Pierced Snowflake

I gotta admit. I was looking for a reason to paper pierce this gorgeous snowflake and when I saw Sara's Sketch #13, I knew it would be perfect.
This is my first Christmas card of the year. They've really been popping up a lot on other stamping blogs. I always admire people who start their Christmas planning early and are completely finished shopping by December 1st. Me? I am one of those who wait until Black Friday to start and then find myself not having the time to finish all my grand plans. And what about those people who shop all year long? I can't even think about Christmas until at least fall. So, here is my 1st Christmas card. Enough babbling already.
Supplies:
Stamps-Snow Flurries & ? (peace? for some reason this set has no name on it and I can't find the name)
Paper- Bashful Blue & Night of Navy CS, SU DP (old stuff!)
Ink- Night of Navy
Accessories- Paper piercing tool, White Signo gel pen, Giga Scalloped circle punch, CM Circle Cutter, Creative Impressions snowflake brad, SU oval punches
I made 3 cards yesterday! And I finished all my housecleaning, etc. I was pretty pleased with my day. I put my 3 new cards up on my bulletin board among other creations from days past. when my hubby got home I asked him if he could pick out the 3 cards I had made just that day. Do you think he could?
WELL.... He did! I was so happy. I gave him a bug hug and told him I was happy that he does pay attention.


So, I will be back later today with another of Sara's Sketches. Go ahead try one!!!
Hugs, hugs and more hugs because
I feel like stampin'!!

Angel, this is so, so pretty! I just love paper pierced cards. The little peace set came in the holiday mini last year. I'll get back to you with the name of it (computer in a different room from the catalog). Thanks for sharing such a beautiful card.
