The Library Challenge

I love to read, I love the library, and I love to create.  Therefore, when combined together, three of my favorite pasttimes mesh together.  The Snowman, by Raymond Briggs, is the inspiration for The Library Challenge # 22.   The inspiration can come from the cover, the story, or the title.  The sweetness of the cover and the title inspired me.

Here’s the book cover:

The 30 Best Christmas Books of All Time – The Mission – Medium

Santa’s Workshop DSP

I think I’ve finally learned my lesson; when I see a suite I absolutely love, I need to just get it all.  I can’t wait any more because I seem to miss out more times than not.  The Santa’s Workshop suite, and the speed at which it sold out, finally convinced me.   I purchased the stamp set, and had purchased a paper share for the holiday catalog DSP, so that’s what I had to use.  I’ve colored many an elf, Santa, Mrs. Claus, and the rest of the stamps, which has been relaxing and fun, but having more DSP and the coordinating thinlets would have been so much better.

One pattern in this DSP pack is all about the snowmen.  Love it as each snowman in the repeating pattern is adorable and full of life, just like the cover of the book.   

Here’s my card:

 Since I was using the sentiment “Wishing you everything on your list….” I chose to have the snowman getting the present as my focal image.  This simple card came together quickly with just the DSP, sentiment, and the Poppy Parade ribbon, all of which is in the Suite.
Off to create some more cards

I don’t know about you, but I am still not finished with my Christmas cards.  It’s 12.22, and I am still making cards.  Last year I finished my cards by Thanksgiving, which was wonderful.  I am going to have to do a better job next year.

Thank you for stopping by.  I’d love to see what you created using this sweet DSP, so feel free to post a pic in the comment section.

I hope you all have a very happy holiday season.
