Hello all!!

I know a lot of you are seeing signs of Spring, but around here it has been basically a deep freeze.  On the weekend, I kid you not, it was -51C (for all my American friends that is -60F).  I've heard people make jokes about how cold Canada is, but this time it's true - it is stinking cold here!!!!

Fingers crossed it is supposed to be *real* Springlike weather this coming weekend though - again, fingers crossed :)

With all that said, of course I had to make a Christmas card - what else!?!?!?

Card Ingredients:
Stamps:  KaiserCraft Christmas Card rub-on sentiments
Papers:  Authentique Joyous Collection
Cardstock: Bazzill
Bits/Bobs: random buttons, random star chipboard (I've had it forever!)
Tools: sewing machine


I created this card for the following challenges: Merry Monday - stitching and buttons (country charm), Jingle Belles - sketch




Stay warm and thanks for visiting.  Cheers!

ps: totally *NOT* envying your canadian winter; new jersey is cold enough for me!!! (& by your standards, it's pretty warm, we rarely go below 0 in either F or C!!!) :) :) :)

Congrats on being chosen as the winner of last week's MM challenge. So well-deserved! Love your card with the patchwork star. And it's a great take on this fortnight's JB sketch. Hope I can find some time to play along. -51 is extremely cold indeed! Over here, temperatures don't normally go below 15 °C during the day (today is an exception with 'only' 13 °C) or 10 °C at night.
