This is another of the cards I have made to give to kiddies at Christmas. This has certainly been a great way to use up my VOS...especially stash from the dollar store! Some of the elements would make a cardmaker shudder, but a kid would think they were heavenly!
Here is a closeup of the bit of sparkle on the tag.
Stamping for Pleasure. Pop on over there if you have time. She is currently running her September Rudolph day challenge. It is a great way to get your Christmas cards done and dusted before the busy Christmas season. I added a couple of snowflakes to the flourish...layered two colours for the bottom one and did a little haircut on the green layer! The center gem is a slim one from the dollar store that I am trying out to see if they will make it through the slot at the post office. In this case, I think the brad and the Holly Jolly chipboard are going to fail the slot...but that is OK, as this card will be hand delivered to a good friends little boy!
I managed to use some snippets of paper so will be dropping by Di's playground at Pixies Crafty Workshop. Her challenge is a great way to encourage you to use some snippets from your never ending pile. My kraft snowflake paper and the scrap of wood grain DP, as well as the kraft card stock, were all from my snippets. Feels good to make something from those scraps!
No recipe tonight as I am a wee bit overtired...had a busy, busy week and have to get up early as DH is driving our eldest daughter (Glamour Girl) to the airport. She is off for 10 weeks in Monaco again:(
I will try to write out the recipe tomorrow. Ten more days of hectic life and then I will settle into our winter routines. I always seem to get more crafting done in the late Fall and winter! I am squeezing in a trip to visit my Mum and my sister, before the icy roads make travelling to the Okanagan difficult. I so do not enjoy winter driving on the Coquihalla Hwy (nicknamed the Highway to Hell) There is actually a TV show called that, about the tow truck drivers and the rescues they do, on that highway. It is a 4 to 5 hours drive so I will stay there a few days.
I have been keeping up my errand walking on Wednesdays and Thursdays...when I head up to Mum's, I plan to walk into town for her errands. That way, I can still keep to my walking plan. It is a bit further to the shops in her village but that will be good for me. There are 2 benches along the route, so I will just sit for a minute along the way.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets
2. CHNC Extra - must be Christmas
