Christmas Rose - OSAAT #194

Hi friends.  Happy Sunday.  I hope you're all enjoying your weekend and that the weather is not too bad where you are.  Here in H Town, it's cold and windy and a little on the foggy/gloomy side.  It's been kind of a stressful week for me, but looking forward to spending some time with one of my daughters and her family tomorrow.  My  son-in-law taking part in a Christmas choir presentation as he does every year.

Since it' s Sunday, it's time for another challenge from OSAAT.  This week the theme is Anything Goes!  Super great and easy.  Everyone can do that.  Our sponsor this week is our own StitchyBear Digi Outlet with the prize of the complete set of images that the DT used in challenge #192.

To win the main prize you MUST use an Image from our store. Also, this challenge will run for 5 weeks until January 11, so the DT can have a little break over the holiday.   Plenty of time for you to get a card made and join in the challenge.
