Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! Such a snowy day here and we are still snowed in. Tomorrow we plan to venture out to visit my folks. I can hear snowmobile's going by the house. Since Wednesday night I have been a bit under the weather... lost my voice, coughing, chest congestion, aches, chills, etc. I hope this passes soon! :)
This holiday card was so much fun to make... plus a square card! That's different for me... ha! This card was for my sweet blogging friend Lisa at The Craft's Meow. I put a few elements together, followed a layout in the Paper Crafts Magazine, added sparkle to the snowflake, which is hard to see in the photo. (Click on it to get a closer look!) In real life you get a better feel of the card and the gold ribbon is sparkly too. ENJOY!

Have a super weekend... any after Christmas shoppers? Some good deals I bet...

SMILES... Michelle :)

Michelle, this is a card after my own heart! I really truly love cards that are busy and have LOTS of techniques involved! I love the stamping and the texture...I really like the glitter too! I looked up close and personal and that is just too cool! Thanks for the inspiration. I am going to have to go play with the stamping and texture technique again soon!

Oooo la la Michelle! Love all the great stuff going on with this card!! I had to click on it for a close up of that sparkly snowflake. Love the flourish, texture and all the great details you added. It's a real piece of art:))
We had mostly rain last night as our temps stayed in the 30's. Just a bit of snow today but we will be colder so the wet may turn to ice. Expecting snow the next to days but not a lot. Merry Christmas!

And I LOVE my card... my very own Michelle original, to add to my other treasured cards from a treasured friend. Which reminds me, I still need to post my Christmas cards!

I'm so sorry you had the crud right around Christmas. That is so NOT fun. My New Year's resolution is to keep up with my friends better!
