Shopping our Stash #82 - Winter BUT...


We have a fabulous challenge up for you this week at Shopping our Stash - and with the holidays fast approaching, we have 2 weeks to work on it! For the current challenge, we want to see your winter themed project, BUT:

Winter, NOT HOLIDAY! 
snow, mittens, penguins, polar bears, sled, fireplace, hot cocoa, snowmen, etc.

Personally I think it would be a perfect time to work on those holiday thank you cards, or perhaps you know someone celebrating a birthday soon? That's what the card I'm sharing was purchased for - a December birthday card.

Supplies: paper from October Afternoon; pearl strips found in a box while I was looking for something else (score!); snowflake quilled by me :)


I used a Nestie to trace very lightly to have a guide for placing the pearls in a circle. 

This challenge is open for two weeks, until Monday December 31st, and don't forget to check out what everyone else has been up to!


I have a rather busy day ahead getting cards in the mail, getting cards ready for the 20 teachers & staff the boys want to give cards to, and anxiously waiting to hear how Connor's talent show rehearsal went. He performs on Thursday, and he is SO EXCITED he can hardly bear it. He's doing Thriller. Seriously. 
xoxo,
Jessi
