This is the card that started it all! This was my first attempt at the color challenge yesterday. The colors were Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla and Basic Black. I thought it would be neat to have reindeer flying over trees that were sparkling from a recent snow storm. As you see the main image layer is a lot smaller than my last card, but I still like the effect. Tomorrow I will have an “in color” version of the card. I made it using the Speckled Background technique and it has to be my favorite card of the season. Check back because I know you are going to love it too.
Yesterday we baked Alton Brown’s Day 1 of the Food Network 12 Days of Cookies and they are fabulous! I try to put away an even amount and have 3 dozen stashed away for the holidays. Colin and Evan also let me get in 45 minutes on the treadmill before they started fighting over the educational computer games. I think I was ready to fall asleep by 7 p.m. considering I took them outside for a 30 minute walk.
