Good morning! Hope this post finds everyone well. I'm spending the next few days trying to get my house in order... literally! This holiday season has been a hectic one. I decided a few months back I WOULD NOT stress so much about the holidays. I think it has backfired unfortunately! My nonchalance has proved chaotic... lol...
Normally we put up a live tree up the day after Thanksgiving. Due to health issues and prior commitments I was unable to get my tree until December 5th. My husband brought it in and placed it in the tree stand. I however, had zero extra time... so my poor tree remained in the stand until the next day before I gave a half hearted attempt at putting lights on it. And when I say half hearted... well... it looked pretty sad... lol... So on December 12th, I FINALLY placed ornaments on my tree after rearranging the lights. On December 19th I discovered TWO additional cardboard boxes full of ornaments ONLY after I wondered what had happened to ONE specific ornament. **sigh**
I think I have my tree in order just in time to take it down... :-)
However, I have worked on cards. Today I have one for this week's Mojo Monday and Shabby Tea Room Challenges.
Using Our Daily Bread Designs' recent releases Sparkling Snowflakes, Snowflake Sentiments and Spellbinder Snowflake Die Snowflake Die.
I used a watermark ink to stamp three snowflakes on white card stock and embossed them with silver powder. I used the snowflake die to cut each one out and added them with dimensional foam to the focal panel. A bit of pink seam binding adds a cut ebow with some glittered up jingle bells. I tucked my sentiment in front of one of the snowflakes.
Thanks for stopping by and spending some time with me. Until next time... blessings...
