Snowflake Wreath

This card was made for the challenge on Splitcoaststampers,  CAS299. The challenge was Simply Snowflakes. I do have two snowflakes placed in my arrangement.  

I'm using this wonderful Sarasota Stamps Vine Wreath that was found on Amazon. The company is now out of business. Someone told me they found it online at Wal-Mart, also. 

The berries are painted on with the small end of my round stylus and some Americana acrylic paint...just dabbing it on.

I added the sentiment and all was finished with this one layer card.

I'll probably not be around for a week or so. My son is visiting and his wife and child, along with the other two grandchildren will be here starting this weekend. So, I'll be a busy bee for a while. 

I did put up my two Christmas trees today and I'm so happy that is finished. What a job!!!

Vine Sympathy

Unfortunately, I need a sympathy card for a very sad occasion. I hope this card can somehow give some comfort to the family receiving it. 

I also made this card to fit the Featured Stamper challenge on Splitcoaststampers/FS406. The featured stamper was Audrie aka girlgeek101 and I cased (loosely) this card.

It was simple...just cut the dies and sponged inside the smallest with the three inks, added the sentiment, and then the flourish vine.
