Flourish and Flakes

I made this card with two challenges in mind:

Christmas Card Challenges - Week 7 - Flourishes

Fantabulous Cricut - Challenge Me Monday #94 - Snow Fun

I cringed all the way through this card. I just finished with Christmas and now, well here it is again. I have anxiety issues from all you other bloggers. I am never starting my cards in time and visiting everyone's pages I get reminded that I'm behind. Well hopefully with all your reminders and inspiration I can get through another year of crafting.

I made this card using Cricut cartridge 'Celebrate With Flourish' and used my Cuddlebug embossing folder for some added flourish for the background. I cutout the bow and added my own to go along with the Snow Fun challenge; which was to use a snow flake or snowman or woman (equal opportunity crafter here) Seeing that I had already cast Christmas aside for now, I tried to fool myself by using non traditional colours. I am yet to stamp the inside, but somethings can wait till we get through summer.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to visit, please take a second to click one of my adds so I can offer blog candy in the near future. I appreciate you stopping by and all the comments.

Christmas is only 342 days away, I hope you enjoy my card,

  7. Teehee, Colin! I am the same way! Sometimes, where there should be inspiration, some entries just intimidate me & make anxious.. This was especially true when I had to go back to work after having my baby and couldn't craft/ blog as often! Thanks so much for playing at CCC! Your card is fabulous and I love your flourishes!

  8. I kept telling myself that rather than putting my Christmas crafting supplies away I should make a card a week and then I'd be way ahead come December! See, you're on your way. Thanks for sharing your delightful card with us at FCCB.
