Hi Everyone!  We're in the midst of our Anything Goes challenge at Clear It Out challenges.  Plus we want to help you use up those RED supplies.  I used these red Christmas papers that I bought last year.    They were on a huge paper pad that will take me forever to use.  Unfortunately I have a lot of those unused papers that feel so neglected.  But I'm working on it.  :)

Our sponsor is Sassy Studio Designs.  This pretty girlie is called 'Reindeer Games'.  Can you see her little bells?  Well the rest of her is va va voom with long legs & more bells.  LOL  You can check her out HERE. I colored her with my Copic markers.  You can see the numbers below in my supplies list.

I had a bit of a tough time with this one cuz I got new carpeting & flooring this past week.  Remember my flood from my washer?  Well this was the big blessing we got as a result of that mishap.  But it was a lot of work packing everything up to get ready for carpet throughout my house (I felt like I was moving).  Oh my goodness.........the things we accumulate & just 'have to have'.  LOL  It convinced me that I need to start purging & getting rid of STUFF I don't really need so I've already been to the Goodwill once.  Many more trips are in my future.  LOL  But it feels good to downsize & know where everything is...........especially my craft supplies.  Most of which are still hiding in my walk-in closet.  UGH  That's why this card was difficult.  I had to search for my Christmas embellies & ribbon.  LOL  That will teach me.  Anywho........back to my card........

I used this wonderful sketch from Sketch Saturday.  They are one of my FAVorite go-to places for sketches.

Oh I love those SS sketches too! They're always fun to work with. I'll be using this one soon. :-) Your card is so pretty Sharron. I like the "found" Christmas papers and all those fun embellies. Have to wait and see if this one racks up as many wins as that gorgeous SC you posted. :-) Hugs!
