Happy Monday everyone!! First I want to give a great big shout out to those that follow me and take the time to leave such loving comments. You have no idea what a moral boost you give me with each one I read. Even the ones that say "I would have done this differently" for I will try it and sometimes I think "Hey I like that better that way!" so thank you very much!
Did you have a great weekend? Ours was okay with lots of yard work. Hubby cleaned up the rest of the leaves outside and I more or less did nothing!! LOL Seriously the only thing I did was work on some cards for customers and that list is getting bigger!! I need to make 38 more Christmas cards and if I don't speed up my rate I will be making them for 2012 orders! The Christmas cards I send out from us are store bought!! Every single year I promise myself I will do ours all year long and they'll be done. Well!! January comes and goes and February seems to early to be working on Christmas cards and before I know it I am out buying them! Terrible isn't it!
My card today is using this sweet "Letter For Santa" image from Elisabeth Bell's Digi's. I didn't have the right color of Christmas paper to match the rich blue coloring of her snow suit and of course my mojo decided to abandon me big time. So I found solid blue paper that matched the coloring and drew white snow flakes with a Sharpie marker and added a few 3 D snow flakes! My version of clean and simple!!
Do you like how big the snow flakes are surrounding the image!?! I thought ok let me use my Pearl pen and sprinkle glitter on top...what was I thinking!!! Now I have these globs of snowflakes but you know what!?! I decided to post it anyway! In person it's really pretty and the snow flakes sparkle big time!
