VC Rocks Holiday Blog Hop & a challenge card

Although we shut down VC Rocks at the end of the summer each year, we always open it back up again in December to just check in with each other, wish each other holiday greetings, and share projects we've been working on. This year we have a blog hop for you, too. I honestly don't remember if we did one last year. 


I had a busy final week of school, and I'm looking forward to the two week break. There are two gifts I still need to go and buy tomorrow. My plan was to bake my famous Peanut Butter Blossom cookies, but I'm not sure I've got the time or the energy. Along with shopping, I still have wrapping to finish. Today I took some time out from everything and went to see the Peanuts movie again. I rarely go to movies twice in the theatre, but it was a chance to spend time with a good friend, who invited me to tag along with her and the daughter of a mutual friend of ours. It was a lovely way to spend a cold, grey day. 


I admittedly messed up the way I photographed these two cards. My plan was to take the shot with both in in the frame, to save time, then crop it into two individual shots. Of course, the cards are two close together an that didn't work. I'm entering the one on the left, with the poinsetta paper & the Cherry Cobbler/Garden Green colour combo, in the current Color Throwdown. 


I'm not sure how I managed to do such a terrible job of photographing this card. I thought I'd checked it, but apparently, I didn't. There's no sentiment on it because a friend was over & asked me if she could take a Christmas card from my stash, and she said she'd put one on. We're both stampers/cardmakers - she's just been really busy & realized she was short a card.

Hop on over to VC Rocks to see what the other Rockers have contributed to the Hop!

I really like your tag cards. I love that layout. The embossed Christmas tree is pretty too. I ran out of time and didn't do any baking. It might be store bought cookies for us.

It always seems like that winter break can't come fast enough...and then the two weeks just fly by. I know you are back at it, but hopefully you had some crafty time and some relaxation over the holiday.
