I haven't created two cards in one day in a while....I liked the idea of a number of these challenges....and there are quite a few included in these two creations....so here we go....
The Sweet Stop - Sketch
Stamp Something - Christmas Color Combo
SCS Free4All - Nutcracker Theme
I haven't been to see the Nutcracker in a quite a few years - however I study it with some of my music classes at school. The dance and music is what I love most about it all...and although I danced, I never took ballet so never got to have a pair of toes shoes. So - I dug out another retired set, "En Pointe", to use for this card because I don't think of the nutcracker itself - I think Ballet!
Card Patterns - Sketch
CCEE Stampers - Use a snowman
Play Date Cafe - Rich Red & Fresh White
SCS Ways to Use It - Letters
Sorry to say, I dug out another retired set for this card - I do miss these Flakey Friends! There is also a wee bit of Dazzling Diamonds on the letters and on the ground beneath the snowmen, but it's not dazzling in the photo - oh well!
The Christmas season got kicked off last night by my attending the Christmas concert put on by the Josephburg Choral Society, - my husband directs the Men's Chorus. Perhaps today I will get the family to lug the Christmas decorations in from the garage. Then I'll procrastinate about putting the lights on the tree - I HATE that part - wish they'd just fly on the tree themselves!!!! Other than that, the house has the chance of getting a bit more spruced up for the season today.
Hope you have things which are helping you to get into the spirit, without adding stress! Thanks for stopping by for a visit - Joan
