Thomas the Train Happy Birthday

My grandson celebrated his third birthday today.  His parents planned a "Thomas the Train" party, and I found the perfect chipboard designs with which to make a card.  Even though we had a lot of snow (see photo of our house below), we had a great birthday celebration.

It started snowing around 7:00 p.m. on Christmas and snowed all night and part of the next morning.  We had not had snow on Christmas in North Carolina since 1947!  According to our trusty measuring gauge (a ruler), we had about six inches of snow at our house, enough to cover the lawn, shrubs, trees, and house!

One Last Card!

My daughter bought me some Fancy Pants Christmas paper (which I used for an anniversary card).  I've  finished all of my cards and finally used the Fancy Pants paper to make a Christmas card for my daughter and her husband!  Merry Christmas!
I entered this card in the Wee Memories Challenge #36, Colors of the Season.

Last Minute Christmas Cards

This year I made several different cards for my family and friends.  I used a variety of Christmas papers, stamps, dies, and of course, bling!

Red and White Christmas

Update:  My card was chosen as one of the winners of Craft Your Passion Challenge Blog Challenge #37!

The challenge this week at The Shabby Tea Room was to create a Scandinavian Christmas card.  I have a huge stash of Christmas papers, stamps, and ribbons and two new toys--a Cricuit cartridge that cuts snowflakes and a Spellbinders poinsettia die.  I decided to make a criss-cross card using a variety of red and white papers, a lot of glitter, rhinestones, and yards of lace and ribbons!  I also found a SU brad in my Valentine's stash that was a perfect topper for my snowflakes.  I then hand delivered the card to a special paper-crafting friend in my neighborhood.  Enjoy!

I also entered this card in the following Christmas challenges:  Craft Your Passion Challenge #37Paper Playtime Challenge #30Sugar Sweet Paper Treats Christmas Card Challenges #3Creative Inspirations Challenge Blog #49, and Critter Sketch Challenge #45.
