Guest Designer Monday with Jodi

Just one more day left until Christmas...are you all ready for the big day tomorrow or are you running out today to do some last minute shopping?   I am done shopping but have a LOT of wrapping to do...and cookies to make!  

This past week has been full of adventure....we had a really bad snowstorm with blizzard warnings, the kids got a snow day (fun) and we lost power (thankfully it was only for a few hours).  Then to top it off, after our power came back on my computer decided it was done and will not turn on at all...I knew it was coming, but was holding out as long as possible to replace it although I "think" Santa will be bringing us a new one ;)  In the meantime I am making due on my daughter's laptop (when she isn't on it).  

For my first card I used Sadie in a monochromatic color scheme:
I kept this one pretty simple with embossed paper, some ribbon, twine, a button and snowflake charm.  I'm thinking I may use this one as a winter birthday card but I'm not sure, so I didn't add a sentiment.

My second card uses James:
I wanted the card to say "Wishing you a Cool Yule" (because James is just too cool in his leather jacket) but I didn't get it printed before we lost power so, I decided to look through my stamps and found something similar to that.  I love the brown snowflake ribbon I found in my stash just adds the right touch.  

Well, I'm off, lots to do to prepare for Santa's arrival.  I hope you all enjoy the holiday with your family and friends!  

Merry Christmas!
