LCWC #18




Good Morning Everyone!!!!
Today is Tuesday and time for another Little C's Weekly Challenge! Yeah!!!! This weeks challenge was to make a Christmas card that features a picture of our family member(s) or pet. I have a ton of pictures around here but none are small enough for a card so I decided to use

this older picture of my husband and my son.

I seriously need to make an appointment with the photographer and update our family album! The last time we took a family photo, Ethan's front teeth were missing.........geez!!!

I kept my Christmas card simple this week. I used my Cuttlebug and embossed the base card stock with my snowflake folder. The stamp I used is from SU's Season of Joy. After I stamped my image, I used SU's clear embossing powder and added small red pearls to embellish. The sparkly ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.



This really is a fun challenge and for more inspiration, check out the other DT members!

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by!

I love your card Risa!! The white is just beautiful with the cuttlebug embossing on it. Great pic of your hubby and son...I think it's funny that we all don't have any current family photos to use! I need to update my photos too! Taking too many photos of Mochiko :0
