Oh! Christmas Tree

Hello Readers!!

For today I am writing on behalf Make My Monday Challenge Blog. Our challenge this week is 'Oh! Christmas Tree'. You can interpret the theme however you'd like. Here is my take on the theme. Enjoy!

Double embossing technique creates a very nice background. The snowflakes were die-cut out of soda cans! The largest snowflake is a Coke can inside out while the
red snowflakes are from the same can just right side out. 

Our theme for this week:
Oh! Christmas Tree
at:


Detail showing displaying the large snowflake popping off the card.
This type of card will be given in a box because the tin snowflakes are so fragile.
Here in the U.S.A. we are all gearing up for Thanksgiving.. A day to give thanks for all our blessings and stuff ourselves silly (at least I do).. Eight years ago we took our newborn son, David, home on Thanksgiving. Having made no food our neighbors made Thanksgiving dinner for us. I will never forget that moment and for that I am thankful.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. And do hope you can hop on over to Make My Monday and play along. If you'd like to leave a comment that would be great. I do enjoy reading what you have to say. Until then, see you at Make My Monday!! Take care!

All the best,
Shawna
