I'm back

I'm sorry that I've been absent for awhile, but we recently moved into a new house and things are still not going well. It seems as if somethings breaks or falls apart every day and we have new surprises (not happy ones) weekly. God is teaching me a lot of patience and maybe if I would learn how to be patient, He wouldn't have to keep giving me lessons {smile}.

I'm finally able to be a little creative ~ meaning I have finally found my cardstock, computer and printer. However, I don't have much room to work on projects since the work tables are covered with "stuff," but hopefully that will change during the next week.

Since it's Sunday, there's another weekly challenge for you at Christmas Card Challenges. Those Christmas cards will need to go in the mail soon, so I hope you're working on yours.  The theme this week is an Inspiration Photo and it's a snow globe.

The card looks better in person than in the photo (at least I feel it does). Somehow the round piece of plastic that I punched out to create the "snow globe" doesn't show up in the photo ~ so just pretend that you see a shiny, "glassy-like" round piece creating the snow globe.

I used the Winter Song Birdies digital image from Doodle Pantry (the color digi) and fussy cut around the printed image.  I embossed a round circle with a dot embossing folder to create fake "snow" ~ glued the digi to the top of that and then added the clear plastic round. A brown base finishes the snow globe.  The sentiment is also from the Winter Song Birdies set.

Below is the Christmas Card Challenges Inspirational Photo.  Stop by the blog to see what the other Design Team members created this week.

  1. Sorry to hear there were unexpected problems with the new house. Hopefully you won't be finding any more surprises; and will soon be settled and enjoying your new home.

    Wonderful Christmas card. Love the snow globe you created to showcase the sweet Winter Song Birdies.

  2. This is adorable, Heather! I think it's amazing that you could get anything at all made with all the havoc you're dealing with. Let's hope things are DONE falling apart so you can get back to the things you enjoy!

  3. Moving always is an adventure, hang in there! Great card I love the snowglobe!
