CCCB Week 33 ~ Blue Christmas

Hello everyone! It is me Linda again and I am your host again this week! With Christmas right around the corner, I thought it would be nice to do a Christmas card/project..... not just any kind of christmas card/project, but one with a theme! So how about a "BLUE CHRISTMAS". The minute I thought of this, I thought of Elvis. Do you know the song I am talking about? Anyway, for this week's challenge, we want you to create a Christmas Card/Project with a blue theme.... just like the one you see in the inspiration photo from A Creative Mint.

Guest Designer
I am pleased to introduce our Guest Designer that will play along with us this week.
Tante Kathe(Majo), thanks for your beautiful card Majo!

Here's a little about Majo in her own words:
My name is Majo (a shortcut for Marion). Around the net I am known as "Tante Kathe". My husband and I live near Frankfurt/Germany with our two lovely cats, also pretty much known around the crop community, as Emma and Cookie are my favorite objects on my layouts.
I started paper crafting in the winter 2007/2008 when a friend introduced me to the fun of scrapbooking, card making and stamping! I found it was the perfect way to play with all the ideas that kept running through my mind. I am very lucky to have a supportive husband who knows that I love crafting. I started blogging 9 months ago, just because I wanted to participate in challenges, and since then I have met a bunch of wonderful crafters and had a lot of fun. You are very welcome to visit my blog (www.majos-art.blogspot.com)
