Welcome Christmas ~SOUS Die Cut Challenge Snowflakes~

Welcome Christmas

 Oh I sincerely hope you all had an incredible Christmas! Myself, I am a bit in shock that it is here and gone so quickly. I think as we get older, or maybe it's more of having a family that all the family activities, the baking, the gatherings, etc make the time go by much more quickly. I wish I could just sit and savor the days. 

 I haven't been much in a blogging mood lately and really haven't crafted too much this season past classroom gifts for the teachers and Christmas cards. I did manage to make those this year. The blogging part though has been pushed off. Thank goodness for Stuck on U Sketches or I'd be a complete loss...

 Here is my card for our SNOWFLAKE, Die Cut Challenges at SOUS

 I'll admit that I may have thought this a better idea in theory then in actual terms. I do love how simple this card is but with the detail. But the time it took to trim and pop the center pieces of the snowflakes...oh my! Not for the weary, I tell you! =)

 In this photo below you can also see that the foreground was embossed with a falling snow embossing folder. I would have loved the have embossed the top portion but with the cuts and delicacy of that it would have been too hard.
