2010 Christmas Card Challenge Week #40

What an amazing turn out for last weeks challenge!  All of your cards were amazing and we loved looking at them all!  This weeks challenge is CAS, or clean and simple. Remember, that our challenges each week are optional. Any Christmas card is perfect for any of our challenges. The idea is to help get your Christmas cards done ahead of time and you don't need to worry about them in December.

It is also the first challenge of the month which means it is prize time, Sparkle will use to pick this weeks winner.  This week's prize is a totally adorable, brand new Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp! Good luck!

Please welcome this weeks lovely guest designer Shaela Odd.  And here is a bit about her in her own words.

Hi there! My name is Shaela Odd. I'm a SAHM who loves punk music, leopard print, rock climbing, and dancing in the rain. I am an incurable optimist and I laugh at myself a lot. I'm passionate about everything in my life and never do things halfway. I love to stamp and scrapbook, and when I'm not doing either of those I'm usually reading or sewing. I design for The Greeting Farm and Paper Makeup Stamps, and am also an illustrator for the latter. I was a Theatre major in college and someday hope to teach English and Drama, but for now I'm just enjoying life at home.

And here is her card.

We sure hope you find time to play along this week! Christmas is getting closer!

Don't forget to post a comment so we know you added a card!
