MOJO272 & TSTR145 ~ God's Gift ~

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. 

The card...

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...
