merry and bright


So I literally whipped this up this morning…
I have tons of stuff to do but I just wanted to use that Savvy Stamps Vintage Truck.  I teamed it up with the Impress Large Snowglobe.  I managed to make it a shaker…do you see my early morning sewing?  Don’t try this at home!  I used Stampendous Crystal Snow and it’s quite literally snowing…everywhere.  Evidently it’s leaking from my sewing…so today, I’m going to be covered in glitter.  I’m having lunch with my Mom and ex-MIL so let’s see if they say something.

Hopefully you challenge junkies spot knew right away how I was inspired:

I’m also linking up to the Muse challenge:

  2. Such a beautiful card! Love the colors and the fun background. Laughed out loud, however, when reading that you were inspired by the sentiment of Jenni's Muse card and realiszed that you weren't talking about the occasion but the color scheme of the sentiment. ;o)
