two for tuesday, a day late!

rain rain go away, come again another day. we are waterlogged. streets are flooded. yard is a muddy swamp. (sigh) The good news is I get to play inside all day on my craft!!! yah! So, while watching afternoon soaps and doing laundry, I found some time to make these 2 cards. I always start with a sketch. Santa comes from Lord Have Mercy #45. Pulled out my stash of Christmas papers and realized how little of this very old CTMH paper pack I had and wanted to use it up. All matchy matchy in color scheme. The stamp is CTMH- night before christmas, the sentiment is $1, clear g studio, large brads complete the card.
I love this card! It is so sparkly IRL! Kris gave away some old Reminisce papers, which I gladly took! The background swirl was actually a 12" circle (like a large peppermint candy) that I was able to make 2 large cards with it, cut down to size. The ornaments are stickers that matched this set. Silver stretch thread wrapped around, Peace on Earth (SU! set) finish off the card. It took like all of 10 minutes to make this card! LOL!! Isn't it elegant, so sophisticated? Someone really special, ONLY, is going to get this card! Oooopss, almost forgot.... the challenge completed is Colour Create Challenge #30: all white. Yup, it is!
