Hey everyone! It's mid-week, THANK GOODNESS, as my mojo has seriously tanked along with all my other energies. I've developed a sinus thing, probably due to the change of season and temperature, although I keep hearing about other people having the same symptoms, so maybe it's not my allergies! Anyway, I am not feeling too motivated, but I tried my best to come up with a card for the Merry Monday challenge of a Christmas tree as well as the embossing challenge at Jingle Belles:
When the Carols of Christmas bundle came out, I just had to have it...played with it a couple of times and haven't cracked it open since! So I pulled out the tree and deer dies and the Softly Falling embossing folder and made a very simple card:
I used some of the Mint Macaron glimmer paper from the last SAB promotion and cut out five trees, then used the curved base of the double tree to trace a "snowbank" from a strip of Whisper White cardstock. I then tucked the trees behind and in front of the snowbank and mounted it on a mat of Whisper White that had been embossed with the EF. I added a little deer, stamped in Sahara Sand and a banner sentiment from Night in Bethlehem. I think the banner looks like it is falling off my card, though, so I will go back and adhere it better....it's not falling off, but it doesn't look quite right, LOL!
Yesterday was Grandparent's Day for the second-graders at Cassidy's school; grandparents got to come in and eat lunch with their grandchildren, then go back to their classrooms for a little activity and to get acquainted with their teacher and classmates. It was fun! Of course, Cassidy had a big fudgesicle for her dessert; I wonder who wipes her mouth off for her when Grammy is not there?
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
