Holiday Stamped

Hello my friends!

The last Sketch Your Holiday Style Challenge over at the Moxie Fab Blog is A Stamping Challenge. I used the same stamp set as on yesterday card except I stamped the snowflakes in cream onto kraft cardstock. Punched the top with my apron lace border punch then added a torn edge and some floss. Finished the card off with a rounded corner, stamped sentiment and some pearls added to the center of the snowflakes.
I think I'm going to give this challenge another try, as I was posting the link to the Moxie Fab blog I realized that this card was kind of similar to Maren Benedict's Think Snow Card. So I want to create something different. Funny how that happened, I wasn't even thinking of her card when I created mine.

The new DT for the CAS Challenges has been posted. I didn't make it this time but the ladies that did are very talented ladies and have galleries full of fabulous work! I can't wait to see what they create!

I got a nice surprise yesterday... My hubby brought home a new laptop computer. It's so nice and fast, our other computer is out dated and very slow. So now I can work at a faster pace making more time for the family and at the table instead of in the back room shut off from them.

Well, thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a fun day!
