*Running Out Of Things To Share*

Not a good thing....  after today, I have only one card left to share with you!  Perhaps today my Mom, sister and I will have to craft for a bit.  I don't want to leave you coming back to my blog with nothing fun to see!

I wasn't sure I'd ever get all the cards shown this year since I kept showing new ones as I made them instead of showing them in the order in which they were created.

And I am very pleased to report that I have surpassed the number of cards made last year.... last year I did 157 different designs.... and the card I am sharing today is #171!  WOO HOO!!!

I don't have the information on this card so you'll have to hate me if you really wanted to know the details....  I know I used a sketch but I have no idea which one or from where.  The papers are Stampin' Up! Whisper White and some Bazzill Bling;  The swirl is Dot Flourishes by InkADinkADoo, snowflakes are by someone else (LOL), and the sentiment is PaperTreyInk Signature Christmas.  I stamped the images across all three layers in Encore Ultimate Metallic blue ink and then embossed it, I think, in silver pearl embossing powder.  At least I think that's what I did for ink.  And I think those are sparkly brads on the card... hard to tell for sure and I mailed off the original.

So I kinda knew a lot more about the card than I thought I did... but not all of it.  Sorry about that.

I hope that you don't need to hit the malls today... I understand that the malls in Calgary were *very* busy yesterday.  Line ups to get into the parking lots and no parking spaces to be found.  I think I would have turned around and gone home!  I need to head out to get my Christmas groceries today and that's it.  Done done done.  Wrapping was finished yesterday.  Baking is done.  Bring.  It.  On!!!
