Tasting Snowflakes - yummy! :)

Coffee of the Day - Cinnamon Hazelnut

There are 2 fun challenges going on at Whimsy Stamps right now - one on the challenge blog and one over at SNR. My card is for BOTH!!! giggles! The challenge blog says to make a Christmas item, SNR challenges us to try a new card technique - an easel card. Well after seeing the ones I made this weekend, David has decided that these need to be our Christmas cards this year. they are really easy and fun to do! give one a try and you will see for yourself! :) Jana has a great tut over at SNR, so head on over to see. Then you can upload your own creation. If you make it a Christmas card, you can upload it to the challenge blog this week, too! Double duty!!!! whoopppeee! Please be sure to check out what the fabby members of the DT have created for the Christmas challenge. they are all so very talented and come up with the greatest ideas! :)

My card uses the ever fun Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses paper along with this adorable Whimsy Reindeer. Admit it - you have tasted snowflakes, haven't you?! grins!!! The snow is my wonderful chunky glitter and the snowflakes have been covered with stickles. The ric rack is from May Arts. To finish it off I added some buttons and a felt glitter sticker. I am showing you two photos, one of the card opened, and one of the card as the easel. for the easel one, please excuse the darkness of the pic. It is so hard for me to get a good photo at our house with so many trees surrounding it. I love our trees though! :) and a light box is not in the budget anytime in the future. (now you see why I scan so much! grins!)

Everyone have a great day! I will be back with another post later today, so be sure to stop back by.

edited to add - Just announced - a Christmas card challenge going on over at Whimsy Stamps! MAJOR prizes, so head to the blog (links above) to check it out!!!!
