OK I have one thing to say-Yippeeeeeee for Canada!!! We won the gold in Hockey for Womens and men's!!! I don't watch Hockey normally but I loved it that they won:) Now on to my cards. I used a dark blue and another blue(really nice paper). I used the cuddlebug and a die cut to cut out the branches and placed them around like a wreath.I added the bow and tada! The next card I used tombow markers and cut out the design and mounted it on top for a 3d effect. I also used crystals and glitter. The 3rd card is simple. I added glitter to the white for the border. I stamped and embossed the reindeer in white sparkle and mounted the card on the white paper. The 4th card I had fun! I made it a snowy fun day with the polar bears ice dancing with the mountains behind them. I used a dark blue felt with glitter for the midnight sky and the shiny paper for the ice:) The last card took the longest. I used prisma pencils for the colouring. I never used my dove stamp before and highlighted the doves in glitter. I used the cuddlebug for the embossing window look and coloured that and glittered it up a bit. I used this nice white paper behind it and when you open the doors you see this angel which I coloured, cut out and placed it behind the doors. I used crystals on her dress as well. This took some time. So enjoyed the Olympics but missed quite a bit of it. Always love it and one day would love to try the bobsled-with a professional of course.
