Christmas cards for the soldiers at CSSC

This week the posse girls at Cowgirls Sunday Stamp'en Challenge are supporting Operation Write Home, our challenge is to make Christmas cards for the soldiers to send to their families.

We have prizes from Cowgirls Digital Stamp'en Ranch as well as our fab sponsors, Whiff of Joy

and Whimsy Stamps too!!

 There are lots of chances to win as we have prizes for 1st place, 2nd place and a top 6 too!!! There is also a prize for if you post this pic on your blog and sidebar with a link to the challenge blog to promote this fantastic cause.

Our challenge then is to make a Christmas card (or cards) for this great cause, there are more details and the address to send them too on the challenge blog. We do ask that you don't use glitter on your cards as it can put soldiers at risk.

I've used CJ's image 'Frosty' from the 'seasons' collection at Cowgirl Up Designs. The image is coloured with promarkers and matted on some red shimmery card. I've used bps from my stash and some red satin ribbon. The flower is from Joanna Sheen and the sentiment stamped at the bottom of the image is from Elusive Images

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Ooh LaLa: Stripes
Bah Humbug: Favourite medium  - promarkers for me :-)
Fussy and Fancy: Christmas Colours
Sentimental Sundays: OWH Christmas

I do hope you can find the time to join our challenge and support such a good cause
