Good morning everyone!  It's my turn (Mary) to host this week's challenge.  I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who was able to join us for our last challenge ~ we had an amazing turnout, with some gorgeous Thank You cards.   


Once again it was a difficult decision, but we've narrowed the entries down to our  ....

Top Three


No.  8 - Cathy Lee


No. 34 - Kiki

No. 48 -  Pat Frank 


Wonderful cards ~ Congratulations ladies!  Please feel free to grab the Top Three button on the sidebar.

Now onto this week's challenge.  I thought it would be fun to make some Christmas cards with a bit of a twist ~ using Non-Traditional colors.  There seem to be LOTS of designer paper collections this year that include non-red & green colors in their Christmas line . . . black & red, purple & teal, baby blue & pink to name just a few combinations.
