{Just a Little Bling}

Wow life has been busy this past week! If all goes well we will be moving back to my home town in small town Oklahoma. I am excited, and scared but I know everything will be fine because we will be close to family again. I want Cameron to know his Grandparents, Aunts, Uncle's and Cousins. It's going to be great!

So needless to say I have not had a lot of time to work on cards but I made time today. For this card I used Stampin Up's Whisper White and Rich Razzleberry cs. I also used Rich Razzlebery to stamp the snowflakes. I love this color on a Christmas card! I used one of the new Cuttlebug Snowflake folders on glossy white card stock. I love the pretty effect of the glossy paper! I used SU rhinestone bling in the center of the snowflakes, and SU silver to emboss the Holiday sentiment. This card was not hard to make but I think it turned out so pretty!

Be careful what you wish for...

I made a wish for a big snowfall over the weekend and my wish came true. Three days later we are still unable to get out of our driveway! Our street does not get plowed so we are at the mercy of the melting sun unless we park the car on top of the road which is salted and plowed when the weather is nasty. We need a 4W drive! (dear santa...) lol Anyways, since I have been home I have had PLENTY of time to make Christmas cards, and get several addressed and ready for mailing.

This card was made with an Inkadinkado clear set that I LOVE. Yeah, I love all of my stamps but I reallllly love this one. I used my Cricut, and SCAL to cut out the Nestabilities shapes, and the DP is from the current SU catalog and it is called "Merry Moments". I keep forgetting I have it. lol The stitched ribbon is from the Offray ribbon out-let. You may not be able to tell from the picture but the little brown bird, and the pine branch were clear heat embossed using SU Old Olive craft ink, and Choco Chip craft ink.
