About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

It's snowing......

Well it is; but only in my snow globe card.

Glitterbabe's challenge for today is to make a christmas card using no red or green.......

Easy peasy........I saw a card similar to this one and I thought it was a great idea.  Who doesn't love a shaker card......?!?!?!?!?!?!

The string of lights is a Glitterbabe original and the best thing is - it was a freebie
Card Deets:
Using my Gypsy and the Joys of the Season cart. I found this great image for a snowglobe.  I cut it out several times and on one of the layers I found a circle image to insert in the middle to make the shaker part.  I also used the packaging from a cricut cart (plastic) to make the window.  Sort of looks like you are looking thru your window and seeing the lights hanging on the outside of the house and watching the snow fall. 
Even my 11 yrs. old said it was a very beautiful card....she saw it sitting on my desk.  She sees all the cards and other crafty stuff I make and rarely says anything.  It truly is way more beautiful in real life.

Until later, snow ladies and men........Gotta split......TFL!!!!!
