Cherish Love

Hi there!
Are you winding down from all the Thanksgiving
festivities?  I had a chance to get into my craft
room last night for some down time.  I came up
with the above card.  This is for the Paper Sweeties
challenge!  Their first card challenge!  All you
need to do is follow this sweet sketch as seen

I love this new Christmas(My Mind's Eye) paper I
recently purchased.  I quickly went to work and got
out my glitter for all the snow and snowflakes.  The
wooden star was painted white and shined up with
lots of sparkly glitter!  Gems were place on the
snowflakes and ribbon to finish off the card.
Paper Sweeties have some darling sweet stamps!
Do go on over and check them out!  And, if
you have time, join in on the fun and create a
sweet project with this fun/easy sketch!
Well, it's time to take down all the fall decorations and
get out the Christmas ones.  It will take a few
days for me to decorate the whole house, but
it certainly gets me in the spirit!  Whatever you
do today...take care and have fun!  Thanks so
much for dropping by, hugs!
