Let it snow....Christmas CARD!









Today was such a cold and very wet day.......so I did a little road trip so I could get some inspiration out in the crafty world. Just take a visit to various scrapbooking stores, talk to other crafters and you have the makings for some creativity to feed the soul!

I wanted to make a circular card using my nestibilites and some new paper I just bought today. My new paper is Jingle by lily bee design.....oh it just spells winter. Not that I want to rush old man winter here...but wintery cards are so pretty! I then pulled out a Stamping Bella stamp I have not used for quite some time called "hat and MITTS". I stamped the image and then cut out the mitt image, placed some liquid applique ( which I totally love to use this time of year) on the mitt cuffs! Then I stamped Let it snow all the way around the circle.

How are you all making out with your Christmas card collection? I am so far behind, but not for long. I must have a day dedicated to just Christmas cards! Bring on the Christmas images, the glitter, liquid applique, prismas or copics and you have a start to CHRISTMAS CARDS!

  13. Super card, I love the circle design! Great paper you purchased! Sounds like winter is setting in. Your road trip was the perfect way to make a dismal day full of fun! It's still in the mid 80's here but down into the 50's at night and I am so glad because the heat this summer darn near killed me, lol! Hope all is well and that you are having fun gearing up for the Christmas season. Aloha & hugs, J:)
