Time Flies

Wow, time has flown by and I am so behind on things.  Seems like once Thanksgiving arrives, time speeds up and before you know it, it's a matter of weeks before Christmas and there's still more to do.  Today I decided to take a break from the hustle and bustle going on outside the comfort of my house and stay indoors where I can savor the warmth and a cup of tea while watching a bit of television.

During the quietness I tried out a few recipes I discovered on Pinterest.  Perhaps I'll share in a later post (maybe). And of course I had to go play in my craft-room and create a few cards to share with you.  So far I have created over 50 Christmas cards and it has been fun but very busy. 

During my creative mojo period I became fascinated with snowflakes and kept creating around the snowflake.  Not Santa or Christmas trees but snowflakes.  I did manage a few cards with reindeer and other symbols of Christmas but mostly my theme was snowflakes. Let me share two of my cards and you'll see what I mean.

This card was created using Bazzil card-stock and one of my newest dies from Memory Box, "Frostyville Border."  I then matched some ribbon with the paper and added a bow.  The greeting is a Fiskar clear stamp and my card size is 4.5 x 6.5.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Crafty Ribbon Challenge - #180 Christmas Theme (12/19)
C.R.A.F.T. Challenges - #394 Christmas (12/20)

This second card is simple and I like how it turned out. It has a certain style with all the snowflakes that reminded me of a snowy White Christmas day or a Winter Wonderland as sung by Johnny Mathis in the 70's.

With card-stock, ribbon and a couple of embossed pieces you can create this card.  I used a Darice snowflake embossing folder to emboss parts of the top layer leaving a space for my greeting. I cornered off the sections using two pieces of satin ribbon from my stash, added a couple of snowflake embellishments and stamped a greeting to complete this card.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

That's all I have for this post 
which is most likely my last post for the year.
With that being said I would like to say
to all my crafting buddies around the world, 
I wish each and every one of you 
that celebrate this time of year;


Sending Hugs from Texas

Wow 50? That is a lot. I did about 25 and I am burnt out. The snow flake die is very nice and looks good on the card.

Beautiful and elegant cards Lesia - I particularly like the second one with the textured background contrasted by the satin ribbon.
May you have a wonderful, joy filled Christmas
