Wintery Day!!!

We finally got a blanket of snow .......... it was the most beautiful site on the way to work yesterday.......... everything snow capped and picture perfect. This week flew by at work... back to new and exciting challenges. Have I told everyone lately how much I love my new job. Yes I'm still with the Municipality but a different position. I can actually say that I enjoy getting up each morning knowing I am heading to a job that I love. So thankful I took that leap to apply for the Learning and Development Assistant position in the HR Department. It is sooooo easy to fall into that routine comfort zone and not try different things.

Made this card for my BFF Tracy...... as we always exchange cards and gifts at Christmas. Decided to create something I do not normally do and that is cut out images. It was basically a very simple card ...... stamped the spruce tree branch then covered with MS glitter for the snow, then stamped out the ornaments on chipboard and cut them out, added some glittery silver bonbons from Stampin Bella, white ribbon bows all mounted on white with mirrored silver card stock and some gorgeous glittery DP.
Head over to Tracy's blog Buttons Ribbons and Pearls and see the most perfectly water coloured Christmas card made for me!!!! Thanks Tracy......and yes I am still staring at it.....
