Suede Snowflakes

A nice weather day here is St. Louis. I had some errands to run & driving around with the convertible top down always makes it so much more enjoyable.

Today I participated in the Featured Stamper challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. I just love all their challenges...oh yea, I blabbered about that on an earlier post. Today the FS was Shannon. She is a fantastic stamper and so nice too. I chose to case her Rustic Merry Christmas. I kept the design and the holiday theme with the ornament. I changed the colors, used different papers, added the 3/4" circle, eliminated the hardware & used my new Stamper's floss from The Angel Company.

I'm pretty happy with this card & may make several duplicates since it isn't too heavy for mailing. What do you think? Are the colors "Christmassy" enough?

Have a great week, friends!

Love the colours ! I love the feel of a "homespun" Christmas and that's the feel I get from your card. I know you really have to take in account how much weight/postage these Christmas cards are going to amount to ! Kinda hard mentioning cruisin' around with the top down and Christmas isn't it ! ;o) Tracy
