Snowflake Card

While I was browsing the Silhouette Store Tuesday morning a week ago, 
a card design by Lori Whitlock caught my eye. 
On her website, it's part of the Christmas Card 2 set (bottom right corner). 
Today's card was inspired by that file.

This card was very simple to make. To be honest, it was pure luck that the chevrons 
and blue snowflake strip lined up as perfectly as they did. 
The chevrons are from the 6x6 paper pad by 
Echo Park Paper Co called Winter Wishes
I used the EK Success Punch Dotted Scallop Edger on the chevron paper. 
For the snowflakes on the dark blue card stock, I used the Martha Stewart, 
Punch All Over the Page Nordic Snowflake. 
Sorry, but I couldn't find a decent link to post for the punch.

Thankful for You Card

This is a card I made using Martha Stewart punch Crochet Star 
on creme card stock with a kraft paper base. 
The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Thanksgiving Wishes set (one of my favorites!). 
I also used their Flag Dies for the "ribbon" the sentiment sits on. 
The leaves and acorns are cut from BoBunny's Apple Cider collection,
 and the page I used was called: Apple Cider Autumn. I finished it off with a little bling.

Christmas Ornament

This is one of my favorite ornaments that I have made so far. I made this ornament a couple of years ago using ribbon and fabric. I love the colors together. I will have to see if I can find the ribbon to make more.

Lack of crafty time... :(

I have to admit, this semester has been a lot of stress and work. My last 3 semesters were part time (6 credits total) and now I'm full time. This week I have 3 tests (one I have to take at the school) on top of my regular school work. I hope (crosses fingers) that I can plow through 90% of it tomorrow and only have the on-campus test to take Saturday so I can be crafty. It's amazing how much you miss it when you can't do it. *sigh*

Meanwhile, this is the awesome scarf my husband is knitting me. I taught him the basics and he ran with it.
