It's time for Christmas! Sankari's Snowman Challenge
If you were reading my last post, you'll know that I went on a wee shopping spree! Funny, when I was packing for my girlz weekend, I had to limit the amount of DP I was bringing as I probably couldn't have fit it all in the Trunk of my Mustang! Hmmmm maybe I should have kept my Truck or traded it in for a Cube Van! Well, that may be a slight exaggeration, but with all the gear that we carted up to Jen's this weekend, I knew that I needed to be frugal in my packing!
Thank goodness I only filled that container half full, because after my wee paper frenzy on Thursday, I had to sit on the lid to get it to close down! Which brings me to today's Christmas Card Challenge ( you knew I'd get to that eventually.......I just seem to take you along the scenic route to get to the heart of the matter, the card, the CARD!)
This card, with the exception of the chipboard sentiment (which came in one of the Other ...scenic route paper packages that I purchased.............It was on SALE and then the Store had a sale, so I couldn't possible pass that up!) is made from the Cosmo Cricket Jolly By Golly Line. It's very vintagy and the colour combinations are faboo!
The card worked up quickly as I used one patterned paper.........you can see both sides in this card. I cut along the curve of the pink pattern to create an interesting layout (well I hope you think it's interesting..........now pull your head up off your keyboard and take a look...........no more snoozing while visiting my blog!)
I mounted the Snowman Stickers onto dimensionals to give it some dimension ;-P and added a little glitta for effect! I didn't bring too much ribbon on this road trip, so I dug into Jax's stash and got some of this retro looking ribbon for my card.
How are your Christmas Cards coming along?
Hop on over to the Christmas Blog to see what the girlz have been up to!
Maria is adding an additional challenge each Thursday, if you really want to step things up! I hope to play along at some point when things slow down a bit.
Well, as you're reading this, I should be on my way back home! I am predicting that I will have had a wonderful weekend and will be in need of some catch up sleep!
