W, X, Y, and Z Takes It

Good Morning, and Happy Hump Day!! This week at Sunny Day Crafting
we are at the final week of the year, and thus have reached the Z - and we 
have made it Z is for Zebra!!  I got out the Silhouette and went searching for
cute zebras and this guy was the winner!!  Then after a lengthy search for just 
the right paper to put behind him ( which I KNOW I have) with no luck, I went
ahead and cut the palm trees, too. A very quick but cute card. 
Please stop over to Sunny Day and join the fun this week. We start all over
with the letter A again next week, so no more Z's for at least 26 weeks!

Oh, Holy Night

Christmas 2017 is past, but it is never too soon to get started on 
Christmas 2018!! Today's card has been made for this week's
challenge at The Merry Christmas Challenge, where every week
the theme is Anything Goes! We also have an optional theme each
week, and this week it is The Nativity. Obviously, I went with the 
optional theme. I was thrilled to get to use my Silhouette for this
one, as I love this image!! I kept it very clean and simple to let the 
Nativity be the star~
Please be sure to visit The Merry Christmas Challenge, and get a
head start on 2018 for yourself!!
