To play along and be eligible for our TOP HONOURS you need to use at least 3 of these colors on your Christmas creation - but it's fine if you use more too :o). I used 5 of the 6 on my card (all but the light blue). Without any more anticipation, I present to you... my Ugly Sweater card. Hope you like it :o)
This past season our family attended our first Ugly Christmas Sweater party. We were on the hunt through the local thrift stores to find the awfulest (is that a word?) most hideous sweaters we could for the event as we were pretty sure that there must be some kind of prize for the ugliest one. We laughed and laughed while we tried on sweaters. People were stopping to laugh with us and help us hunt. It was quite funny really. My husband and son couldn't find a man's sweater to fit them so they ended up with ladies sweaters. Guess you can probably figure out that they both have very good senses of humor about them. Quite comical really :o) I found one that really wasn't that bad - but I'm pretty sure my darling Grandma donated it about 25 years ago. Everyone kept calling me "Grandma Hester" when I had it on :o) I don't feel so bad about that though as she is the cutest, tiniest little grandma around - so it's a compliment (big smile). Ok... so here's the really funny part about my ugly sweater story...MOST of the people didn't even bother to show up in an ugly sweater. Can you believe it?! We felt kind of silly - especially my husband and son. Oh well... we had a very good time as a family shopping for our ugly sweaters so it was worth it!
So..time for you to go visit the other lovely ladies on the 52CCT DT and see what they have come up with for Patricia's March Color Challenge. We have a talented Guest Designer - Scraplady - joining us this time too. She makes really lovely cards and we are happy to have her with us. I hope that you will decide to join us this week! I can't wait to see what you make.
Til next time friends...hugs and happy crafting! D
