MM259 and JB17:20 Glimmer Trees


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!

Cute card LeAnne - I'm off to dig out some of that glimmer paper, it's so pretty. I'm thinking this would be a great card to knock out a few quick cards to add to my pile! Grandparents Day sounds like fun, sorry to hear your feeling under the weather - feel better soon! Xx

This card is gorgeous, LeAnne! I just love those sparkly trees cut in the Glimmer paper and the soft texture of the embossing folder in the background! You did a great job on this even though your not feeling well. Hope you get back to feeling like yourself soon! Loved the picture at Grandparents Day, too! :)

Love those glittery green trees and the embossed snow. I think your banner looks fine, it adds dimension. Thanks so much for joining us this week at Merry Monday.

I can't imagine what this card would be if you had your Mojo...it is beautiful LeAnne...Ragweed is out and playing with our sinuses...Yuck!....What a fun day for you and Cassidy...I know she loved showing off her young Grammy....

lauren bergold said...

you say "very simple" i say "perfection in CAS card making"... tomato, toMAHto, lol! but truly this is AMAZING; if i were capable of this, i would be seriously tempted to renounce my maximalist tendencies. (ok, renounce them occasionally.) (ok, at least RESTRAIN them, lol!) meanwhile, i'll just say WOW WOW WOW and thanks for joining our "Embossible Dream" at JINGLE BELLES! ♥

ps: only cassidy could make post-luncheon fudgesicle look like this season's "must have" makeup accessory, lol! :) :) :)
