Episode 181 ~ Snowflake Christmas Card

Snowflakes are falling my friends!
Greetings from chilly New Jersey... I am so excited that I spent most of my day yesterday in my craftroom! Don't you just love those kind of days? I know I sure do... Another favorite thing of mine, is using embossing folders on cards. They really add alot of pizzazz & they aren't very exspensive at all. You get alot of bang for your buck!
If you haven't already purchased the DCWV Christmas Combo pack & the Christmas Homemade paper pack, I highly suggest putting it on your Christmas Wish List. These are my favorite holiday papers!
Have a wonderful Wednesday, over the hump we go ~
