Peace on Earth

Good morning everyone! I hope your weekend is going super! Mine is!! It also seems to be flying by. I got so much done yesterday. I was able to finish up my calendar toppers for the shoebox club that I participate in. Each one of us in our group takes two months and does a calendar topper. Then we spend our shoebox time creating them. By the time we are done we have a full calendar of handstamped toppers! It is really fun! Now I am working on my other month and should have that figured out today. I was also able to get cards cut and ready for a breast cancer fundraiser that my friend Sherry is involved in. I wanted to help out somehow and this is how I could do it. Then I was able to get a swap card ready! I will show all of these in the next few days. I think you will like them.

I decided to take a break from the Autumn Splendor set and look at some snowflakes. I really like this snowflake set. It is different and very vintage looking. This card didn't come out exactly like I had planned but it isn't that bad. I don't know if you can tell, but I stamped some small snowflakes on the vanilla piece with vanilla craft ink and then embossed with clear powder. The hardest part was cutting out the big snowflake. Anyway, I hope you enjoy your day! Thanks for stopping by!

Card Recipe: Stamps- Serene Snowflakes, Four the Holidays; Paper- Kraft, Very Vanilla, Bordering Blue, Bella Bleu designer paper; Ink- Bordering Blue, Vanilla Craft; Accessories- Kraft taffeta ribbon, clear embossing powder, vintage brads, dimensionals
