Back in Business

We’ve had a wonderful Christmas in our house. We’ve met up with family and had some fun playing games, exchanging presents and eating loads of delish food. Today we’ve been alone playing some more games (I’ve become a Master Mind addict!) watching the DVD J got from grandma, and played outside in the snow. We’ve got plenty by now and it’s good cause we’re off skiing tomorrow. Wohoo!

I’ve been making some cards too. I set a goal to finish all the 365 cards this week, but I don’t know if I’ll manage. Here are three of them anyway.

First is day 298 – Running in Circles. This one is also for Sketchy Colors – they had a lovely sketch this week.

Grattis Jonathan This is the birthday card I made for J – he turned 9 on Christmas Eve. The circles are made with acrylic paint and different sizes of lids – Pearl maker, Pro marker, Zig writer.

Day 300 is making a snowflake. I hope this counts, it ended up more like a star, but the intention was making a snowflake…

December 4I found a tutorial for the snowflake/star on Swescrapbook blog: HERE. It’s easy and I love how it came out. The beautiful sentiment and stars are from the Shepherd Snow Family from Firecracker Designs.

I’ve used the same set on the day 301 – I’m torn-card. It’s a thank you card from my son, and he was to choose stamp. He knew exactly what he wanted – the cute snowman.

December 5 The snowman is paper piecedand it’s a lot of stickles on this one. The card is made with the help of this weeks’ Friday Sketchers Sketch. They also have a blog hop going on – go check it out!

Phew! That’s all for today. Have a lovely Saturday!
