I've been out on job interviews today and even though I know I need to finish wrapping gifts I'm too exhausted! So instead I'm playing in my craft room. I am done with Christmas cards but its never to early to start on Valentines Day! This lovely digi Valentine Snowman is by Faith at Designed2Delight, badge to this great blog is to the right.

Colored with Copics, I used a white glaze pen for the scarf hearts, stickles on the snow, a velveteen ribbon and Prima rose to complete the card!

Designed2Delight Progressive Challenge
I cant imagine Christmas is almost here!!! After all the running and planning and work is done I love sitting at my tree and thinking of the true meaning behind all the hustle which is Christ. This is my favorite holiday because of the gifts of family and friends. Im so lucky to have been blessed with a wonderful family and supportive friends.

As a child I would sit in church and just stare at the manger with the baby Jesus, as an adult the miracle still inspires me.

I want to thank Deedee for her generosity this past year. Once again this scripture digi is from her wonderful collection of art work, go to her blog (see badge on the right) for this beautiful peace digi and an opportunity to visit her store. This is my last card and after I made it I knew it had to go to my mom, Christs love and peace guides us all thru good times and bad times. The angel is from Hobby Lobby along with the gold ribbon, cardstock is from DCWV, Mariposa.

Last night I had a mini panic attack when I realized I was short 6 Christmas cards, this year I am really late with my Christmas duties. I ran to Archivers and cut out this card and with the help of Faith at Designed@Delight, her Winter Bear digi helped me at least finish one item on my list. These cards are so simple yet elegant! I use this die quite often for my cards. I placed snow globe gems in the inside of the cut outs, velvet ribbon and a snowflake.

When I think of Christmas I think of the Poinsettia, I love this flower, I know its tropical but to me it means cold, snow, winter. Red is my favorite color but this year I have white ones in my home, I think they are elegant and look vintage.
