I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I'm finally back! I haven't been able to post in over a week! No sooner did I get started with blogging, real life called me for a bit and I'm just now getting back to creating. I had to take a brief trip to MA to take care of some family matters and got stuck in that freak snowstorm that dumped about a foot of snow on Cape Cod! Then, this is what I woke up to this morning:
Not a very common site back here in North Carolina!
Anyway, I have a couple of cards to share. The first one was made for the Teapot Tuesday Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. You can read all about this week's tea party here
. We are sending our cards to fellow teapotter, Kris (krischir) who had surgery on both her wrists/hands this past week. Here
is Kris' story.
This is the card I made for Kris:
I hope my "masterpiece" makes her smile!
For my layout, I went to this week's Card Positioning Systems

My next card is for today's Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoast (FS203). This week's Featured Stamper is LeisaJane.
I chose this beautiful card of LeisaJane's to CASE:
Here is my card:
I used the Faux Window technique which was Video Pick #2
in the StampTV Top 10 Favorite Episodes.
I brayered the night sky and sponged around the snow drifts. I added some stars to the sky with a white gel pen and some Polar White Flower Soft to the trees and snow drifts. The sentiment was embossed with white embossing powder.
