Let it SNOW!


Winter has been a bust in northern Virginia this year...very very little snow.  Perhaps my snowy card will bring us one nice blanket of white, then Spring can come.  I created this card for the snow challenge at Jingle Belles, but my inspiration came from sketch #34 at Paper Play Sketches:

I substituted the circle in the sketch for an upcycled scene from a store bought Christmas card.  The papers are all scraps from my Echo Park "Winter Park" 12x12 collection.  The "merry" was Cricut cut scrap that I had leftover from a project from a few years ago.  No new stash used here, but it is rewarding to create a unique card from old bits and pieces!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Stick With Us (sticker challenge)

I am playing along with the Jingle Belles sticker challenge.  I used Simon Says Stamp rectangle stitched dies to cutely base red rectangle and the two smaller red patterned rectangles.  All of the papers and the ornament sticker are from the BasicGrey "Figgy Pudding" 12x12 collection.  I used last week's Paper Play sketch #32 to help me design the card.  Lastly I added a Creative Imaginations rub-on sentiment on the sticker.

Happy Tuesday!

More Presents?

 I recently acquired some "Christmas Delivery" ephemera and 12x12 by Carta Bella.  That wonderful old world Santa is a Carta Bella die cut and the presents background and red with white snow pennant is cut from their 12x12 papers.  Used MFT Dynamics to die cut the pennant.  The forest green polka dot paper is by WeRMemoryKeepers.

My inspiration came from two places:  "It's All About the Presents" Jingle Belles challenge and this fun sketch at Paper Play Sketches.
I played along with every single Jingle Belles challenge in 2016 and I had plenty of cards by December!  I hope to do the same for 2017.  With great sketches at Paper Play Sketches, this should be easy.  Please join in the fun at both challenge blogs.

Happy Thursday!
