Winter Thanks


Do you know how sometimes a card just "clicks"?  Well, that is how I feel about this one.  The Close to Cocoa card base was stamped with the Flannel Plaid BG using Chocolate Chip ink to give the card a nice rustic, wintery feel.  Then, I stamped the trees with black ink onto Creamy Caramel cardstock and sponged the panel with Creamy Caramel and Chocolate Chip ink.  I used my Ink Essentials white pen to add snow to the trees and ground.  The dp is Cosmo Cricket (don't quite remember the name..thinking possibly Slim Jim).  I am quite tickled with how this turned out!  

Yesterday I managed to get the Christmas tree and decorations down...just think, in 11 months we will pull it all out again...Oh-my!  Today I am hoping to clean out my craft area, and hopefully I will find my missing Horizontal Slot punch... :o) 
  
I do hope you take the time to enter my first ever Blog Candy post on the post just below this one.  It is for the stamp set Framed Friends from Gina K. Designs....  You have until Tuesday night to enter...

What a dork I am tonight...I hit the button twice when trying to win the Framed Friends - can you blame me? Who wouldn't want to win such a cute set. I love your cards and I want to come back and visit some of your older posts. Hope I managed to "subscribe" to your blog. Thanks so much for sharing. I hope I didn't goof up this post as well.
