MOJO201: EP Christmas Card

Used the MOJO Monday sketch 201 from Verve to whip up a VERY quick Christmas card using my Echo Park "Everybody Loves Christmas" scraps.
The base was 4.25 X 4.25.
After photographing, I added Stickles to the red hat and the snowflake background.

I chose the square card for my project:

Papers: Echo Park
Ink: Distress Peeled Paint
Other: gingham ribbon, Cuttlebug Swirls

Thanks for looking and thanks for all the get well wishes.
After almost 2 1/2 weeks, I have finally fully recovered from the horrible stomach virus.
No idea where it came from. 
No one I know had it and I certainly hope no one else got it.
Nice to be crafting again, playing with the boys and completing housework (yeah right).
Happy Crafting!

SSS, BG47 & 2Ps: Out of Print card

I recently bought some of the YUMMY Basic Grey "Out of Print".
WOW!  This is just a beautiful line. 
I stamped the HA flower on two diff. patterns, then layered and embellished it.
Made my front panel out of various patterns and distressed the green CS panel.
I felt that it needed a sentiment so I made a banner with "hello" and stitched the top.
