Here is my first card, now it is fall and it is starting to get pretty cold in Indiana - yesterday morning when I was leaving the house I looked at the rooftop of my house and noticed snow, then during the day while at work in Chicago - I saw snow falling outside my window. So I figured why not make some snowflake cards, now I love glitter,but I don't like glitter all over the place specially on my face - somehow it always ends up there, so I decided to use my martha stewart ink pads in blues and added a little to the first card you see here - for the snowflakes I used TPC Studio Winter Blues Sticker Sheet, used Tim's liquid pearls in blue to add all the little blue dots you see - the border is from the same sticker sheet and next to it on the edge of the card I decided to use the new silver paint from Martha Stewart & Plaid paint. It's hard to really see all the details and silver paint on this photo, but I was pretty happy with the end result and well I decide to make this a Thank you card - something you can use after the holidays to give thanks for that special gift you received or the dinner invitation you received.

I really hope that you like my cards, I had a lot of fun making these as I went along - I made all these in a couple of hours - took me longer because I decided to use paints for these cards. I really don't paint on card stock unless I'm making paper jewelry out of it. Actually painting the tree took me back to my early years as a kid - painting on paper with tempera paints.
