I am a creature of habit and ritual. I have this Penny Black stamp- Cuddle in Snow-circa 2005! Needless to say it has been retired, but not for me. This stamp gets pulled out and I make a Christmas card for my husband every year with it. It took him about 5 years to realize that I was using the same stamp ,just a new design.
This year I paired the snow couple with a new landscape dies and a Tim Holtz snow fall embossing plate. To add shimmer I used glitter paper for one hillside and added glitter to the snowfall. I kept the card clean and simple and surprisingly sentiment-less.
Since one of my New Year plans was to enter more challenges, I am entering George's card in a few challenges.
My girls at Just Us Girls have word theme this week- Winter. My card is all about winter!
The Friday Mashup has a winter theme with snowflakes.
Curtain Call has a photo inspiration with the theme of Winter Wonder. My colors might not be those rustic creams and browns but the card is all about the "wonder of a winter romance".
Lastly CAS on Sunday have a few weeks left for a Christmas challenge
It's fun to be stamping for no good reason and I hope to be able to show you all lots of cool things over the next year. I am presently working on Valentine cards and will show off some in the next month.
Be sure to check out these challenge sites and show off what you are doing.
