~~ Santa's Slackers....1st Card Challenge ~~

Hi y'all...Sandi ( Daveshunny) and I were talking this morning and we had made a vow to make at least 1 Christmas card a week....way back in January. As most of you know, my back was dealing me fits for MONTHS and this never came to fruition. So she suggested we challenge each other and decided to name our challenges...Santa's Slackers and this is the 1st card. We used this sketch Sandi found and this is my interpretation of it. We had to use Winter Woodlands( she is so bossy ya Sandi ) so I used the snowflake on that cart. She says we have to write down the dimensions too....( see I told ya...bossy ) The snowflake on the mat with scallop, was cut at 3.41 x 3.34...the snowflake by itself, which I cut 3 times , was cut at 2.80 x 3.37.The smaller flakes were cute at 2.36 x 3.35. I used a punch for the back of them, added some pearls and a lil tag...and there it is....our 1st challenge card !!



Oh I just loooove this card! That sketch is just awesome!!! So very very pretty!!!! :)


This is great! I need to start on my xmas cards soon...

Sandi's creative touch

Ok Joy You have your card done (Beautifully I might add) and I haven't even started!!! I better get busy!!!



Beautiful, Joy!!! I have this paper stack and the paper are SO YUMMY! Just love how you used them! I like how you used a snowflake punch behind along with the smaller flakes... a perfect combination. Fun little challenge you two have going on.... even if Sandi is a little bossy! LOL! ;)

I wanted to enter "my pink stamper" challenge, but I wanted to do something a little different than everyone else who entered her challenge but didn't have any good ideas.
Then I saw your sketch and card, and I thought "that's it!". So, I tried to do my own spin on it, it's not great like yours, but take a look if you have time.


That's what you need, somebody on your BUTT to get you moving (even if she is a little bossy, LOL). Beautiful card. Love the papers and sketch. WooHoo, girlfriend, better late than never! xxD


Beautiful card Joy. Love those snowflakes and the way that they stand out against your background paper. Simply gorgeous.

Welcome to My World

This sight is dedicated to the art of card making....of which I am addicted ! I began making cards a few months before Dan was deployed to Iraq.I wanted to make sure he had a new card to open every day, so I used BlueMountian.Co and created him 2 months worth of cards !About a year ago I saw that famous infomercial for a little bug called a Cricut.Well, after watching it numerous times, I HAD to have it...and I ordered it!!!Then I found the Cricut Message Board and I hit pay dirt!!! I was, and still am so inspired by some of the talented women on that board!I have to give them credit for making me the card maker that I am today!!!
Thank you ladies, from the bottom of my heart!
I hope you enjoy looking at my cards, as much as I enjoy making them!!!
