Here's another card I created for a swap hosted by Stephanie Drewa. I do believe her theme was snowmen or snow or something like that. I love how cute this snowman is! Simple. I colored the image in using my Marvelous Markers by Stampin' Up. The snowflakes are punched out using some punches that I have. Then I sprayed them with some glitter spray. The little circle piece is what we, on my fav. MB, refer to as "Skittles" not sure who came up with that name! They are actually sold in the flower section of a local (Big Box) crafting store. You can get a whole bag of them for like $5! Someone in the crafting world caught onto what we were doing and marketed them under a new name, in various colors for $3 for a tiny container! What a rip off! I actually had bought a bunch of them a couple of years ago when the craft store had them on Clearance for $2 a bag! I probably have about a Zillion of them! So I thought it was about time to start using them!!!! :) The second picture is of the inside, where I stamped "let it snow" and added another snowflake.
I was pointed in the direction of this charity by a fellow Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melissa. They can use donations of cards, either Handmade, or Store bought for residents of nursing homes. What a great way to share your creativity, while brightening the day of others!!! Here is their website:

I wanted to have a place that I could show some of my creations. When my sister is able to visit she always asks me what I have been working on, so I thought this way I could keep her updated! It's also a way to show some of my other friends and family what I have been working on! This also gives me a little push to get some things made and posted.
I hope you enjoy the things you find here, and maybe even find some inspiration! Some of the things found on my Blog are by Stampin' Up! Ask me how you can get the stamps, or feel free to look at the current catalog found in the sidebar.(it will download, it takes a few minutes). Feel free to ask me any questions!
