An overdue hello, and JB:13:06

Greetings to all my friends out in blog-land!!  I hope you all are doing well, despite how winter seems to be hanging on tightly here in the Northern Hemisphere!  I can't believe it is 9 days until my birthday (and this year, Easter), and the COLD just keeps coming!!  BRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!

Well, I am hoping that Lauren and Stef will be willing to accept my entry into this week's             Jingle Belles challenge, even though I made it right before my craft area in the hallway was dismantled several months ago...  :)

This card didn't turn out exactly as I had envisioned it, but I really like how it turned out anyway!  I seemed to be having a love affair with craft and white at the time, as I have a couple of other cards following the same color scheme.  :)
While I'm here, I thought I would also share some pics of my craft room how it looks right now...

The last pic is of "some" of my craft stuff all in a pile right outside of the me there is more in other places in the house (ie. my older daughter's room!). 

Take care until I post again!  :)


ETA:  I wanna link this up at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long also...Anything Goes.

  5. I'm not usually a fan of kraft cardstock, but I really like this combo you used. It looks quite elegant and I really like how the snowflakes really stand out. Thanks for playing with CSAYL.
