Snow Place Like Home


Happy Monday, peeps!  I have a cute little Christmas card today, although I hesitate to share it because it features the Sleigh Ride framelits, and of course, they are on backorder at SU because of their popularity!  Hopefully everyone will get theirs before the holidays, because they do make super cute cards! 

I started with a Soft Sky base and embossed another SS panel with the Softly Falling EF, then added a line of diecut trees and a line of diecut houses:

I colored in the trees and houses with markers:


I even added some “snow” to the trees with a white gel pen:

I finished it with a sentiment from Snow Place, stamped in Rose Red….does anyone use Rose Red anymore?  Such a pretty color with Soft Sky!  And I resisted adding glitter, because I thought it looked pretty just the way it was!  Thanks for visiting today!

Cassidy received a sweet little stuffed animal from our 8-year-old neighbor, Gloria, so I suggested that she stamp her a thank you card:


She stamped the scottie dog from Hey, Girl and colored it in with markers, adding a “thanks”, balloon and some grass (and a glimmer brad!):


Then I told her how to spell what she wanted to say!


We’re working on our letters and now she knows a wee bit of punctuation, too!
Enjoy your day!

With nearly 9,000 backordered and no estimated date for delivery, I am giving up hope of getting mine in time to make cards this year. There is always next year though! This is so cute. I love how you colored the diecuts - very nice. ~chris
