TSG134: Color Combo (Holly Jolly)

Holly Jolly, Warmest Wishes, Hohoho will be back in stock sometime today and the other stamp sets you have been waiting for should be here sometime tomorrow!!
I can't believe that Monday is here already! I wish that there were more hours in the day because I am just NOT ready for Christmas. Would you believe that I still have not done ANY shopping for the girls yet?? Yikes! Since this is their last week in school before break, I'd better get going on that ;)

This week for the TSG challenge we have a fabulous color combo with a twist of making your card winter themed. When I first saw the colors, I went into a bit of a panic but after leafing through some of my DP packs I felt a little relief when I came across some cute Cosmo Cricket paper.
