Falling For You

Oh my!  I had such a good time with my wonderful stamping friends Amy & Laurie at our Stamping Away weekend!  It's so sad to have to pack up and leave (although it's only a 5 minute drive to Laurie's house for me...but it is 2 hours to Amy's house!).  I finished 9 cards...some better than others, LOL!!  I'll share those with you in the days to come!

I wanted to share a card that I made BEFORE our weekend so I won't forget to put it on here...plus I already have pictures taken of it and I'm so tired and lazy right now that the thought of getting out my camera to take pictures of my other cards just doesn't appeal to me right now!

So, this is the card I put together at the beginning of last week:


I thought it would be so fun to "hang" the snowflakes!  I do realize that even though I tried to tack down the thread ends they popped back up and need trimmed but I didn't catch that until after I took the photos.


The Kraft layer is popped up, you can kind of see that here.  I used Fresh Snow ink and a sponge to create the snow drifts at the bottom and to ink the edges around the card.


This one was so fun to make!  I hope you enjoyed it!
