As I was thinking how I would use Mojo Monday Challenge #273, I heard our neighbors in central Pennsylvania were getting snow at the rate of an inch per hour. That made me think "'s cold outside". The blue paper with an array of different snowflake patterns is the perfect background. The blue scalloped circle made with Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge flower at 3 1/2".
The sentiment is computer generated then cut out using the 2 1/2" Stampin Up punch.
Someone had given me the Dept.56 icicles which came in a long strip so I cut the desired length needed, glued in place, then adhered the blue paper strip, white ribbon and bow. Snowflake is made with a Martha Steward punch, covered with" icicle" Stickles, let dry completely then attached with a pop dot. 
Inside of the card reads   "but thoughts of you warm my heart."
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you and yours a very blessed 2013.

Christmas Cards

These Christmas cards were designed using Mojo Monday Challenge #272.
I began with a 4x6 card from white cardstock then adhered the patterned paper that measured  1/8 inch less in length and width.  Next, I cut a  solid color rectangle, attached  the Holiday Beads metal charms, ribbon and bow.
These cards were given to my bosses and a co-worker at our office party.
To you and yours, a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Holiday Card-Mojo Design #269

When I first chose this patterned paper, I was not sure the pink would work for a Christmas card. I added pink and red rectangles bordered with cream paper to make them stand out more. The green behind these rectangles is the top of the patterned paper.  The poinsettia was fashioned using the McGill Blossom making kit. I edged the leaves with darker colors using copic markers and added gold beads to the center. The sentiment is a 2009 Stampin Up rubber stamp.
