More Christmas Cards

Hey everybody! How was your weekend? Mine has been pretty busy. We had a Christmas get together with family on Saturday and I have been working on last minute Christmas gifts. I will show those later. I have a few more Christmas cards to share. I made these for the recent PC Card Creation calls, these weren't chosen, so I ended up giving them away as Christmas cards. I did have 3 cards excepted for PC's Card Creations and 2 for CARDS! :) Thank you for all the encouragement and compliments, each and everyone of you gives me! It means alot to me! I also wanted to remind everyone of the Sketch Challenge going on over at Everything But The Kitchen Sink Blog. I know everyone is really busy with Christmas preparations, but this would be a great sketch for a last minute Christmas card, Thank You card, or For A Gracious Hostess card! :) I hope you all can play along!
Oh, and my card for the 10 min. card challenge, had a shout out from Jessica Witty today on her blog! Thanks Jessica! :)
I wanted to leave you with a picture today, that my sister sent me her Christmas card! I'm starting to wonder if my family is 'Twisted'! Staging these scenes of our kids! :) But I really LOVE the picture, I can't help but laugh everytime I see it! :) If you only knew how those two twins were, I would have thought they would have their older sister wrapped up in lights! :)

I hope all of you Christmas preparations are going well!
