2017 was a year filled with bumps & dents. I know you can restart at any time, but there is such hope of a new beginning with the New Year. I have spent some time over the past few days coming up with my stamping goals for 2018 & THE main thing is to actually get cards in the mail. I have other goals, but getting cards in the mail on time is my mail goal. This card is going in the mail for a birthday for the first week of Jan. I may not get every card all year long in the mail on time, but I'm feeling excited about the first card!! LOL
There was no stamping on this one, the die is from Poppystamps
Yes... I'm still making Christmas cards. I know.... sigh!!! I have the greatest of intentions to get all of them mailed, I haven't gotten to the point where I'm just giving up. This is for the Dec Penny Black & More challenge.
Stamps: Penny Black
c/s: white, red, black

On Dec 8, we received a tiny, tiny bit of snow.... only if you looked really closely & if you saw it before it was on the ground very long. It melted & didn't accumulate. The weather forecast is wonky for this next week... one day is supposed to be 73* & then Christmas Day looks like it might spit a little bit of snow.
At the beginning of 2017, I set a goal to use 52 different House Mouse stamps. (I have been collecting them for 20 years, so I have a few. *cough* *cough*) Now, as 2017 is coming to a close, I'm a little short of my goal. You may be seeing more House Mouse cards before the year ends!
I made this for 2 challenges: The VSN theme at SCS is "Game Night" Angie's theme was a game I had never heard of called "Masterpiece" She gave us 5 different masterpieces to get inspiration from. The one I chose was "Paris Street; Rainy Day by Gustave Caillebotte, 1877". You can upload until Dec 17th, so come play with us! I combined it with the current Color Throwdown
Stamps: Confetti Showers House Mouse
