Brrrrrr

What is with this weather?!?!?! 104 two days ago and now it's 65?? Would someone make up their mind so I can stop running back and forth between my closet and my packed clothing?!?! Sheesh! ;)

So I had to get up at 5am this morning *yawn* to help decorate for the United Way kickoff for my work. I blew up over 100 balloons and I must say that the assembly area looks fantastic. (enter applause here).....and with that I give you another xmas creation. Sorry, can't help it....by the time it gets here I'll be Xmas carded out but for right now, I can't stop!!!!!

This looks much more "dazzling" in real life as I used Shimmery White cardstock for the card base. The focal image was made by stamping the large rectangle from the retired large shapes set in Bordering Blue (2nd generation) and then I punched a snowflake out of scrap cardstock (sorry, the punch is retired but it's still my FAV snowflake punch) and used the reverse mask to sponge some snowflakes onto the rectangle using Bordering Blue ink. Next I stamped the phrase "peace, joy, love" in Night of Navy in the center and cut out the rectangle leaving a slight border around it. The layers used are Bordering Blue and Night of Navy cardstock, I also heated the ribbon for just a few seconds with my embossing gun to make it wrinkle up a bit. On the silver cord I attached multiple Vellum snowflakes, just to add a little snow to the card.
Did everyone know that today is National Cheese Pizza Day? Yea, well apparently it is. I'm tellin ya there is a holiday for just about everything nowadays. LOL

I know how you feel. I brought our fall/winter clothes down from storage 2 weeks ago. Got them all washed and then it got really hot last week so I placed them all over our bedroom furniture. Today it is so cold again. The kids had to wear jackets to school. What to do what to do. Great card. I just love it!!
