
I have met many people online and have become good friends with several of you.  I enjoy our friendship; whether it be on the phone, texting, emailing or just commenting back and forth on the blog.  It is a great community of crafters and I cherish each of you.  I feel as if I know many of you already.  Isn't it great that we can do that; even with people who don't speak our language?  I love it.  Who would have ever thought we would be able to chat, email or contact others in another country who didn't speak our language and yet have something in common?  Amazing, isn't it?  I feel this is a fabulous support system.  Sometimes these relationships can be more meaningful than our own blood relatives.  I know we have more in common at times. 
It is time for another fabulous week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #77- Anything Goes.   I love Anything Goes.  You have no excuse not to create something/anything and share it with us.  We love to see your creations and leave our comments.  Our sponsors this week are Meljen's Designs and Bugaboo.  Be sure to check out their blogs by clicking on their names.  I love their stamps.

Our Guest Designer this week is Wiola F.  Be sure to click on her name to see her blog with all her wonderful creations.  Just add GDT behind your name when you enter for a chance to be a Guest Designer on Tammy's Scrapin Corner.   
I decided to use a Meljen's Designs Cozy Winter Owl; because I fell in love with it the first time I saw it.  It was so much fun to work with.  I decided to create a Christmas card.  I am really shocked that I actually created a Christmas card in August.  That is very unusual for me.  I also was able to create snow to add to the branch.  I used a new Blue Hills Multi Shaper Punch - Tiara for the border.   I really love these punches.  I have added all of the information to my Video page at the top of the blog if you want to check out the videos and online sites to order them.
