Happy Monday, peeps! And Happy December! The countdown to Christmas is on! My friend Sandy suggested I submit my Paper Players card from yesterday to the Card Concept challenge, but I was worried that it wouldn’t fly since it technically wasn’t a tag! Here’s their challenge:
They wanted a tag or a card with a tag on it, featuring a snowman or something snowy! I had gotten these really fun BoBunny chipboard elements while visiting Sandy in October, and normally I would just hoard them, but I actually put a couple to use making a tag for my card, LOL!! Aren’t you proud of me?
I used the colors of Blushing Bride and Smoky Slate for my card base, using the sketch from Match The Sketch this week:
After adhering the Slate panel, I ran the card through my Big Shot with an EF from Darice called Snowflake Swirl. I kept the rest of the card pretty simple because I wanted to focus on this fun face:
I did add a little silver-glittered sentiment from Whippersnapper’s Snowman for Peace, stamped in Basic Gray along with some chipboard stars:
Cassidy’s been with her daddy the past few days, so I don’t have any pictures of her to share, but I will share with you the counted cross-stitch stocking I finished for her this weekend:
As far as I can count, this is the eighth stocking that I have done in this style….here is the one I did for my BIL a couple years back:
Every year, Counted Cross Stitch and Country magazine published a pattern for these in the 1980s, and I still have almost all my issues! Unfortunately, I am not sure my eyes could handle doing another one, though! Thanks for visiting today!
