Just Magnolia *67*.....

Good Morning!!
Today is a new challenge over at
Just Magnolia!! And a challenge it was!! LOL
Bev challenged us to use Acetate for our creations!!
My biggest challenge was trying to get a picture
without my own reflection!! LOL


After thinking and thinking I just came up with using my acetate
for an overlay for my card! I also used it for part of
my snowflakes.  I used a snow swirl image in white
on the top.  Thought this card would go cute with some
gingerbread cookies! The heart and cinnamon
stick just reminded me of gingerbread! I will
be happy I have this made up as I always have a
last minute gift I have to come up with!

Papers ~ Basic Grey
Inks ~ distress inks, twinkling h20's
Accessories ~ Charm ~ WOJ, ribbon ~ Etsy



Hope you can play along! I really enjoyed all the cards using
Bev's fabulous sketch from last week!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope
you have a wonderful day!! We are just
relaxing at home today!! I just feel so tired after
vacation!! LOL I always thought that I needed
a vacation after my vacation!

:)Kathy
