Five More Sleeps!!

Christmas banquets, children programs, Christmas concerts.... such a fun & busy time of year. I thought I'd post my Christmas cards that I did this year (I think they're all out now). I went VERY easy this year. Simple & quick. I just adore the snowfurries set in the past mini and HAD to use it for my Christmas cards this year. So here it is....
I used whisper white as a base for a nice wintry crisp feel, then my favorite green (this year) Always Artichoke and the fabulous new In-Color Cranberry Crisp. I used the 3/4" circle punch for the base snowflakes and then I used the 1/2" circle punch and stampin' dimensionals to pop the layered snowflakes on top. Some ribbon and silver cord, a greeting & I was done. Well, of course after making 50+ !! It's fun though & I always look forward to making Christmas Cards each year. I have a challenge for my stamping groups this year that I will pass along to you in the new year. In January, stamp a card & mail it off to someone who would least expect getting a card from you. With one action you'll find creativity as you stamp and design a card, you'll have a sense of accomplishment as you complete it & as you slip it into the big red mailbox, you'll smile knowing that your action will cause someone else to smile & perhaps even be the highlight of their day!
Happy Stamping!!

Jen, you have inspired me yet again! I just loved this card so much I had to make some using these colors, although I'm kicking myself for not getting that stamp set now!
