Christmas card challenge for 2011.

Hello everyone , boy I am late tonight . Hope that you have all had a most productive day in craft.
Welcome to my room . Just a quick post , sharing another Christmas card . This one is number 5 . I was really grateful that I started last years early because as circumstances turned out I would have been sending shop bought ones ...great intake of breath + shock horror!

Before I share my card though , I will give some great news flash ........DRUM ROLL PLEASE
Shirley-Anne  [thats me ] is going to give a little candy to one of her  blogging friends who joins the challenge to make 50 Christmas cards by 1st December . I am hoping that Robyn joins in as she made some fantastic Christmas cards last year . I do believe that there is one at least on her blog already. Please check my side bar for candy photo asap . To be in the running for little candy all you have to do is 
1.create a new  Christmas card ,
2  post it on your blog along with a link to my blog  ,
3 then place the link to that post in a comment on my blog .
This only the first notice. I will place another post about the challenge, in a while as a reminder  when I take photo of candy to add to  my side bar.
OOPs this was going to be short post ...HA!     Any way here's the card .

Hi Shirley-Anne,

The whisper white embossed paper reminds me of vanilla icecream... such a neat card, that. Just right for a man.

Thanks for all your emails and love in the past one week. It meant so much!
