White Christmas Week!

Hello and welcome to White Christmas week here at Saving My...!  I love making Christmas cards, but I hate scrambling to get them done at the last minute.  There's a challenge blog I follow to help me try to get a jump on it, as well as have a little fun with it.  I've only managed to participate a couple of times so far this year, but that's ten cards I won't have to make later!

So, I've decided to share them all with you this week as well as give away at least 2 stamp sets while we're at.  Of course they will be Christmas themed!  The rules are simple: please be a follower, and just leave a comment on any/all of the next 5 posts (limit one comment per person per post).  I will be gone to CHA next week, so I will pick at least two winners when I get back.

Now, on to the cards!  This month's challenge at Christmas Cards All Year 'Round is "white".  White should be a main color, and there should be bling included.  As an extra challenge, you can add flowers.  Here's a quick shot of all 5 cards (not a great shot thanks to lighting, but it's just needed to link up to the challenge.):

Like I said, I will get to these cards over the next five days.  Today's featured card is a "gift box" card.

All of the details for this card are over on the Cutters Creek blog today, so head over and check it out!  Be sure to leave a comment before you go so you can be entered in the drawing for the stamps.

  11. This is soooo pretty! I love blue and white together on Christams cards and I love the snowflakes Cuttlebug folder too. You did a wonderful job on this. I have just discovered your blog today so I am looking at the cards in reverse order and they are all just beautiful. Now I'm inspired to start making my own cards for the coming holiday season. Thanks so much for sharing and for the chance to win a cool stamp set.
