House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #85-Aperture


Yes, we had a little snow at Gwamma's house last night and I had to call Cole and his Mama to alert them to the road conditions on their way here today. Cole was excited and anxious to see the snow, but probably not so much his Mama.  I can just imagine Cole peeking out the car window trying to get his first glimpse of the white stuff!

Challenge #85 at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge is aperture. (an opening somewhere in your card).  My top sentiment Happy Holidays is really inside of this card. I used a nestie to cut the circle to show the sentiment.  This card turned out completely different than I originally envisioned, but totally cute I think!

I used a Martha tree punch as well as some Martha coarse glitter for the snow. Such a sparkly effect.

It was fun to get back into my crafting room, even for just a short time. Although it is pretty darned messy, I managed to "eeeeek" out a small space to create. I hope you can join us for this fun challenge...you have two weeks.Let's see what you can do!
