Warm Cozy Snowflakes

I love this snowflake stamp. It makes me think of a warm, cozy sweater every time I see it.

Very simple card today - I stamped the snowflake three times and then filled in some of the empty spaces left on the outside edges. I used my quilter's tracing wheel to create some faux stitching along the top and bottom sides and then matted it on a piece of navy cardstock.

I added some blue rhinestones and the sentiment and called it done. This is going into my Christmas card stash (the ones that I have yet to send out :P)

Thank you all for your comments on my last post. We really enjoyed the Nutcracker - the production here in Pittsburgh has some wonderful references to the City incorporated into it and its great to see the story set 'here'! On Saturday we went out to cut down our tree and we'll put that up tomorrow.

My husband and I celebrate our anniversary tomorrow and despite a difficult, scary, stressful year have decided to carry on our own special Christmas tradition. Since we were married so close to Christmas (which I love) we give each other a gift each day from our anniversary to Christmas. It really is a lot of fun and helps to extend the season! I usually am not one to share too much of my personal life, but you gals really do mean so much to me I feel like your good vibes will help!

On that note, I wish you a wonderful evening and I'll be back tomorrow with the Serendipity Stamps Design Team challenge!
