but it is my chief duty to accomplish small
tasks as if they were great and noble."

Calendar Girls December Challenge

Our hostess for this months Calendar Girls challenge was Kelly and her challenge was as follows:

Blessings to you this DECEMBER! Since we post the 28th of the month, Santa will have returned to the North Pole by then and it will be a wee bit shy for the New Year Growing up in Europe where winters where filled with the beauty of snow and all the splendors of ice, I am filled with joy when I see all things snow. While some of you may long for sunshine and warmth, here in Miami I miss all of that during the holiday season so for this month so let's live vicariously in your creations of a

Picture snow-filled winter trees, snow nestled on park benches, fountains and tree branches ... ponds frozen over, icicles in the pine forests ... there is snow-filled glory all around us in the winter I would love for you to use blue and silver on your cards and a snowflake(s) somewhere on your card via paper, design, brad, etc!

I made my card earlier this month at my stamp club and thought it so was cute, I had to share it.  I love, love, love the snowflake embossing folder from SU!  Image and sentiment are both from SU! as well. 

Please stop by all the Calendar Girls blogs and check out their winter wonderland creations.  See my sidebar for a list of their blogs.  Thanks!!!
Happy New Year!

December Dueling Darlings

I am finally here for this month's duel...9 days late...but here.  Life has been crazy to say the least.   Our hostess, for the Dazzlers this month was Michelle and she sent a wonderful kit with silver cording, silver ribbon, self adhesive snowflakes, some awesome designer papers and a wonderful Whippersnappers image called "Snow is Overrated." 

I used white, Bravo Burgundy, and Not Quite Navy cardstock along with my icicles border punch.  I colored the image with my Copic markers and added the great designer paper, ribbon, silver cording and snowflakes that Michelle included in our kit. 

I am sure you have already checked out the other Darlings blogs...but in case you haven't see my sidebar and go take a look.

Merry Christmas!
