JUGS 5 - Wild Card Challenge!

Hey Friends~

Well, today is the day of the big birthday party for my kiddos.  The bouncy house got put up for a bit yesterday -- they had a BLAST jumping around in there...the weather even improved for today - YEAH!

Well, though today is Halloween - I've got a Christmassy post for you today.

Kristin is our JUGS Challenge host this week. The idea for her challenge came from former team mate Alicia, and she agreed to let us go and run with it.

We want you to create a holiday card that incorporated a photo -- whether it be from a magazine, or your own family/pets, put a picture on it (or in it, as the case may be!)

Here's my version:

I LOVE this picture I took of my girls last month.  This used the sentiment from Kristin's "Gift with Participation" for this week, and an image from PTI's Home for the Holidays.  Then I added a little ribbon to the bottom.  I just cut my frame out, and attached my photo from behind...and then I covered the inside with CS (should have taken a photo, sorry!) to keep it looking neat.

Hope you get to play along this week - be sure to use the keyword JUGS5 on your projects, and link to the Mr. Linky on the challenge blog.

Be sure to show the DT girls some love too, k?  Thanks for stopping by!!

Tracey, I love how you showcased Kristin's awesome digi holiday sentiment on the front of your card alongside your beautiful children! What a great holiday card! :)

Oh yes! This is a picture made for a card for sure! Your girls are ADORABLE and I love that you used a lable cut to frame them. The pops of sentiment, green tree and red ribbon look fantastic against the white cardstock.

Tracey your girls are adorable - and the card is cute as well. I love the cut-out nestie frame then attaching the photo from the inside - makes it neat and clean and classy. Love the sentiment on the front too - it's so beautiful.

Tracey, I LOVE your CAS yet ELEGANT card!! This is just beautiful and so are your little ladies!! What a clever idea to use the sentiment with PTI's Home for the Holidays set...they really complement each other well, huh? Also love that you simply cut a pretty frame for your photo and added your bow, tree and sentiment...and DONE! Great way to show that adding a photo doesn't have to be a HUGE endeavor!! Hope that will encourage more participants to play along!

Thanks for using my sentiment with your card! I REALLY love how it turned out ;] Have fun with your birthday party today!!!
