Winter Wishes ~ Mojo Madness #63

Happy Monday!  Only 17 more days until Christmas!  That means only 11 more days and my kids will be out of school for Winter break!  It also means visits from family, Christmas concerts, shopping, decorating and baking like a crazy lady!  Sometimes I really wish that I had more hours in my day to get everything done and still have some time to relax, but as hectic as it gets, I still love this time of year.

I made this card for Julee’s Mojo Madness Contest.  I love her sketches they never fail to inspire me!

I used all TCP stamps again for this card, they are so much fun!  On the larger shimmery white mat, I did some 2nd generation stamping with the large snowflake. I used it again on the white middle band and embossed it with iridescent embossing powder.  I stamped the image and sentiment on the same shimmery white cardstock and coloured it in with sharpies and Spica pens.  The shimmer on this card really does not show up in the picture, but it reminds me of a crisp, sunny winter day!  Here is a second picture, I think the simmer comes out better.

Is it too late to be good?

Happy Friday everyone!  It has been a busy week here for me with work, getting ready for Christmas and PAC meetings at the school.  I finally got a chance to play this morning with a bunch of new goodies that I picked up a little while ago.  I don’t seem to have a problem making all of my Christmas cards, I am just slow at sending them out!

Here is a close up of the tree, I just love the bling!

The design for this card was inspired by the sketch over at CPS, it is almost the same, just altered a little bit but not much.  I stamped the new Cat’s Pajamas set, Deck the Hall, in Versafine and coloured it with prismacolor pencils and oms as well as Spicas and Sakura glitter pens.  I then added mini rhinestones for the lights and yellow Stickles for the star.  I used Ruby Red liquid pearls in the corners after punching them with the SU! ticket corner punch.  I used the snowflakes from the same set and embossed them with iridescent glitter embossing powder to create an subtle background.  I punched the snowflake out of DCWV’s glitter mat stack with my EK Success snowflake punch and pop dotted it up and then added a rhinestone to the middle for a little extra sparkle.  I also embossed the sentiment with red embossing powder to help it stand out more.

I am going to go and clean up my playroom and then maybe start working on getting my cards ready to send.  I will make some hot chocolate, turn on the Christmas music and watch the snowfall, if that does not get me in the mood, nothing will!  I hope everyone is having a great day and thanks for stopping by!
