Well, it was a very sad day for me. We took down all of our Christmas decorations today. I LOVE Christmas! My husband thinks I go overboard, he's fine with just having a Christmas tree. If it were up to him, we wouldn't even have a tree though. I have to say it was much easier taking everything down than it was putting it all up, only because he was helping me take it all down. It really does make me sad that Christmas is over. I almost cried, especially trying to fit the tree back in the box!
He would've made me do it sooner but we've been frozen in for the past few days. We had some bad weather this week. Everything was frozen, work got cancelled, everyone was urged to stay off the roads. It usually happens once a year here. Since the kids are still home on Christmas break we all got to spend some quality time together. Well, for the first few hours, then it was non stop complaining of boredom after that. I did manage to make my first card of 2015! My next door neighbor is having a baby girl tomorrow and I decided to make her a card. I finally got to go shop for a gift today also. Everything thawed out yesterday finally.
I really like shaker cards. I don't know why I'm so obsessed with them but I am. So, I made her a shaker card. And I really enjoy coloring so I try to add a little coloring to my cards. The image is Newton's Nook Designs - Winged Wishes Stamp Set which I colored with my Spectrum Noir markers. I added lots of "baby" colored sequins and the paper is the Baby Girl Stack from DCWV I bought at Michael's. I also made that huge envelope to go with it. I need to work on envelopes, or buy some I guess.
Hopefully, I get to work on some Valentine's cards soon. It will be here before you know it. I'm also going to be working on Christmas all year so I'm more prepared than I was this past Christmas.
