We started the new year out with some snow. I was thankful it was on the week end so my driving could be limited. I had wanted to do some visits but that will wait for another day. My snow shoveling fairies came through last night but I should go out this morning and do it again. More snow fell during the night. Of course, one must make a snow card during this time. I am getting caught up on cards I did not get sent during the holidays.
This stamp is from My Favorite Things. It is such a sweet image.
I colored the image with distress paints and gelatos. Embossed my white cardstock with a snowflake folder.
I am entering it into two challenges. The first challenge is the Friday Mashup. Winter theme and snowflakes. I think I have both of those covered.
The second challenge is the weekly challenge from The Paper Players. Their challenge is to make a card using a recycled or repurposed item. The cardstock used in my card - the base and the embossed layer - are recycled cardstock from commencement programs. It is a wonderful heavy cardstock and every year at the graduation ceremonies I can't stand to watch all those programs get thrown away. I now have people who are so into my recycling of these programs, in May, we have two ceremonies - when I get to the 2nd ceremony to work, they will already have a cart full of the programs for me. As I wait for the graduates to arrive, I pull out the insides and save the covers. It has saved me so much money over the years.
Thanks for stopping by today. I have enjoyed playing with my paper and having some well earned paper therapy.
