My 1st Christmas card of the Season.

Today was a stay at home day, but guess what I didn't get to stay at home.
I promised Kristy that I would take her to the mall. As it turned out all my girls came.
We had lots of wet snow this morning. Like I said a day to stay home.

After the mall, we did stay at home the rest of the day. And I made a card :)
I saw this idea from http://valitasfreshfolds.blogspot.com/.
She left her flower insides empty. I put embossed velum in mine.
I am really happy with how it turned out.
I punched these flowers out with a tiny punch and used a nut picker thingy (not a scrapbooking tool, LOL) to roll it and form it.
You can see how it has dimension. I guess this is a hand delivered card ;)
Onto my day:
I slept in :) love the weekends for that.
Went to the mall. Kristy wanted to show me some things that she would like for Christmas. We do this every year, then I go back and pick what I want to get her from her choices. The thing is she didn't see anything that she wanted. The other 2 did though. I wanted to check out some more colours for my markers, but forgot.
I made this card. It took longer to do then it should have. But I was working upstairs and had to keep running to the scrap/craft room to get supplies.

This is an early post for me as "The Walking Dead" is on tonight and I don't want to miss one zombie :)

Hope you Sunday was a day spent with family and some crafting thrown in for good measure ;)
