Christmas Card #3 - revised

The laundry's almost done, I did my shopping and I made 3 cards.

It's been a good day - although rainy.

With the rain, it's been pretty dark this afternoon and I try to use as much indirect natural lighting as possible when I take my pictures. So, I only have 1 card to show off right now. Hopefully it's not raining so hard tomorrow.

The snowflake card. After I created the first card, I sat down with a pad of graph paper and really started thinking about what I wanted it to look like. I'm thrilled with how this turned out.

Stamps: Snowflake Serenade. Paper: Soft Sky, Select White. Ink: Soft Sky. Accessories: Scalloped Square Nestability die, white organdy ribbon, paper piercer, sponge, dimensionals, snowflake ornament.

Wishing for sunny skies,

Sara, stunning card. I absolutely love this; so soft and pretty with the right amount of sparkle. Does anyone besides a fellow teacher understand how demanding the profession is? I am in week 8 of teaching 2nd grade and am utterly exhausted. We get a two week break around Halloween time, and I'm counting the days. Glad to know you're making it in your craftroom; alas, I have only made two cards since the end of July when school started. This card is inspiration for sure. TFS.
