Christmas Card Challenges - #46 Anything Goes


I'm popping in this beautiful morning to share my card for the latest Christmas Card Challenge. Sorry for the delay -- I'm working on getting settled back into a routine now that I've completed my last painting project around the house. (Painting of rooms that is....I have other furniture projects on my list next!) I get consumed when I have something like that to do. I enjoy it and I, also, seem to have a one - track mind. I can't seem to think about anything else when I'm focusing on completing a job. So, the good news is, we have fresh paint throughout the house! Every room received new paint this past year. Whew. I still more "touch up" work but that's not a big deal. :) I'm still considering myself finished. 8-)

On to my card! (Didn't take long to catch you up on what I've been doing while absent from bloggy land.) ;-)

I used PTI Aqua Mist cardstock for my base and used MFT Scalloped Edge dies for the lower portion. The stamps are Lawn Fawn's Toboggan Together set. I cut everything out using my Silhouette and PixScan mat. The stencil is Falling Snow by SSS and I covered it with lightweight spackle before adding on a red twine bow. 

Sad fact about this card -- it was still out on my desk and I spilled a glass of water on it a few days later! Yikes! I'm always paranoid about such accidents and managed to avoid many (if any) in all my years of crafting...seems like a rookie mistake to make, huh? :) 

So that's all for me today! I'm dragging today and making myself knock a few things out. It's either that or lay on the couch (with a little bummer of a headache and sinus issues). I'm trying so hard to ignore it! 

Thanks SO much for stopping by and indulging me a few moments. Hope everyone has a great week. 

God Bless,
