Christmas Magic

Inspiration Photo for SSS Flickr challenge #32 by Simon.Says.StampHad fun using my pad of glitter cardstock for the current SSS Flickr challenge to use at least 3 of these 5 colors: pink, aqua, darker blue, silver & gray.  






I used SSS Village dies, SSS Falling Snow stencil, PTI Sketched Stars, Impression Obsession sentiment, Rock Candy Distress Glitter & Memento Teal Zeal.  I waited until daytime to take the picture, but gloomy here today.  I'm also entering The ChallengeThe Playground & SSS Wed.
Changing topics--My sister loves to make cards, but usually only does when we're together.  At my last visit she wanted to make a couple baby cards & had seen a onesie design somewhere.  I pulled up Pinterest & found THIS great tutorial while she hunted down some old printed papers. We didn't quite get them done, so I asked her to take pictures before she gave them to the new parents. Thought you might enjoy seeing them. Didn't they turn out cute?!  Be safe if you're travelling this week.  I work several days but plan to get in some crafting time & blog reading.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
