Special Challenge Post-Card For Soldiers @ Cowgirl Up

Hi everyone well its sunday again already and this week we have a very special challenge for you at Cowgirl Up Designs Challenge blog we would like for you to make 'christmas cards for soldiers' to send out to their families you can find the address to send them here on the challenge blog.It is up to you what you put onto your cards but all we ask is that NO GLITTER is put onto them as this can be harmful to the soldiers.

You can make as many cards as you wish the more we make the more cards the soldiers can send to their families.

We have some great sponsors for you this week too firstly we have Whiff Of Joy who will be giving the winner 2 stamps of their choice and secondly we have Whimsy Stamps who are giving away 5 digital images of the winners choice and of course our very own CJ of Cowgirl Up Designs who will be offering 1 digital stamp of the winners choice.We are also having a Top 6 this week who will all get 1 image each from Cowgirl Up Designs,wow I wish I could enter lol.Please pop over to the Cowgirl Up Designs Store to get yourselves some wonderful images you will be spoilt for choice although you can use any of your images to enter our challenges.

For my card I have used this super cute image from one of our sponsors Whimsy Stamps which I have coloured with promarkers and then glazed the ornaments with glossy accents for dimension.I have tried to keep to traditional colours for this one.

I am going to enter my card into the following challenges:

A spoonful of sugar-Animal crackers
Fab n Funky-Whateva'
Fussy and Fancy-Christmas colours
Simon says-holiday fun

Thankyou for coming over and i look forward to seeing all of your Cards for soldiers
take care
