Switchin' Gears....

Lately, I seem to be hopping between Halloween cards and Christmas cards. I guess today it will be Christmas! I used a Crafty Secret's Creative Scrap paired up with Basic Grey, vintage music paper, and Kraft card stock. I did a bit of distressing and sewing too. Last year I made a bunch of these vintage "sugared" snowflakes. ( Don't know if people would be interested, but I was thinking of doing a tutorial on how I make them? What do ya think? )

I tied a SU! button and flower to the center with twine and added it to a pretty Papertrey ribbon. I always feel these final touches are what make my cards complete! : )


No school for Cort today. This means she is spending the day.....all day..... at work with me. She really thinks she owns the school......cuz she will spend the day wheeling around, peeking into people's classrooms. And the highlight of her day? Eating lunch in the teacher's lounge. Yep...she is a real big shot! : ) I just hope the students receive her well. I never know what to expect. So, wish me luck! Off to get us both ready!
Have a FABULOUS Thursday!!!!
