Crystal Effects - Card #1

As I mentioned yesterday, I made three cards last night -- one for Halloween, one for Thanksgiving and one for Christmas -- using punches just for the fun of it. Then just as I was about to call it a night, I got out the Crystal Effects (pg 206). Anyone who knows me knows this is one of my very favorite things. And applying it just before you go to bed is a great idea ... it takes a little time to dry thoroughly, especially when you apply a heavy coat.

Santa's Beard Comes Alive

I recently participated in a Santa card swap.  Our fearless leader, Cindy, gave all participants of Sun City's Cardmaking/Scrapbook Club a rather large stamped image of Santa Clause and we were all asked to make a card for the swap.
