I love crafting...but I am doubting my creativity. This is my journey.

Another Throwback Thursday Challenge
I couldn't wait until today, so that I could enter into Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge for the second week in a row. Last week was the first challenge I had ever done, and I am so glad that I did it. It was a wonderful experience. Emma is so kind. She personally looks at every one's creation, and leaves a super sweet comment on your post. I am truly touched that she takes the time to look and comment on every entry. Plus, there were a few great ladies that came over to my blog and left really nice comments too. A big "THANK YOU" to Emma and the other participants that make this challenge so much fun.
For today's challenge you had to create a card using the Wild Card Cartridge for your favorite holiday. Click here to see the challenge and Emma's video on how to make the cutest pumpkin card.
I bought the Wild Card cartridge when it first came out and only used it a couple times. I had a hard time working with it. But after watching Emma's video and using some of her tips on the Gypsy, I now know why so many people rave about this cartridge. I am going to make a few more cards using this cartridge.
Christmas is my favorite holiday for numerous reasons. The number one reason is because it is the birth of Jesus Christ. My second reason is because it is the one time our whole family does there best to get together. I love my family, and I love it when we are all together. With that being said, I wanted to make a Christmas card. I used the ornament card on page 74.
For this card I used:
