Today's post brings with it my final Christmas cards for 2015. This has been a challenging year in our home but we have made it to the end in grand fashion! I wish you all a joyous Christmas spent with those you hold dear!
Things are Christmas crazy around my house these days. I managed to whip out several major tasks: 60 Christmas cards made and sent, 10 dozen French cookies made and frozen, and 25 Christmas recipe scrapbook pages completed. But shopping, wrapping, and 48 scrapbook pages still await me! I need to kick things up a notch this week.
Joanne is our hostess for the CCEE Stampers last challenge of 2015. We will be taking a short break before returning in the New Year on January 7th. So at this time we would all like to extend our wishes for a wonderful holiday season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!!! So.....here is this week's challenge..... Did you know? There are occasional "Leap Seconds" added to the official year. They help to correct minor variations in time. On December 31, 2015, the folks who maintain the official time for the planet, will add an extra second to the day! To honor this, the challenge for this week is to incorporate time into your card…..a clock, a calendar, a date, a watch, etc. For my card I used images from Father's Pocket Watch Multi Step Clear Stamps by Kitchen Sink Stamps.
We would love for you to join us for the final challenge of 2015 and add a link to your card on the CCEE Stampers's Blog. Thanks to those of you who have played along with us this year! We loved seeing your wonderful creations!
Today's 10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More designs sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps were created with their Holly & Mistletoe Multi Step Clear Stamps set. I love using this classic holiday greenery on my Christmas cards and tags. It always looks so festive! This is the color recipe I used for the holly leaves: layer 3 - Memento Northern Pine, layer 2 - Memento Cottage Ivy, layer 1 - Memento Bamboo Leaves stamped twice. 10 Minute Card

Today is National Roof Over Your Head Day. It is a day to be thankful for those of us who are fortunate enough to have a safe home to live in AND to think about those around the world who do not. To mark this day, our CCEE challenge today is to make a card with a house/building of some sort on it.
