snow is glistening

Hello everyone!  Well things are starting to get back to normal.  As of today I'm off for the Holidays until next week, just have to work 2 days - Tues & Wed, then off again until Jan. 

Are you ready for tomorrow?  I can't wait until tomorrow when Mark, Anna and my 2 grandsons come home.  I'm so excited!  I'm pretty much done, groceries are bought, presents wrapped, baking is done, although I'm going to try a gluten free shortbread cookie recipe for Bill.  It makes it hard sometimes to bake for him, most recipes you can substitute the flour for gluten free flour.  I find they just don't keep as fresh as regular cookies do.

I am so far behind in my blog reads, but I plan on getting to them sometime over the holidays.

I thought I would share another quick card I did. 

I stamped the image on some cream linen card stock using SU cherry cobbler.  Cut it out using and oval spellbinder die, then sponged ink around the edges.  I then layered the image onto another piece of cream linen cut using spellbinders floral oval.

I used a scrap piece of designer paper for the bottom, then wrapped a piece of burgundy crinkle ribbon around the layer and adhered to the card base.

I added a vellum poinsettia (memory box) and lots of distress glitter (clear rock candy) to the image. it is so sparkly in real, very pretty.

Thank you everyone for stopping in for a visit during this busy time of year.

 All the best to you and your families during this Holiday Season, be safe!  Have a very blessed Merry Christmas. No snow for us this Christmas, sunshine and a high for 46 F.

Merry Christmas to you and your family. It looks like everything is done, now enjoy the holidays. Love your card. Those scraps sure come in handy. Again your trimmings such as the vellum poinsettia makes the card so elegant.

Hello, Pauline! I'm so glad you're able to enjoy some time off work this week. You certainly earned it! What an absolutely gorgeous card! So simple, yet so elegant with a warm country feel to it. Love it on the linen paper in Cherry Cobbler. I've sure missed seeing your cards!
