finally. . .a card!

So for those of you who have wondered where I've been the past few months, I've been around--just not getting a whole lot of cards made or participating in many challenges.  We are finally making progress on finishing our basement, so I hope to have a dedicated crafting space very, very soon.  My son also stopped taking naps a few months ago, so my free time is practically nonexistant.  I did make a card today for Kazan's sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You:

I didn't make a tag, but I did make a tag-shaped card:

I used my computer to print "let it snow" repeatedly on cardstock.  I then embossed the cardstock with my Cuttlebug snowflake folder and highlighted it with some silver ink.  I used a Thickers frame and painted it silver.  The snowflake is a Sizzix die cut which works for 365 Cards Day 300 - Let it Snow (create a paper snowflake for your card).  Some ribbon, stitching, and showflake brad complete my card.  Thanks for looking!
