Thinking of You

Today I sat down and made a card to play in not one, but TWO challenges! Coulda knocked me over with a feather. It's been so long! Here's what I made:

And here's what it was for:

  • My friend Pam's Just Punch It challenge, which is all about punch art. Her theme this time around is Winter Blues. I built up my blue winter wreath with punches from Martha Stewart's pine bough punch, with another MS punch--this time a snowflake--in the center.
  • Simon Wednesday Challenge, which is Ice Inspiration this week. I thought the icy finish on these iridescent sequins was just perfect for this challenge!
I also used some of my beloved DeNami Design stamps to make this card: Medium Double Circle, Medium Thinking of You Circle, and a sweet little heart from the Whimsical Valentine stamp set.

Both of my kids will be off from school tomorrow for a teacher in-service day. Looks like I'll have company for lunch ;). We have plans for the library and just hanging out here at home. That will be nice!

Thanks for visiting!

Happy New Year Emily! Looks like you are off to a great start. Love your pretty wreath card with the sparkly sequins. That MS punch is one of my favourites. I have worn one out and the second it getting a little wonky. I keep a spare just in case! lol
Thanks for sharing your lovely card. :)
