CC Challenge #13 and some great big thank you's!!

Hello, hello, hello!! Sorry to be MIA for a whole week (Yikes!!)! I decided I wanted to give my blog a face lift so it has been under construction for the last week! More about that later though! :)

I wanted to stop by and share a few things with you today! :) Time for Crafty Critter challenge #13! Here are the rules:

1)My challenge for you all is to create a card using the Split Negative technique. Found here!
2)You can post your cards anytime between Nov 28th - Dec 7th.

I have never done one of these, so this was really a fun challenge! I figured since 'Tis the season' I would go with a Christmas theme to maximize my crafting instead of doing the laundry, dishes and mopping time! Big, cheesy grin! You know...multi-tasking by finishing my challenge card AND making another Christmas card! Giggles! I used red and white as my negative image colors and mounted the whole deal on a green base. I added gold cording and a white sparkly gem. The stamp set is Snow Swirled by SU! Here is my card:

Fa, la, la, la, la... :)
