Red & Gold Christmas:

Good morning all!  I am squeaking in with a quick card.  I set my alarm early this morning so I could get up and do one of those 10 minute cards.  My 10 minute card turned into a 30 minute card, but I am still impressed with myself as I am more of a 2 1/2 - 3 hour card makers.
Card Ingredients:  My Mind's Eye paper,  DCVW and Bazzill Basics cardstock, K&Co chipboard sentiment, Queen&Co Twinkle Goosebumps.  Tools:  sewing machine, Making Memories edger.

I made this card for the following challenges:  Christmas Card Challenges - texture, Southern Girls - chipboard, Just Keep On Creating Celebrate the Occasion- Christmas, Creative Craft Challenge Crafty Mess - sentiment only, Merry Monday - sketch w CAS:


And meet Mimi Teddy:

LOL, I've never made a card within 10 or even 30 minutes, it takes me ages to finish one! That's why I love this card even more! Thank you for joining us at the Celebrate the Occasion challenge and hope to see you back again. Hugs
