Christmas Wishes - PSC 88

Hello friends. Thanks for stopping by.  We've had some sickies in the Cat House the last couple of weeks, but hopefully everything is under control now.  Casper got some meds on Monday and I was actually able to give it to him in a syringe without much of a struggle last night. I watched what the vet assistant did to give him the meds and did the same thing and it worked great!  Corey gets to go to the vet next Saturday for a couple booster shots for him and then I hope it's just normal life with no visits to the vet even though they are very nice and caring.

Getting on to the business at hand.  It's Wednesday and time for another Perfect Sentiment challenge.  This week we've made it pretty easy for you.  The theme this week is to make a Christmas card, but don't use any red or green.  Easy right!  I was so glad to do this card because I'm so far behind in getting my Christmas cards done.  It was a little hard in picking the colors to use for it, but I think it turned out pretty well.
Materials Used:
  • Image - Tracey Malnofski's - Happy Happy Snowman
  • Sentiment - Stampin Up - Joyous Celebration
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up Bashful Blue; Xpress It Blending Card; Shimmer c/s - don't remember where I got it.
  • Designer Paper - Stamping Up Frostwood Lodge - Background and Diagonal Strip - my stash
  • Accessories - Lace from Wild Orchid Crafts; Bling from my stash; Cricut Frosty Lace cartridge for the snowflakes; Stamping Up small oval and large oval punches; Nestabilities Large Oval Die and Big Scallop Oval Die; Blue stickles; Spica Gel Pen - Silver
  • Copic markers - B0000; B000, B01, B12; E11, E13, E18, E21, E50, E51, E53; Y11, Y13, Y18, YR01, YR02, W0, E3, W6, W7
