DeNami Christmas Challenge

It's time for another DeNami Challenge!  


It's a Christmas Challenge!  Here is my card...

I made another one of those gorgeous Poinsettas!  I added that to a DeNami stamped background and greeting!  I stamped this Christmas Holly Vine in white ink and then colored in the leaves with green and the holly with red Copics.  You can find the Seasons Greetings HERE!

Stop over to the DeNami blog to see all the other DT cards!

I am keeping my post short today.  It's been a sad weekend here.  One of my dear friends lost her husband this weekend.  He was so young and they have 2 little girls.  My father in law is also in the hospital and it has been a very hard night.  I just feel like I am in a fog and am so sad for my friend and her girls.  My husband is having a hard time too. We just never know how much time we have left on earth.  Give your loved ones a hug and tell them how much you love them today!  (Sorry for the sad twist on the post!  I just had to share!) Thanks for listening!
