40 days till Christmas.

Are your cards finished. I haven't even counted mine but the stack is growing. Luckily a few of this weeks challenges have cooperated. Speedy the Cats friends challenge today is to make a card with snowflakes. Piece of cake! And I Brake for Stamps challenge over at the Brakefast Club was to use sparkly bling. This card should qualify for both. I sponged the background with blue and used the same blue to stamp my snowflakes. I then cut out my largest oval. Sponged it with the same blue while still in the die. Then removed it from the die and sponged with a darker blue. Put it in my Cuddlebug snowy village folder. Added a saying which actually says Autumn Season on it. I just didn't ink up the word autumn and it worked just fine for this card and about a dozen more I have on my desk to finish up this evening. I need to get myself some sayings for Christmas cards. Lots of Stickles for the added Bling.

Here are the details
  • Stamps - I Brake for Stamps & Marks Finest papers
  • Paper - White & Brilliant Blue
  • Ink - Archival Jet Black -Memento Summer Sky & Danube Blue
  • Accessories - Stardust Stickles, Nestabilities, SU Ticket Punch, Fiskars Snowflake Punch, Cuddlebug Snowy Village folder
