I made today's card to play along with the current Lawnscaping Challenge #96 - Merry Christmas! To create the card I used Snow Day Petite Paper Pack for the background and I cut vellum and white glitter paper with the Forest Border Lawn Cuts to fashion snowy mountains. I added white embossing paste to more vellum and cut tags with Tag, You're It Lawn Cuts. Finally, I used stamps from the Snow Day stamp set from Lawn Fawn and added them to the tags.

I had a lightbulb moment thinking how I could create a shaker card using vellum so I used the cute snowman from Chill Out stamp set from The Alley Way Stamps. I think I accomplished what I set out to do. My plan is to enter my card in the BE Inspired Challenge #60 hosted by The Alley Way Stamps!

I suppose that if Santa considers pilfering the plum pudding from the table before the other guests have a taste as naughty, then Christmas Chris from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps, is guilty! Guess who is only getting coal in his stocking this year!

My card today features the Lawn Fawn Trim the Tree stamp set along with the Trim the Tree Lawn Cuts attached to the background that I cut using the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables Lawn Cuts. I decided to go all white so I could enter the current Lawnscaping Challenge No. 95.

Welcome to Scrapy Land Challenge #7. The challenge is Anything Goes using a brand of die that Scrapy Land sells. For my card I used Memory Box Winterland Tree. I first cut the die and embossed it with silver. I took the negative and added white embossing paste to blue cardstock. Once it was dry I adhered the die cut and added a few sparkly gems. Be sure to visit Scrapy Land Challenge for all the challenge details and to see what the other members of the design team has created and play along with us.

It is with a very heavy heart that I share with you the news of the passing of my youngest son, John Anthony on November 4, 2014. John was only 37 years old and spent most of his adult life fighting the demons of drug addiction that took his life. John had a very loving heart, always willing to give all that he had to those in need. It was not uncommon for him to approach a total stranger and give them a compliment just to see them smile. If you met John, he considered you his friend for life.
