Day 12-A Play Day!

Hello! I am so happy you stopped by to visit today!  I am happy to say I am almost finished with my Christmas cards and the envelopes are already addressed and ready to go!  The tree is up and decorated and now I'm working on decluttering the toys, movies, and closets so they are no longer overflowing.  Well, until Christmas anyway...  Sometimes I feel like I'm fighting a losing battle on this!

Today's cards were the end result of a play day.  During my earlier crafty cleaning day, I re-found some stamps that had never been inked before.  They are from Riley and Co. and my blog friend, Kelly, introduced me to them.  Thanks, Kelly!! I ordered a few of them and one was a freebie from Kelly's blog.  These were added to my supplies long ago and I'm just now getting around to using them... sound familiar??  I also used a really fun new product that I recently bought during a little shopping trip.
see the fluffy looking sparkly snow?  That is snow-tex
and I absolutely LOVE this stuff!  Great texture without
too much bulkiness!

Yes, I fussy cut the wreath! I also added some crystal 
effects to the ornaments and bow.

This is my DD's favorite! She loved the cute penguin
making snow angels.

I'm pretty sure my nieces and nephews will love receiving these sweet cards.

Well, I'm off to work and then home to get some cleaning done... Sounds like fun right? Wanna help?? Yeah...didn't think so...  Have a wonderful day and make some time to be crafty!

  7. Yep, I will admit I have uninked stamps, too ! I've used snowtex for years on various crafty projects - and a few cards, too. It sure makes for a fun effect on snowy cards. The snow angel penguin is my favorite , but all three are adorable!
