Christmas Home















This is a card I had a chance to make this weekend while it was pouring rain.  It was nice to have something to distract me while Roger constantly checked the sump pump to make sure it wasn’t going to burn out.  The grass has dried out and I got it cut last night.  There was so much there and we were growing our own little mushroom patch as well.  I looked outside on Sunday and thought the kids whiffle balls were outside the fence, but after looking a little closer they were mushrooms at least 10″ in diameter. 

This card was for the Featured Stamper challenge and this was the card I chose to CASE.  I kept the layout, but changed the stamp set, colors and omitted the dry embossing.  I just love this image and it was so much fun to watercolor, but it did take me quite a lot of time.  I don’t know if you can tell but I used Dazzling Diamonds to make my snow nice and shiny.  Glitter is so much better viewed in person. 

Happy Wednesday!
