It's Monday, the final Monday of my vacation. Back to work next week, booo! I took advantage of my last free afternoon to work on todays challenge for the CSAYL blog. I cant believe we're up to challenge 21 already. The weeks are flying by! Its a good thing I'm getting my Christmas cards done...we're almost to the 6 month countdown mark for Christmas!

Debbie from The Paper Garden hosted this weeks challenge and she said to " find a creative way to use eyelets on your card". I decided to use one of my favorite stamps for this challenge. I picked it up shortly at 9/11 and I've made a Christmas card with it every year since. I just love these snowman with the US flag behind them! I wasnt sure what I wanted to do with the eyelets so with some help from my daughter I decided to place them around the sentiment. As always, thanks for looking!

All supplies SU unless other wise noted:
Stamps-A Patriotic Winter by Brother and Sister Design Studio, Merry Messages
Paper- Watercolor paper, Riding Hood Red, Brilliant Blue
Ink- StazOn Black, Real Red, Brilliant Blue, Summer Sun, Forest Foilage
Accessories- Aquapainter, Sponge,Eyelets, CB Snow Dots embossing folder, dimensionals, SU markers
