From the Heart : Sisterhood Challenge

This week's challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters is From the Heart (meaning your creation must have a heart on it). I took the opportunity to get started on my aunt's birthday card, as I will be flying out to see her this weekend for my annual trip. I also used the Mojo Monday Sketch 277 for the layout inspiration.

Some of the new Raspberry Ripple and Vanilla made this card simple, yet lovely, I think. How about you?
We just enjoyed a weekend in Jasper with friends...and I have to say, I felt like a champion. My snowboarding skills felt like they were actually coming together quite well again....and it looks like we'll take a trip to Lake Louise in February for some fun on the hill. Can't wait!

Winter : Sisterhood Challenge

The first Sisterhood of Crafters challenge for 2013 is a Winter Themed card or project. I figured since I didn't send out any Christmas cards, maybe I'd use this as a chance to catch some of my friends while it's still cold out :)
Loosely basing my card on a truly inspired card by Maureen which I received for Christmas a year or two ago, I created this simple card with some Verve and PTI goodies, as well as SU! ribbon. The snowflake is some Michael's adhesive shimmery paper.
I quite like how it turned out :) It's been a busy start to the year, but I'm really going to try to at a bare minimum, participate in all of the Sisterhood challenges. Hopefully I can find time and mojo to do a little more if only I could get some cleaning and organizing mojo, too..that room is a DISASTER!
Check out The Sisterhood and show us your wintery creation!
