Winter Fun...

{Friday's post was a little late, but it's up! Check it out, if you have time! Thank you!!}

Haha!! So you thought we were done with Christmas?! well, technically we are, but it's still WINTER... and i know some friends that are getting a kick start with Christmas cards for this year! Fabulous idea!!! especially for me, knowing that this year will be an extremely busy one, can't help but join in (as much as i can)... will take off a whole lotta last minute creating as the holiday nears again...

Thanks to Danni and Kimberly, my awesome FBW sisters, for inspiring what they have created as a challenge (mainly personal goals) called A Touch of Christmas... it's a showcase that they do every Thursday... with a little ease of doing atleast one card, tag or the like once a week, in prep for Christmas 2010... they would love to see what you create... =D so, this week i'm joining in...

thankfully, i haven't put away all my Christmas/winter supplies... but i was able to organize them and now have them all in one container instead of 5... the only thing that is a mess are my papers... and i have scraps of them everywhere.. LOL... and, of course, a few challenges helped me out on this card.... Here is what this is for....

1. ROP #29 - Winter

2. MMSC #36 - Sketch

3. DCRU #21 - Leftovers (create a Christmas/Holiday card with scraps)

4. SSHP #14 - Snowflakes Gone Wild

a quick recap.... using the sketch over at MMSC, i pulled out some scrap snowflake paper along with some red and white striped paper... colored Sweetie Anya from TGF with copics and fun flocked the white areas... punched many snowflakes, small and large and glued them together off setting the colors... added tiny red and white rhinestones to the middles... used the sentiment Happy Holidays from Dandelion Designs and last but not least, some white ribbon... eek! sorry for the horrible picture... you can actually click on the pix to enlarge it....

not bad for my 1st Christmas card this year.... hahaha! don't mean to pull you down since i know we're all still recovering from that holiday... but really, it is a fabulous idea right?! okie dokie artichokie.... come back later.... may have just one more for you today... =D
