Vintage and Frosty

Hello All.  I thought I would get one more post in before Christmas and with only one week to go, I am cutting it really close.  The excitement of Christmas doesn't hit me until the morning of when I am awakened by the giggles and laughter of the little ones that still believe in fairies and magic.  

But until then I'll continue to play in my craft room and share my creations with my crafting buddies.  Today I have two cards to share that I think are very different but both represent the holiday.



My first card was made using Maja Design designer paper and kraft cardstock. I distressed the paper edges and added a few embellishments to complete the layout.  The greeting says "Christmas Blessings" which I cut from the paper.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Crea Chicky's - Challenge Christmas (12/26)
Crafty Hazelnut Pattern Paper - December 2017 (12/31)
Crafts Galore Encore - #47 Merry Christmas (12/30)
Christmas Cards All Year Round - Anything Goes Holiday (12/31)
Scrap and Craft - #10 Anything Christmas (12/27)
Crafty Calendar - Its Christmas (12/27)
The Rubber Buggy - #8 Winter and/or Christmas (12/31)



I used the "Frostyville Broder" die from Memory Box and an image from Mo Manning to complete this card. I added a few embellishments from my stash and colored the image using Copic Markers.  The greeting I printed and used a Spellbinder tag die to cut it out.  Although you can't see it, the snow around the image is stickled as well as parts of his scarf and hat. I then sprayed the entire card with glitter dust to give it all a really nice sparkle. Perfect for the snowfall.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Die Cut Divas - Winter Cards (12/31)
CCC Digi Creations - #87 Happy Christmas (12/28)
Crafty Hazelnut Christmas Extra - December 2017 (12/30)
Country View Challenges - Christmas (12/31)

Cheerful Sketch Challenges - Sketch (12/29)
A Gem of A Challenge - #209 Anything Christmas (01/03)
Allsorts Challenge - Cold and Frosty (12/21)

Well, everyone, that's all I have until next year.  I sincerely hope each of you will have a blessed holiday and that the new year will bring you many more.

Sending Hugs From Texas
