Not So Traditional

Well, the boutique is over and WHEW it was a lot of hard work, but well worth it.  I had a great time, got to meet a lot of nice people, and made some Christmas money.  A special word of thanks to all of you for your encouraging words.  Now, I'm looking forward to getting my life back to "normal" - whatever that is.  LOL

This is one of the (many) Christmas cards I made for the boutique.  This particular card did not sell.  But that's quite alright because I need cards to send out myself.  So, I will use what's left over from the sale.  I hope that all of you had a relaxing weekend.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges: - No Red or Green - Holiday - A Christmas Gift - Blue Color Challenge - Anything Goes at PCJ - Sparkle - Let It Snow

Thanks again for your encouragement.  I appreciate hearing  your sweet comments, and visiting all of your lovely blogs.
