What………..not a Christmas Card

Once again I sit here in disbelief that I haven’t done a blogpost since December 8th.  At least it adds to evidence that I feel like I have been in a non-stop tornado for weeks.  It should be slowing down now, but I am gearing up for my trek south for the winter, so it is still a whirlwind for me.

I wanted to make a few cards as samples for Scrapendipity before I left.  It felt good NOT to be making a Christmas Card.  I thought I would make a couple of cards with the add ons from the December Hero Arts Monthly Kit.  The main kit while lovely, would not be on my personal favourites list.  I did like several of the add ons and had a hard time just picking a couple to be sent with my kit.

The one I am showing here is the World Window Fancy Die.  I wanted to make a Valentine’s card that wasn’t too “pretty” or mushy.  To achieve this, I stuck to earthy colours and reined in the bling (ok just a bit).  I really like the outcome.
