Sunday found me running an errand and then preparing to go to my husband's charity event. The event went fairly well and the money raised will certainly go to a good cause. I would recommend if you are ever in the area of 7th street and Carefree highway, go visit the restaurant called Peaks and Valleys on the southeast corner. The food is very good and the people are so friendly. All in all it was a good weekend.
My card for today reminds me of the grid cards I have shared with you before minus the lines. This one has a winter theme and makes a cute Christmas card.
To begin this card, I started with a Whisper White base card. I added a layer of Garden Green to that with rounded corners and then added another layer of Whisper White with rounded corners. Before adding the top white layer, I laid out my grid by marking the lines in pencil very lightly. Then I added a drop of Stickles to each corner alternating green and red. I let this dry completely before continuing. Once it was dry I added my little snowmen, one for each box. This happens to be a set of four snowmen I found at a hobby store. Once I stamped all of them, I colored then using colored pencils and adhered the layer to the green. Then be sure to erase your light pencil lines marking the grid. This can be done now or once the glitter glue is dry.
Here is a closer look at the snowmen. Aren't they cute? I could not resist buying this set when I saw it even though it is not a Stampin' Up! set. As you can see they each have their own personality and are just ready for the snow to keep on falling. They bring a Christmas wish to each person who receives this card.
Well, I have a busy day ahead and need to get moving. I am afraid I will not finish all I would like to if I keep talking. So for now, I wish you all a wonderful day. Please come by tomorrow to see what I have to share next. Until then, thanks for dropping in today.
