I hope you are all having a fabulous day! Although the sun is shining, it is very chilly here these past couple of days, and not suppose to warm up any time soon. Unfortunately, this is normal seasonal weather for us here in North-Western Ontario. It beats the humidity of summer though, lol.
In honour of our chilly temperatures, I have a Christmas card to share with you today, but I guess you knew that by reading the title. I am also VERY EXCITED to share some good news with you; I am so honoured to have been picked to join another Design Team!!! This Christmas card I'm posting is my first card of my new position for CRAFTY CARDMAKERS. This is an awesome team of some very inspiring ladies who I am so excited to be working with. Our current challenge, hosted by the lovely Lin, our DT Coordinator, is
Lin would like to see some stitching, either hand, machine or faux on your project as WELL as some lace, real not faux.
I love to stitch on my cards, and lace is right up my alley. I had a lot of fun making this card up for Lin and the DT.
