~ White Christmas ~

Good Evening, Friends!

A few days ago, I received a request from my good friend, Judy (StampingQueenJAR).   She asked if I would guest host the Limited Supply Challenge.   What an honor!   I have never been known for my ability to ”limit” my cards, so I knew it would be a challenge to come up with something fun.

I didn’t have to think long before I came up with the challenge.   I had just been thinking of years gone by.   It was always our tradition to watch the movie White Christmas on Thanksgiving eve, after the kitchen was cleaned.   My mom started the tradition many years ago.   When she passed away, I continued the tradition.   It is also our tradition to put the movie on after the kids have gone to bed on Christmas Eve.   I never get to see the whole movie on Christmas Eve…but falling asleep to it makes me feel closer to mom.

Ok, so here’s the challenge.   For this week’s Limited Supply Challenge, we are to make White Christmas cards.   The details of the challenge can be found on the LSC thread HERE.

Here is my sample:

I was cruising blogs a while ago when I found this awesome stencil on Jerri Jimenez’s blog.   You can find the stencil HERE.   I knew I had to have it, so I ordered it right away.   Jerri’s little web store is awesome.   Her service was incredibly fast and personal.
