Happy Thursday everyone!  I am having so much fun being the guest designer for Sassy Designs that I'm not looking forward to the end of the month :( This week's Dare to Be Sassy Thursday Challenge is "Christmas Thanks".

My card today uses All Wrapped Up.  This isn't your traditional Christmas thanks but I wanted to go with the reds and well this one is for my hubby as he got me a beautiful jewelry set this year :)
