Sensational Scenery

I was doing a little playing around with chalk, I think this card came out pretty good for playing. I took a piece of scrap paper and cut it into a good size circle. Then placed the circle on top of my card in the desired spot. Took a cotton ball rubbed in white chalk and rubbed it on the edge of the circle to make it appear like a luminous moon. (Pretty neat, huh?!) Took the pine tree stamps from SU Sensational Scenery set and stamped them accordingly with bliss blue. Dabbed the edges of the trees with a glue pen and applied Stampendous Crystal Snow (glitter). Which you can't see very well in the scan, but it does look nice. The card stock is also SU bliss blue. The sentiment stamp used is from the SU retired set called Christmas Cardinal. It reads 'Wishing you a never-ending season of peace'.

Snowflakes Card

Hi everyone,
I know it's been a while since my last post, but I have to say that I've had a pretty busy summer so far. I had surgery and am doing well. After the healing process, my family and I took a long needed and deserved vacation to Darien Lake NY. We had a blast.
Anyhow, seeing as how it's a little on the chilly side today, the spirit of the holidays came over me. So I made a snowflake card. The card stock is SU retired bliss blue. I used a lot of Stampendous Class O Peels (the little snowflakes). Also used are a few Robins Egg dew drops and some glitter. I couldn't figure out what sentiment would go best so I just left it without one.
