Winter Wishes

It has been a wintery week here in NC.  Today was overcast and cold and then it started snowing/sleeting at 3:00 today.  I was inspired this morning to create a wintery card.  I have finished all of my swap cards and ATCs for December so thought I would make a card before I finished my shopping, started my baking and spent some quality time with my daughter and husband.  I hope you like this card.  I just love this stamp I got at Archivers, and the snowflakes are supposed to be a tree decoration, but just love them on cards.  Hope all are having a wonderful, wintery day!

Meet me under the Mistletoe

Here is a "saucy" card that I made for my husband for Christmas!  I love this stamp, which came with the sentiment.  I used the snow pen to make the fluffy fur collars and hat.  I love snowflakes so winter cards always seem to have a snowflake on them.  Hope you enjoy this card!

Snowy Weekend

We put up our Christmas lights yesterday morning before some weather was going to come in.  We don't get a lot of snow here in NC, but they were forecasting a dusting.  It started snowing at 2:30 pm and continued until 8:00.  We got about an inch.  It was so pretty with the lights on and the snow coming down.  One thing I love about NC is that we can get snow but it rarely accumulates on streets and sidewalks.  It is like the perfect snow!  However, you wouldn't know we got a snow if you looked outside today.  Most of it has melted and we just have traces left.  It will be cold this week but no chance of anymore of the white stuff.  Maybe closer to Christmas!

Tilda Gift Tags

This has been a Magnolia weekend!  I have made numerous cards with the Maggie stamps and have even put together a class that I will be teaching on Thursday featuring the stamps. I created these gift tags with two of the newest stamps that I have gotten.  I just love blues at Christmas and the sleeping Tilda is so adorable.  The glittery snowflakes were given to me in a swap and I have used them all up now.  I just loved them.  I will have to find them somewhere because they really enhance the cards and tags.
