"The ideal of calm exists in a sitting cat."------------Jules Renard
I am here with my first post of five (yes, you read that right...5 posts!!) in an all-night crafting marathon!! (Ugh...I am so going to wish I had gone to bed when Little Peach wakes up early!!! Good thing Grandpa and Uncle are home!) This week was nearly a total loss as far as being able to craft. I did manage to get some very last-minute entries into a MFP Oriental Sketch challenge, but that was it. I really was dying to get some more cards done for Jennifer Graces Frosty Festivities linky party which closes in a few hours.
It has been so much fun participating in the 2014 Frosty Festivities and I want to thank Jennifer for hostessing this amazing weekend of giveaways and week of challenges. THANKS, JENNIFER!!!!

I got super-inspired by a number of Jennifer's posts. One in particular was her Jazzing up Old Stash for Christmas Cards. I had some Echo Park holiday collections that were perfect for using. These were from the Winter Wishes collection and I even used the labels to embellish my cards.
Look what else you see that I used in this set.......TAGS!! Now, I admit that these were merely tags that came with the collection, but it still is a breakthrough for me!! Ha.
Here's a close-up of two of the cards:
I dry embossed with the Darice Snowflakes folder and then sanded it to show the pattern. Not sure if you are really "allowed" to sand non-Core'dinations paper, but I did it anyway. Please don't report me to the crafting cops!
I used lots of glitter glue and glitter, and then tied the tags with some plastic raffia-looking twine that matched. These cards will go to the Caring Hearts Card Drive 2014.
I have another set of these Winter Wishes cards to post next. See you in a few.......!
