Christmas Cards For Soldiers

We have a new challenge starting today at the Cowgirls Sunday Stampen Challenge" This week we would love for you to make a Christmas or Holiday  Card for the Soldiers that are away from home over the festive period. The cards will be sent to them so they can fill them in and send them home to their loved ones.
You can find the address to send them too on the challenge site.
And if you need some instant xmas piccies pop over to the Ranch and look at some of the fun xmas digi's there.

As this is such a special challenge we have some special Sponsorsfor you lucky peeps Whimsey Stamps and Whiff of Joy"

For my card I have used this great image from Whimsey Stamps
Those sharp eyed among you may have noticed that I havent used any glitter on my card, this is because it is too dangerous for the soldiers if it comes of onto them it can be seen in infra red light.
As soon as I recieved this image I knew that I wanted to keep it monochrome so have only used, Weathered Wood Distress Inks. The Snowflakes were cut in my cuttlebug and embossed whilst still in the dies and the background paper was using a Spellbinders embossing sheet and distressed.
The ribbon I had in my stash.

To win an extra prize this week the cowgirls are going to be hopping around your blogs and if you help spread the word about this special event and have the announcement piccie on your sidebar you may just win an extra prize.
