This month's challenge was difficult for me. I seldom use DSP, but this sketch seemed to need it. Fortunately, I had a couple of sheets of paper that I was able to use.

The four children with Santa are my grandchildren; the oldest is 12 years old and the youngest is 3 months. Life is good.
The picture is attached by using a corner punch that makes a slot for the picture to slide into. A great punch to have.

Aaron made this card for her friend, Lee. She experimented a bit by layering the "love" thinlet is both Cherry Cobbler with the Crumb Cake. I like the look.

Similar card, but I sponged the background colors. I like the sponged look much better; it looks smoother.

Update: After this was published, I took off two of the four little flowers on the top.
The Window Box thinlet dies are quite versatile. This card uses the hexagonal floral die that could be used for the box for the negative cut. I used stamps (Simple Shapes) to color the background, but I had to use markers and a blender pen to blend the colors. I will try sponging the next card.

Patrick is in sixth grade this year, so this is the last year I will make his classroom valentines. However, Jakob is in kindergarten, so I get six more years making his classroom valentines! 😄
This year, Aaron bought boxes of Jolly Rancher chews. We covered the box with scraps of designer paper, punched out the hearts, and stamped the heart on the front. Easy as could be. With 60 to make, Aaron liked the idea of simple.

I found the paisley embossing folder at JoAnn's. The card just flowed together after I knew what the base was.

I love the falling snow stamp. The Merry Tags coordinated with the round punch to give the color. Great coordinating set!

My neighbor Scott has been taking care of my sidewalks. When he snow blows his walks, he does mine also! I made this for him and put a gift card for a great local restaurant.
