A wintery Christmas card

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

I've finally got something to show you today. I started with this week's sketch from Card Patterns. My card is also for Sparkle's weekly Christmas card challenge, the challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges, which is to use snowflakes and/or snowmen, Stamp Something's winter wonderland challenge, OCC wants a holiday card, If the Shoe Fits challenge is let it snow, and the winter sparkle challenge over at Crafty Calendar.


There's not much to say except that both snowflakes are covered in glitter and that it felt good to get crafty yesterday morning.  I get Devin and the kids out the door at about 7 and then have 45 minutes before I have to leave for work.  Often, I go into work early but some mornings, I try to make it to my basement for some craft therapy.

***Supplies***
Patterned paper:  Basic Grey

Other:  Marvy snowflake punch, glue pad, prisma glitter, PTI button, MS border punch

Thanks for the visit.  I hope you have a great Tuesday.  I'll be going out with a couple of my good friends after work tonight for dinner and italian sodas (our version of going out for drinks).  Can't wait!  Tomorrow, I've got a post celebrating a special event in our family.
