Gasp....a winter card!

I am not too sure what made me want to make a Christmas card in April. Could it be that it is so darn cold outside right now or maybe that come December I will have one less card to make!LOL! Actually, I was at the Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog and their challenge this week was, Anything Goes for Christmas! What better way to get ahead of the game then to join in on the fun!


I brought out my winter Swiss Pixies line to do up this card. The sentiment is from Papertrey's "Holiday Button Bits". Lots of the Martha Stewart glitter on the snowdrifts...as long as it's on the card and not the ground outside I'm ok with that!LOL

Have a wonderful Wednesday! Thank-you so much for coming by and visiting!

  2. LOL, I've been TRYING to make Christmas cards here and there but it's just SOOO hard for me to do that when I'm jonesin' for summer. I love how you colored the ATS image. I haven't tried making one of these stair-step cards yet but I really need to....they look like fun.

  3. Hi Christine,
    Don't think you are mad at all...Last year I made about 200 cards for Christmas, so the earlier the better for me, I love this card, blue colours are always a winner for Christmas, I hope I am on YOUR list if this is the shape of the card to come!! LOL
    Sorry it's a bit cold for you in Canada, I have been to Vancouver in the winter (we are skiers, so went to Whistler ad well as BC~) and it's our favorite place to date..
    Love Debbiexx

  6. Gasp indeed! A winter card from Christine....whoa! It is adorable though, and you are ahead of the game. Good for you! That sled with it is so cute. Is that a C.C. Design image? Darling card! I'm sorry it's so cold. Ready for your trip South? My door is always open. :)

  7. oh Christine this is just perfect, the blue giving it the icy feel, with the embossing giving it the texture and the card style just suits it so well
