Simple & Sweet Christmas Cards

I created this snowflake card for today's FS143 Miss Boo, Jen. Jen creates fabulous CAS cards and when I saw her snowflake card here I knew instantly I was going to case that one. I changed very little because I adore her card so much. I added red, glitter to the snowflakes, and a button. I used the Verve set Christmas In The Air. This style of card is super for Christmas cards, easy to produce and yet very sweet.

I have had a jammed packed fun weekend. I have a friend who sells Creative Memories and she sponsors a card workshop and invites a Close To My Heart consultant and a Stampin Up demonstrator. My good friend and my SU demo, Deb Horst and I go to the workshop together. I took two Christmas cards with me to the workshop to reproduce. The card below is one of the two, it was a huge hit. It is super simple yet so completely adorable. I used the new SU shimmer paint for the antlers, added the very merry sentiment and the wide ribbon attached with a button and twine.



I also planned our Harvest Party at church which was last night, that was also a huge success. We had a talent show, karaoke, a cake, walk, hide rides, a hay mountain, and a bonfire......lots of food hot dogs, chips, candy, and shelled peanuts; a fun filled evening. I am super exhausted and ready to chill for the evening. One last thing to do though, I have to get my creation ready for tomorrows Mojo Monday Sketch. Be sure to visit me in the morning and check out the fabulous sketch and my mojo creation for the week. Enjoy your evening!
