The winner will be announced on my Blog and the CDS blog  Thursday, December 22, 2011.


Linda has a special way of picking the best challenges for the blog hop. I love how it can be taken in any way that you are inspired. This card’s design was actually one I did for the card class at my church this month. I had cut out some trees from a patterned paper and had several small trees left over. Then knowing that the blog hop was WHITE AS SNOW I decided to go with a white theme. So that is how this card was inspired and designed. I then decided True’s digital stamp Paper Christmas Trees would be perfect for this. I used the pre-colored trees in the top two cards. The red card is the outline images printed on patterned paper then cut out. I love when one set of stamps can be used in several ways!! Now that is economical!! The colored cardstock under the snowflake punch is actually on the inside of the card and just shows through when the card is closed. I took the snowflakes that were left over from the punch and scattered them on the card for falling snow. Add a little stickles to give it that Christmas sparkle! The sentiment on the front and inside of the card where printed from my computer before I decorated the card. Hope you enjoyed my version of  WHITE AS SNOW!!
