The Challenge #53 A Non-Traditional Christmas

Making a NON-traditional Christmas card seems like second-nature to me ... you know I cannot resist a chance to use grey, right?

Here, I'm pairing it with pink ... how can a girl go wrong?


I'm also the girl who buys all those Non-Peppermint candy-canes!

There were so many cards in The Challenge gallery last week that fit this Non-Traditional category, I just know you will all be up to the task this week ... and I can't wait to see them!

Thanks for stopping by!

SWEETNESS!! I do love the mice, might have to break down and get them now that I see you using a "harvest mouse" to perfection on a Christmas card. And a CUTE card at that!!

Love your little holiday mouse, Michele! And I also love butterscotch candy canes, and berry flavoured ones, and Cinnabon ones, and rum & butter flavour, and ... OK, I'll stop now while I'm ahead! :-)
