Happy Holidays

Hello and happy New Year! I can't believe it's been almost two weeks since I posted on my blog. I work in a doctor's office and we had some shut down time for the holidays and I took that opportunity to go to Texas and visit my children and grandchildren. It was an amazing visit but back to reality. LOL. Today's card was created for the latest Cas(e) This Sketch  card challenge. I am a huge proponent of recycling and every year when I'm discarding the Christmas cards that were sent to me I try to look for ways to recycle them. I will die cut panels from them or fussy cut images out of them so that I can repurpose them onto new cards. It's a fun challenge for me and it also helps prevent more waste filling up our nation's landfills. So, to create my adorable little snowman card I started by fussy cutting those fun little guys from a card that one of my aunt's sent me. Then following the sketch I layered some real red cardstock from Stampin' UP onto my white A2 cardbase. I then die cut a panel of white cardstock using a stitched edge rectangle die from Gina Marie Designs and mounted it onto the red cardstock. I cut down some fun patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye's Oh What Fun 6x6 paper pad and layered it onto the card panel following the sketch. I adhered the fussy cut snowmen onto the circular die cut panel using some foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives and stamped the sentiment from the My Favorite Things Cheerful Christmas Greetings stamp set to complete my card. I hope you like it and thank you for visiting my blog today!
