I'm dreaming of a White Christmas......



Yes, I am listening to Christmas music as I post today. I have been working on some Christmas card designs and needed a little inspiration. Actually a little bit of the white fluffy stuff sounds good right now as we have been in a heat wave here in the Midwest. It is 93 degrees and extremely humid today. Thank goodness for air conditioning.(at least until the A/C bill arrives. :) )

My card today is inspired by DeNami Designs new Elegant Floral Circle stamp. This is a beautiful stamp! I look forward to using it for cards and gift tags as well. I also tried a new pleated ribbon technique from my friend Paulina. If you click here you can view her ribbon tutorial, she does an awesome job teaching this technique!

If any of you are going to be in the Chicago area July 30 & 31st make sure you come to the CHA Craft Supershow. It is definitely an event you won't want to miss. There are hundreds of vendors and make and takes. I will be working at the DeNami Design booth #706 so if you get a chance to come please stop by and say Hi!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Make sure you visit the DeNami Design Blog on Tuesday for a new challenge.

Have a blessed week,

Laurie :)

  3. Laurie your card is very pretty! I do like the ribbon effect, so I will be checking out Paulina's ribbon tutorial. I will be attending CHA on Friday. I look forward to seeing you and Denami again and meeting Paulina. In the meantime, keep your wonderfully inspiring cards coming.
