Pals Paper Arts Challenge / Freshly Made Sketches

Thursday, November 1, 2012

I am playing the Pals Paper Arts Challenge and Freshly Made Sketches together this week:-)

PPA146 November 1

Such a soft and pretty color combo, and what a fun sketch! 

Another Christmas card done!
I wish I had the Peekaboo Frames Bigz Die, but it is on my wish list so I used a razor blade to cut those windows myself...ha ha:-D One of the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack was used to make those little openings to lift the windows up. 

This cute little Jingle Bell is from last year's Holiday Mini Catalog, it actually jingles! How cute is that!? 

This is probably going to my baby sister and her family, the kids would love those windows! 
Although cutting the windows was a bit of work, I really had fun making this card:-)
