It was a beautiful day

It was a beautiful day to be on Mt. Hood snowshoeing with my husband and friends! The sky was blue and the trees were bundled with snow. We went on a short jog that took about 1 1/2 hours. It was 24 degrees up there!

Christmas Gift Card Holder

Stamp With Trude
Here is another gift card holder that I created using Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper.

I used Be of Good Cheer paper and a piece of Real Red cardstock. The ribbon is Gumball Green Stitched Ribbon.

You can use this cute little purse (gift card holder) for other occasions. For what other occasion would you create one? These are so quick to create!

Bootiful Occasions Christmas Card Stampin' Up! greeting card by Trude Thoman
To make the card base I used Bashful Blue card stock and sprayed it with Smooch spray to make it sparkle. Then I used the Snow Flurry Big Shot die by Stampin' Up! and the Bootiful Occasions stamp set.
 It is hard to see the sentiment stamped down in the right hand corner because of all the sparkle sprayed over it. The sentiment says, "Warm winter wishes down to your toes".

the Bootiful Occasions stamp set is a fun set from Stampin' Up! It has 4 different boots with sayings. I will be sharing the cowboy boot card I made.
