Am done!

So I am finished - not literally - just mean I have finished making my cards so am feeling quite smug - but what am I going to do now? Iron? Dust? Clean windows? Put up the christmas tree? Definitely not!!!!
Haven't decided about the tree this year - didn't bother last year as didn't feel like Christmas at all after losing Mum and it being her birthday on 31st Dec and all and confess that this year am still not feeling christmassy despite all the glitter and snow dust etc that's all over the craftie space desk and floor....
Might get down the small fibre optic one for the dining room so at least when OH and I are eating our turkey it looks a little bit like Christmas... am still considering!!!
Thought I would share this card with you as it's already been received and opened -
I adore these K and Co Winter Wonderland papers. So much so that the stack I bought two years ago still has half of them left as I hate cutting into them! They'll be a collectors item if I keep them any longer but don't be surprised if I'm still using them in 2020!
The 'snowflake' is actually cut from the sheet and I just used 3d foam pads after adding some sparkly gems for a bit more bling!
The blue antique lace layered across some red cardstock is from my stash as is the red organza ribbon and red satin Christmas tree.
The sentiment is a freebie from TLC and I cut it out with a nestie, then sponged it with Tumbled Glass distress ink, punched a hole and added an eyelet making it into a tag. I ran a glue pen across the letters and dusted some red glitter over it.

Challenges -
Jingle Belles- Christmas
Card Mad Fairy's Digi Days - Tags (and I hope my tag on my card fits the challenge)
Crafty Calendar - Cold and Frosty
Sugar Creek Hollow - Tags

So with my cards finished have to decide what project to start next... maybe I'll make a couple more for next year???? LOL
Thanks for visiting - have a nice day whatever you're doing.

I really thought you had made the snowflake from material! Love the two colours together and that sentiment. Might not have a tree ourselves this year as it is up in the loft along with the decorations and hubby can't go up there after his op nor me with one hand. Hugs Valeryanne (aka Mrs A. )
