OK, it's November 27th and I am seriously making an effort to create Christmas cards to mail out ON TIME Seriously??? Well, I am going to give it a try :o)
I love this week's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger and had a ton of ideas rolling around in my head .... why don't those transfer to paper in the same way, huh?
I was inspired by the pretty photo ~ the white icing on the (brown) gingerbread "snowflake"cookie, thus the snowflakes falling on the brown snow covered houses :o) You still have time to join in at http://www.moxiefabworld.com/2010/11/tuesday-trigger-its-snowing-gingerbread.html
My card (click on the photo for more details) ~
I used Kraft card stock for the base and for the strip under the houses; the aqua blue is a textured paper from Zoophabet 2; and the white is from Georgia Pacific.
Stamp: Hero Arts 'Row of Houses'
Punches: Marvey's 'Snowflake' and Martha Stewart's 'Cornice' border punch
Embellishments: Prisma 'White Glitter'; Stickles "Crystal; white foam stars, rhinestones and pop foam (under snowflakes) all from my stash
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ have a wonderful Sunday!

Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
I just turned on the computer for the first time today. Had company for dinner and spent most of the day cleaning, cooking and cleaning up again, so I completely forgot what the date was and that Papertrey Ink's Blog Hop is today :o(
WOWZA! Everyone has done such a fabulous job on their tags for this hop...I didn't have the time or mojo to really do as great a job as you all did. I made them like mini-cards with 3-D stickers and computer generated the sentiments ~ AND, these probably don't qualify for tags but, I stamped "To: and From:" on the inside and there is room for a little note also. Actually, I just wanted to post to this BEST Blog Hop evahhhhh! Plus, I now have some fantastic ideas after checking out some of your beautiful work and definitely have drawn a ton of inspiration from you! Thank you , PTI and thanks to your creative and talented following!! Happy week-end :o)
