Warm Winter Wishes - no - Warm Spring Wishes


Close up of snoflake embellishment




Good morning - my first personal Christmas card for 2012.  I made this card for the Merry Monday sketch challenge


I am taking an Online Class about using your diecuts and Silhouette Machine.  The classes have been fun - the first lesson -part of it - was making your own embellishments using diecuts.  I posted a closeup of the snowflake one I made.  This is from a Spellbinders die cutting set. 

The paper is from Collage Press.  The penguin is from Whipper Snapper Stamps - a Wisconsin stamp company.  The sentiment is from Fiskars - another Wisconsin company.  The ribbon is from May Art - I just added a touch of red to the pink/blue card.  I even used some Stickles on the snowflake - when you make cards for Operation Write Home - the glitter goes away.

Enjoy your day.
