Christmas Cards for soldiers

It's time! Time for the newest challenge over at Cowgirl Up Designs.

It's time! Time for the newest challenge over at Cowgirl Up Designs.


This week is a very special week for us here at COWGIRL'S SUNDAY STAMPEN RANCH!

This week our challenge is to create "Christmas and Holiday Cards".

We would like for you to keep the Soldiers at war in mind while you make your card or cards! Please do not use glitter or anything flashy as it could put a soldiers life in danger! Once your card is finished and posted in our challenge, please send your card or card's to CJ and the address found here.

CJ will then get all of your cards off to the person that will be giving the cards to the soldiers at war to fill out, sign and send home to their families and Friends.

The soldiers at war do not have access to simple things that many of us take for granted like Christmas and Holiday Card's.

We're trying to collect as many cards as possible, so send as many as you like.

We will collect cards for about 2 weeks, so please get them out to us.

This is such an incredible way for the card crafting community to get involved and the world to be a better place.

Celebrating this campaign with us this week we have two fabulous sponsors:

Whimsy Stamps will give the winner 5 images of their choice!

Whiff of Joy will give the winner 2 stamps of their choice, plus CJ will give the winner 1 image from Cowgirl up!

Wow! What an amazing load of prizes!

We are looking to collect as many hand made cards as possible so spread the word and ask your friends! Copy this badge and make a post on your blog inviting crafters.
Post the Badge on your side bar. Leave us a comment that you have done this.
We will be hopping around to check and someone will win a special award!!

If you've made it this far, BRAVO! Now onto my card. Here's my card for this challenge:

I used my Tim Holtz die to cut out the flourish. I colored my image with copics. Isn't he the cutest! I used my spellbinders as well.

Have a great day card making!
