Happy December! I am so excited that it's here! Looking at what's coming up this month I can either think it's going to be crazy and busy or I can choose to think how excited I am to go to several of my children's Christmas concerts, to spend time with family and friends while fitting in everyday life, a partime job and Christmas shopping! Yesterday while blog hopping I "discovered" the December Daily by Ali Edwards. I had seen several of you do it last year and thought it was cool. Yesterday it hit me that I should do it. Here are my reasons: We have a lot going on in December it would be nice to document it! ; We have a lot going in in December I SHOULD DO IT!; I haven't scrapbooked before so it would be a nice way to start and have something for my kids; Chad loves Christmas so once this is put together I think he will love this too; I have A LOT of supplies and an cute album too! I don't know how I get myself into these things but now that I have decided I am doing it! God grant me strength! I will be back tomorrow with my first page. I would like to say that I am going to be blogging everyday my pages but lets not kid each other! Plus I have discovered that the light for taking photos is gone by 4 o'clock!
Yesterday the Hero Arts Flickr group had a 90 minute scramble, and the challenge was a one layer Christmas card! I thought for a bit and than remembered that I had been planning a winter version of my birdie card. If you remember I made a summer version here and a fall version here. I didn't want to make the winter version until after we had snow, which we do now!
I stamped the tree branches and birds the same as the two other cards but colored it differently. Than I added liquid perfect pearls for snow and added some glitter on top. I thought it was fun to add snow to the birds backs! After the liquid pearls it came to me so stamp some snowflakes and with it being a 90 minute challenge I couldn't wait until the perfect pearls dried! So I stamped it and only smudged one spot! Love this card! I very much enjoyed making them all! A spring one may be similar to the summer but I think I will have to make it!
Well I better run! It's late over here! Happy 1st day of December to you!
