Warm Winter Wishes...a Birthday Card!

Yesterday was Christmas and for us (hubby & me) it was a nice relaxed day. We had our family celebration on Saturday, so we had a nice quiet day: church in the morning with the little kids doing a wonderful, exuberant Christmas program (!) and a simple, quick brunch afterwards, then friends came mid-afternoon and we played cards, ate supper together and played more cards. SO relaxing!

On Christmas Eve day, however, I was busy creating a tutorial for a DT I am on. It is the StampingScrapping Techniques and Turtoials website : http://stampingscrappingtutorials.ning.com/ . But it is one that requires a monthly memebership fee (small) and has lots of perks BESIDES many, many great tutorials for paper-crafting, such as discount codes for the www.stampingscrapping.com online store, first chance at sale items, and monthly specials just for members.

So here is a card I made for my sister-in-law's birthday next week.


It is made almost completely with items from the StampingScrapping store. The only things not from there are the pearl drops in the flower center and the tiny roses. Those are from my friend MariLynn in Iowa who made them herself and sent them as a wonderful surprise gift to each member of our former DT.
(Thanks again, MariLynn!)
