SANTA IN SEPTEMBER

Hi all!! Sorry, don't have another page I can show you yet, but I hope to be able to share what I have been working on soon!! So, I am going to share my Santa in September card (well, one of them) that I am teaching in my class this afternoon. I am excited about today - I have such a fun group of gals coming over, and we are making 15 cards, three each using the same set. So, this is one of them! I am using my new set Snow Swirled - it is gorgeous, I love it!!! And, I finally cut into some of my new DSP from my preview order of the new mini (love it!!) called Frosty Day - isn't it purdy??!!! I love it, the colors are right up my alley and just perfect for winter! I kept it simple since I am making 15 different cards, but I am still quite happy with how it turned out - sometimes simple is good, right? Anyway, I will leave you with the recipe as I have to finish the kits, take Kayla to a soccer game, and get back in time to have my class tonight - whew!! I hope you are all have a fantabulous weekend!
