Today went pretty fast.  It seemed like I sat down  to write some lesson plans for next week and it was already time for Computer class.  As I walked around the room in my various classes, I was happy to see the students using the home row.  It has been a struggle to keep their hands on the home row since bad habits have already started, but I think they are seeing the benefit of using the home row now.  Enough about my day and my wonderful students and onto tonight's creation.

After creating a few complex cards for the week, I decided it was time for a simple one.  Using my trimmer, I custom cut my card base and overlay.  Once those were cut out, I took out my Snow Day stamp set and a few ink pads.  Using the masking technique, I stamped five snowmen in different spots on the overlay.  Once the body of the snowmen were complete, I added a face, arms, and buttons to them.  After completing my snowmen, I noticed I had room for a sentiment so I stamped "Christmas Wishes" in the open space from the Joy to the World stamp set.  I still thought something was missing so I add some snowflakes onto the card as well.  Tonight's creation was inspired from Pinterest, but I changed it to make it my own.  I love how this card turned out and I might have to make a few more since I still have 50 cards left to make before December 1st.  Until next time, happy carding everyone.
