Winter Wishes...

Are you keeping warm these days? It seems like a cold winter coming... and early too! Even here in the SF Bay Area, we have been getting pretty cold temps...and starting to get snow in the Sierra! Well, I've trying to stay warm during my craft time, which is usually in the early morning or late night, with a blanket on my lap... feel like an old lady!! hehee!

Anyways, my daughter and I started making some more holiday cards this past weekend. Some for friends, and some for the Cards that Care drive. DD colored about 6 images, and me just one... and we ended up with only one complete card each...lol! There were alot of "Mom, can you/should I ..." throughout the whole day between her and DS! (DS was working on a LEGO project.) Okay, enough rambling on... here's my card...that took nearly 4 hours!!
This is a darling SOG girl named Tia with her adorable penguin friend! Did you know that I LOVE penguins?! not so much in RIL... but cute adorable images!! I HAD to get this adorable image when I first saw it here on Amy's post. SOG current recipe challenge is to use 2 patterned papers, buttons, punch/die, and NO white/kraft for base card. Followed a great sketch from The Sweet Stop, and made a festive holiday card for Papertake Weekly!

Paper is from BoBunny's last year collection "Winter Joy", a MS border punch, and a Recollection tag punch stamped with an AmyR sentiment. Added a BG button and some twine. Stickles to Tia's earmuffs and along the tag. There you have it... four hours of work! LOL! but it always worth it to spend some FUN creative time with the kids!

I'll be sharing DD cards soon... she wants to finish up on a couple of more. She says it's really stressful to put it all together! but enjoys oloring of the images much more! ummm, that sounds familiar... hehee!

Thanks for stopping by! ;D
