Desperate Measures...

First off, a very Merry Christmas to all who celebrate this holiday! I hope that no matter what your beliefs are, you are surrounded by friends, family and joy!

So now as my family sits on, glaring at me for blogging on Christmas day, I must share this quick card that I just created! I was a bit desperate as all my scrapbooking stuff is in Saskatoon and I am not! But I scrounged my mother-in-law's house and found some crayola markers, glitter glue and glue stick from her teacher's stash, computer paper, scissors, some recycled packaging from one of my daughters gifts, ribbon found on my other daughters present and using the beautiful Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz stamps that my son gave me for Christmas I was able to create a last minute card to give to a family who was cooking us Christmas day dinner.

The background was made using the clear part of barbie packaging. The images were made by coloring the stamps with the Crayola markers, stamping them on plain old computer paper and cutting them out. I used a glue stick to stick everything on.

The snowflakes were adhered to the outside of the card and the snowman is adhered to the inside. I distressed the edges of the snowman piece with the markers as well.

I then tied a piece of present ribbon around the front cover and added some Crayola glitter glue to the center of the snowflakes! And there you have a desperate measures Christmas card!

Happy Holidays to you all!


  1. I am very impressed with your ingenuity! I enjoyed stopping in at the store last night -- both for the goodies I picked up and for the conversation around your tables. Thank you for the well wishes as we prepare to relocate to South Africa. :)
