Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge ~ Sweet


Welcome to December - meeeep!!!  This month is going to fly by and I am trying to get all my ducks in a row early in the month as Christmas is quickly approaching!  All the gifts have been purchased, house will get decorated this weekend and I actually have my Christmas letter done so I can work on sending out Christmas cards asap so they don't arrive after Christmas like they did last year.

I tripped across this fabulous card on Pinterest the other day and it fit the winter theme for this challenge, especially since I don't have any gingerbread man stamps.    Used Tag Time, Holiday Treats and the Curly Bookplate die by Verve and added a big old snowflake once again - my favorite winter accessory {grin}.

I am actually hoping we do get a bit of snow this year - as there is something so soothing about watching snow fall and then seeing everything covered in a spotless, white blanket before it gets messed up by kids, cars and the like.  Plus I simply adore seeing the deciduous trees outlined with snow and the sparkling snow when the sun hits it :)   Think it brings back many wonderful memories of our skiing years as a family, and having hot chocolate after a hard day on the slopes.

The texture on your card is perfect. I need to do this more often! Keep forgetting about my embossing folders.
