OWH Sketch Challenge #93... Christmas Cardinal card

I thought I was done making Christmas cards for this year.. and than realized that I had none for our family to send out and our Adopting Soldiers group is thinking about sending out cards/gift packs for Christmas to all the children of USASMA that serve in the military.

I sent out hundreds of cards a week and a half ago to OWH.. nearly 500 cards in all. I was two cards short (If I got my count right.. there were 498 cards between the two boxes).. but I couldn't get another card in either of the boxes if I wanted to.. they were packed.

I seen the sketch challenge on the OWH Stars & Stamps blog this morning and printed it off.. tonight I thought I would make something. I hadn't all week long since I have been keeping my foot elevated and icing it off and on.. but tonight I was bound to make something.

I used the Cardinal and Holly digi that I got from Beccy's Place

This is a pretty simple card.. nothing fancy.. I just wanted to make something. I cut out enough stuff to make a bunch.

Here is the sketch layout:

thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them
