Winter Blues

I thank God for another Sunday and another chance to worship Him!

(Blog Candy Winner for the Party Time post can be found here.)
I'm creating something for you again this week at

613 Avenue Create

 This week's theme is Anything Goes w/ the optional twist of
"Winter Blues."
This week the cut files for my cards come from My Scrap Chick. The file is called Gift Card Holders for Christmas (there is an option in the file for making a standard card). The tag is from the Fall Tree Gift Tag set and, of course, I only used one layer of the tag and sized it for my needs.
And this card does make a super cute greeting for Christmas!!!

But Snowmen are not just for Christmas. They are everything winter!!!
After whipping up several of these in an afternoon, I went through my stamp sets and found several sentiments that would work for all my winter occasions. Today I am sharing three of those options with you.



 You could make up a bunch of these yourself and wait to add the tags until you know what you need to use them for.

The stamps I used today are from Verve Stamps and Jaded Blossom. I hope you will look up both of these stores online and check out their wonderful assortments.

 The crochet thread/twine was found at a local store. I just wrapped it around the base of each card 5x and used it to attach the tag.

I hope you have enjoyed today's project.

(I have 5 of these cards for sale. They are $3.50 each plus shipping and handling. Please email me if you are interested. I will be glad to attach a tag that works for your occasion.)
