One last Christmas Card...

OK, I think this just might be the last Christmas Card. Not sure I can pull another one out this year! This one is non traditional colors as well. I tend to stick to the old standard of red and green, but this week, I've started to stray. I'm ready for spring I suppose! LOL!

I used the great sketch from Cardabilities...

 And the beautiful colors from OCC.

I used some of the Candy Cane Designer Fabric I bought off the clearance rack! I just love this stuff. Sewed it randomly on to the card. The felt snowflake is from the Christmas felt kit in the Holiday Mini. Lots of layers on this guy!

I cut the Pretty in Pink striped ribbon in half and tied it around. I love doing this to the striped ribbon. In fact, it's the only way I seem to use it anymore! I glued the button and the snowflake onto the bow with Crystal Effect. Did you know you could use that as glue? It is the worlds strongest glue! Seriously! That's all I use it for these days. I might need to glue my children to the wall before the break is over... I would definitely use this stuff to do it to make sure they stayed! ha! ;-)

Hope your having and GREAT Wednesday!
