Hello Blogger Friends and a happy Tuesday to you all. January is zipping on by a little too quickly for me.
I finally have all my Christmas decorations down, packed and put away for another year. I don't really want to think about any more decorating for awhile.
I don't do anything for Valentine's Day so this isn't an issue. It just took so long to put everything away I feel like I am all decorated out for now anyway.
Then I also had to pack and put away all the decorations at our Pre-School. That wasn't quite as time intensive as my home but still my responsibility and time. And decorating here continues for each season.
Currently we are using snowmen and snowflakes as our theme. In a week we will move to Valentine's Day. I have to get busy with some projects for the kids to complete.
Anyway, speaking of snowflakes let's move on to my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge #565 on Splitcoaststampers. Barbara was our hostess and she chose black, white and red as her color trio. Optional was to use ribbon.
I needed a thank you card for a Christmas gift I received so I took that route on this card. I struggle with CAS cards but this one came together for me and I like how it turned out.
Did some recycling on this card with my snowflake background. You can't tell from the photo but the snowflakes are glittery.
I layered it onto white cardstock and then onto my red card base. Added a Spellbinders ribbon label cut in black, some white ribbon and my die cut thanks word and this card was done.
Well, it's late and time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next.......God bless.
