Winter Village

Hi everyone! Did you miss me? Hahaa! I have been busy doing some baking and also some Christmas shopping as I need to get my box ready fairly soon to send to the family in Japan. I want to be sure it reaches them by Christmas and so I usually send it to them by Thanksgiving. But in between baking I did make a few simple card designs as well so I am sharing one of them on this post.


I cut out a piece of blue card stock with a single stitch die from the Memory Box Blueprints 29 set and then I took some white acrylic paint and mixed it with a bit of water and then lightly tapped on the brush to make some snowflakes. Next I added the Winter Village die by Frantic Stamper Inc. and used a Zig 2-way glue pen to add it to the blue panel. This was all mounted onto a white card base. The finishing touch was to add a sentiment from Gina K. Designs.

Now I love this look and this is another clean and simple but still very lovely design for quick Christmas cards.

I hope all have been doing well this past week and that all remembered to turn your clocks back. That was our last task of the day Saturday night before we went to bed. So our clocks are on time but my body is out of sync again. It always takes me awhile to adjust after we change the time.

Thanks for the visit and for the comments you always leave. I love hearing them.

God bless,
Verna

Verna, I love this card; I am always a sucker for blue (especially this hue) and white.
My philosophy is: I don’t care what color, it is; so long as it is, blue!!!
Have a blessed week, much love.

Wow! It sure is beautiful! Love the details, Verna. I can see you scurrying around with your shopping and baking, and feeling excited about shipping your fruitful results. Thanks for sharing your pretty creation. xx

That's such a striking shade of blue, Verna, and it looks amazing with the white card, white scene, and white splatters! I love this!! And I hear you on turning back time and how my body reacts. It takes me a good week to even out. I don't find it happens as much in the spring, oddly. Hugs, Darnell
