Friday Challenge...non traditional Christmas card
Well this is as close as I can get to being non-traditional for Christmas. I know what you're thinking, I could use bright gaudy colors, ribbons, etc. but I was in a quiet mood today ( all that left over Prozac from my turkey dressing) so I went for a soft blue and white. I really mixed up my usage on this card as I used my Nestabilites, lovely don't know what you call it die-cut, some snow flakes by Hero Arts, a wonderful snowman sticker from Penny (that's Penny of the Penny Black group), the phrase is from Flourishes and the ribbon was found in Big Sky at a great shop called Sisters. So I just jumped from box to bin and ink to powders and came up with this little number. Word to the wise...Don't try to bring a snowmen in the house no matter how much they beg....they have a bad tendency to make a mess, once they start to melt, well there's no stopping them.
Tonight I will help with a dinner for children in foster care. I am going to help them make Christmas cards for their foster parents and their biological parents. Tomorrow is shopping day for a group home for mentally challenged adults. We are going to K-Mart for their Christmas gifts. Sunday is a woman's retreat at our church and I hope I can stay awake for it. Too much happening. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and keep those fingers dirty.
