Winter Wishes

Greetings!

It's kind of gray and overcast this morning, so I plan on doing very little today, with the exception of spending time with my daughter.  School starts on Tuesday, so we're trying to get one more day of fun laziness and movies in, before she goes.  I can't believe how rapid this year is going by.  It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating the New Year.  Wow...

Anyway, I have another card to share today.


I love these snowflakes!  Even though you can't tell in the picture, the snowflakes are very sparkly.  Thank goodness for glitter glue.  I think I'm the only papercrafter out there who does NOT like glitter.  I don't own any, except for a bottle of Dazzling Details from Stampin Up. lol

I'm excited to combine the following challenges.

Christmas Cards All Year Round August: Sparkle & Shine
Cardabilities #105: Sketch
Jingle Belles: Hanukkah Song (a winter or winter holiday card other than Christmas)
Just Us Girls #254: Blue, Green & Any Neutrals
Christmas Card Challenge #38: Embossing (the polka dots are embossed in clear)

That's all for me.  I'm off to cook a few meals for the week, and wait for her to wake up so we can start our movie marathon.  I hope everyone has a great day!

Hugs!

ps: i do not think you're the only papercrafter who doesn't like glitter!!! and i bet your lovely man totally doesn't mind NOT having any stray sparkles allover the house, either, lol; my husband would be so jealous of a glitter-free universe! :)

This is an incredible card! I love that snowflake with the touch of glitter glue. That's what I like to use as well because glitter is just too messy. No matter how well I clean up afterwards, I still find it everywhere.

Yeah, no glitter here either ... I just stick with DCWV Glitter Cardstock because it doesn't shed ... I make enough messes in my studio without tackling glitter ... love your fabulous sparkle ... so glad you joined us at jingle belles.
