Happy Holidays!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

It's almost half way through December and we just got our first snowfall for the season! Considering we're in the Northeast, that's almost unheard of! Thankfully, about an inch of white stuff did fall and now I have a pretty view outside my kitchen window. It looks up at the hill behind the house and into the woods and everything now has a dusting of snow over it...so pretty! I'd take a photo for you but by the time I get home from work in the evenings, it's pitch black outside and I can't see a thing!

Speaking of snow, I made another card using that awesome Snow Days set from There She Goes!

What a good puppy he is leaving that tree and all it's ornaments alone! :)

Mr Puppy was colored with my trusty reinkers and aquapainter brush. I then cut the circle panel with my large circle nestie and sponged the edges of it with SU's Cool Caribbean ink. I then matted it to some kraft cardstock and paper pierced the edges. I just had to use more of that yummy paper from Crate Paper before the season is done! Each layer is sponged with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and machine stitched for a more finished look. I added the snowflake (which I added Stickles to) and the Happy Holidays sentiment from the set for a little more sparkle....can't have enough sparkle on a Christmas card, can you?!!

Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? We can finally start ours this weekend! Shocking, I know, but we had to wait for The Man's unemployment payments to start before we could get into the spirit of things. Nothing like some last minute shopping to get one in the Christmas spirit! lol

Have yourself a good one!

I'm always happy when I have a new post to look at in the morning from you. This one is so nice. Just love your coloring and use of the delish "crate paper" papers.
I have these papers and have been having so much fun using them.
Happy holidays, Kim

What a fantastic card Sandra!! I love this layout, and you know how much I love your coloring. Hang in there girl. There are a lot of us in the same boat (about the holidays & such). We are hurting too. Our neighbor actually bought us a tree. I feel truly blessed. {{{{HUGS}}}} Tracy
