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.

Black and White Christmas

This card is very simple to make and doesn't take much time. The hardest part for me was picking the papers.

Card Base: 4.25" x 5.5" Very Vanilla Card stock from Stampin Up

Next layer: Plain black cardstock from Michael's.

Next layer: Digital Hounds tooth and digital music notes digital paper from Granny Enchanted. She has lots of great digital papers and elements. Stop by her site and check her out.

Snowflakes: Cut from Black metallic card stock from Recollections using the Snow Friends Cricut Cartridge.

Sentiment: Computer generated

FCCB: Name That Tune
Paper Play Time: Use 3 different Papers
Created with Love: Christmas Snowflakes

I hope you have a great day!
