Welcome to our Cowgirl Up Sunday Stampen Christmas Cards for Soldiers Campaign

Hi all, hope you are all having a wonderful weekend, I've had a busy working all week, then we spent today gardening, then hubby had another go at fixing my computer which has decided to go on another go slow!!  In between needing rebooting, hope to be back blogging soon, daren't use DH's  laptop has his work on!

ANYWAY back to our challenge at the Cowgirl Up Ranch we would love you to join us in making Christmas cards for the American soldiers to send home to their families and friends all cards made will be sent to CJ, who will then post (hopefully a huge box full) onto the necessary association. You can make as many cards as you would like, just please no shiny stuff or glitter. It can endanger the soldiers lives. This is a request by the people we will be sending the cards too.

I have made three cards and kept them fairly simple, so hard not to add some gorgeous sparkly snowflakes!  I have used Cj's 'Reindeer Games Series 03' so love this series.

Traditional Red and I flipped the image, have added special effects to the baubles and nose.

Traditional Green Card

AND just had to have a purple one lol!  Have white heat embossed the snowflakes

There is a SPECIAL PRIZE for a challenger who makes a post and adds our special badge to their side bar!

We will be having FIRST AND SECOND WINNERS and a TOP SIX!!

Hope you can join us this week in our Challenge, we the DT loooove visiting your blogs and seeing your wonderful creations.
