happy holidays....

Well here it is such a dull overcast day here in Ontario... So what better then to get some things done around the house...and even slip into the craft room and create a card for the
Magnolia-lious site! They have a great sketch to follow this week. I am partial to sketches...this way some of the thinking is done for you!!!! Be sure to hop over and grab the sketch and try your hand at a great challenge.

One of my peeps...keeps telling me..Christine... try to use some embellishments. Now I am such a plain and simple card is the best for me, but no....I have been told embellishments is the way to go! I'm trying...how are the little snowflakes working for embellishments and they are punched out with wonderful already glittered paper from Doodlebug Designs..LOVING THIS PAPER!
Well I hope this works for the challenge !



Have a great Wednesday!
