All of the Wonderful Things Winter Brings!

Good Morning!

Hope your week is panning out to be a good one. My week has been a consistant one of sleeping, working, eating and sleeping again. Nothing much out of the norm. I'm using the time to plan ahead and prepare....mentally! The Little One has a birthday party to go to on Saturday, The Man as a job interview the same day, Sunday will be spent at the Mall, next Wednesday is Little One's Christmas Party at school, and I have to decide on what I'm serving for dinner on Christmas Eve when the immediate family come over! 'Tis the season! :) What's your calendar look like?? Much the same?

Today's card is another Christmas one...surprise, surprise! ;)

I received the TGF newsletter yesterday and in it I spied a card by Melissa Connolly. Her work is amazing and so well put together. I had to case it since it was the perfect layout for this Snowy House stamp from Stamping Bella!

I've seen some amazing cards done with this stamp from Lindabella and Paulabella and I don't mind saying that my card does pale in comparison, but that's ok, because it's all about practice. Practice makes perfect, right? :) I'm regretting the location of the sentiment on that busy paper...bad decision on my part. Some lessons are harder to learn than others!

Here's a close up of the house. I added some crystal glitter (with a Quickie Glue Pen) to the snow and the sky around the house. In real life, this card sparkles! The snowflake was punched from some white glitter paper I found at Michaels and I popped a Basic Grey Jovial brad in the center.
Question: Which Basic Grey collection is your favorite?? Mine would have to be the Figgy Pudding collection - loved all the colors and patterns in that one!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Adorable card! Never saw that stamp before. My all time favorite Basic Grey paper is "Nook & Pantry". It speaks to me! Love ALL BG.
