Christmas Cards and Challenges

Hi fellow bloggers.  Like everyone else I am knee deep in trying to get Christmas cards together. This is Bugaboo's Stella, I really love Bugaboo stamps.  I have decided that I have so many digital stamps that each week I should choose a different designer to do at least 1 card or project. LOL that is my goal. My digi stamps are like my clothes, I have a lot of them but wear (use) the same ones all the time.
I think my flourishes turned out a little better this week, I still made my own but I used a stencil from I-Rock. I don't use the heat thingy, just the stencil.  I got my order from the Outlaw Women Scrapbook Emporium (LOVE THEM ) they have great prices I bought all the Tim Holtz distress ink pads (see card above "worn lipstick") and my I-Rock stencils.  All I do is mention a product I would like to have and the ladies give a prompt answer and usually add it to the store inventory at a great reduced price.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
  1.  Create4 Fun- Sketch Challenge
  2. Bee Crafty-Christmas
