About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

Christmas in July

Ok, now that the 4th is over, I'm sure there are going to be a lot of Christmas in July challenges this month. I have already made something for 2 Christmas challenges:
1. Lady Anne's Challenges: Christmas Progressive Challenge #6
2. The Paper Players: Christmas in July
3. Cardz TV: Christmas in July

The red and green papers are shimmer papers from DSWV. The snowflake is a plain white cardstock snowflake cut from the Cricut. After it was cut, I added glimmer dimensional paint to it. The ribbon is old and a scrap I found in my stash. The image is from DS4J and colored with oil pencils. I added some iridescent glitter to the snowman in what would be his shadow areas.

It was a simple card to make. The worst part was waiting for the dimensional paint to dry.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.



  1. Adorable card, Miranda! I love the snowman image. The red glitter paper is the perfect touch. Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

  2. What a pretty image this is and I love the snowflake behind the focal image.
    so glad you joined us at the Paper Players this week

  3. Hello Miranda, It is good to have you playing along with our challenge and I love what you have done with this image, I bet it helps when you can receive free images, I had to retired from nursing due to an accident at work and it can be so hard. Thank you for being a part of the Christmas Progressive challenge over at Lady Anne...
    Love ~ Lady Anne xx
