One last snowflake card from my December Card class. For the center of this one, I used one of our clear buttons, “painted” the back side with Stardust Glitz Glitter gel and then when it was dry, attached it to the center with a glue dot.
The clear buttons are in the “while supplies last” section of my website. I have also used liquid glass to adhere a piece of paper behind the clear button when I needed something to coordinate with a project. I love their versatility. Order them while you can!

I was looking back at my photos and realized there is a group of artwork that I never shared with you!
I created a set of Clementine cards using the patterns from the Clementine Workshop on the Go bonus project. Instead of stamping the flower images, I used the Cottage Assortment fabric flowers and then stamp my sentiments. I love how they turned out.
FYI, this last one felt like it had too much white space so when I taught my class, I added the mini floral print from the paper and it brightened it up just right!

Some years I long for a white Christmas. This year, not so much. Maybe it is because we have lots of traveling to do. But I do love to celebrate the shimmer of snow with glitter!
Here’s another snowflake card that we made in the card class this week.

That would be my daughter! This year she had the opportunity to show her horse in the Evergreen State Fair. It was a great experience and she did a fantastic job trying events that she doesn’t usually do and adding her love of jumping to the show!
The Dakota paper packet was perfect for these photos. I really had fun with the wood grain paper and love how it shows off the barn feeling. I used the round metal studs and corrugated Milepost shapes (these will be retiring 1/31/31 so order yours while they are still available) to carry out the theme. I scrapped these pages with a smile on my face, remembering the great season we had at the fair.
The “Horse Crazy” lettering and other titles are stamped from the Old World Alphabet. It matched the original sign that I was adapting for my title. (Wild horse feathers website) And it is true…a horse crazy girl will be more than happy to clean a stall than her room.
