It seems like we say an awful lot of that this time of year, doesn't it? The amount of gifts that get passed around in my family alone is a bit absurd....but, I love it. I love getting gifts and I especially love giving gifts. I love the whole Christmas season, spending time with family and friends, buying things for my loved ones, wrapping presents and EATING!
Anyway, I have been so wrapped up in Christmas that I've had very little time to craft and I'm going through complete withdrawl! So, it's after midnight and I'm exhausted but I stayed up to take advantage of my quiet house and finish this card that has taken me a week to complete!
I used "cozy cabin" from Phindy for this card. It was one of my Christmas presents and it's been killing me that I have these new images just waiting to be colored. I used watercolors and then added red embossing powder for the tree lights and a clear-ish glitter for the snow. I absolutely love the end result!
I also got a new paper pack for Christmas (a couple of them actually). I used these K&Company papers from my aunt - it's a HUGE paper pack - I'm soooooo excited!
So, this card is for two different challenges:
1.) Phindy's Place Challenge Blog - "Give Thanks with Scraps" - luckily the "with scraps" part is optional. I just couldn't resist using my brand new papers!
2.) Mary's Challenge at Angel Creative Updates - "Snow Anywhere" - this is my third entry for her challenge, I have pretty good odds of winning this week!
Alright, I have to go to bed, if this post makes little or no sense, have pity on me, I'm VERY sleep deprived! However, I'm happy because I got to craft!!
