world card making day challenges

world card making day was today! yahoo! i almost made some scrapbook layouts, i had to stop myself! lol!

anyway, did you see that lawn fawn is having a little challenge to celebrate world card making day? the challenge is to create a thank you card AND send it. i am definately guilty of making cards and then saving them! i don't know what i save them for! ha ha! anyway, we just moved across town into a house and i made this card for my father-in-law who helped us move! he came all the way from california to help, so he definately deserved at least a card! lol!

i am also submitting this card in the lawnscaping challenge - create a project celebrating world card making day! :)

anyway, it wasn't hard at all to create a thank you card with lawn fawn stamps, they're amazing! lol! and in this card, i used 3 different lawn fawn stamp sets (critters in the snow, making frosty friends, and many thanks).

i heat embossed with clear, the background of the card. i love how it the clear embossing powder looks on the white cardstock. especially since this is a winter scene, i think it adds to the 'snow' effect. at the bottom of the card are little pom-pom's that i cut off of some ribbon i had. i adhered them on to look like snow balls!

the snowman and penguin are paper-pieced and popped up for dimension. :)

well, that's my card! i hope i can get crafty even more tonight! once the short people go down for sleep that is! :)
