Sketch # 10 on the x-mas and b-day cards blog

One December festivity is over ( Sinterklaas left for Spain again) and charging the batteries for the second one. The girls were having a great time last Friday on Sinterklaas evening. There were a lot of great presents and candy and our livingroom was completely covered with toys all weekend.
Now it's time to get rid of some old toys to make room for all the new ones. After we've done this we will start decorating for christmas this weekend. For a lot of you girls it's late, but we're glad we can relax for a few days.
Because it's was a crazy week(end) I only had time to make one card/project for this weeks sketch on the Just Christmas and Birthday Cards Challenge.
This weeks sketch is mad by Kristin and I wanted to make completely different. A few weeks back I bought 2 great big snowflakes for decorating the christmastree, but one of them ended up on this weeks project.
One of our DT-members, Mada is so sweet to donate this very sweet stamp for one lucky lady entering this weeks challenge. Normaly we only have a monthly prize, but because it's almost christmas she wanted to spoil someone.

Don't forget to come back later today to see who the 2 lucky ladies are of my blogcandy.

Thanks for stopping by,

xoxo Karin

OOOOh, what a beautiful snowflake. It makes a perfect background for that stamp, great colors too!

I totally remember those days with my DS. I used to tell him he had to clean out his toybox if he wanted Santa to bring new toys, so we would clean up the slightly used ones and give them to a local Salvation Army store. The others with missing pieces, etc were gathered up and thrown away. *sigh* those were the days. lol Now he wants to keep everything!! :) Kel
