Merry Christmas Eve!

This is probably the last card you'll see from me for a little while - tomorrow morning we head up to Michigan for the holidays. Well - hopefully we do, anyway! We're supposed to connect through Chicago, and last I heard not too much is coming in or out of O'Hare! One way or another, I sure hope we make it to Detroit tomorrow without too terribly much delay! Ugh, the thought of lots of delay with two little ones... not pleasant...! But I guess there's no sense worrying about it (or boring you with my worries) - whatever is going to happen will happen! So on to the card - this is my final card with this month's FireCracker Designs by Pamela set Season's Greetings. I love this snowflake stamp, it's so delicate and gorgeous! For the main image panel I used the "Magic Snowflake" technique - seemed appropriate for a snowflake image! :-) For the background snowflakes I used some heat & stick powder and Martha Stewart glitter. Notice anything odd about this card (for me)? I didn't use any patterned paper! That's pretty rare these days. I couldn't figure out what to put on this for a sentiment - none of my FCD sentiments were fitting right. So, I busted out some Making Memories metal that's been in my stash for ages! I chose "dream", because Carter has been dreaming of playing in the snow (he's soooo excited to see his first snow!), and I'm dreaming that we'll actually make it up to the frozen north. :-) And speaking of dreaming, I better hit the hay so I can have some sweet dreams myself - we're waking up at 3:30am in order to make our 6:00am flight (assuming it's not canceled!). I still have about a zillion things I had wanted to do tonight, but, I just have to let go of the guilt and say "I didn't get them done and that's ok!". And... hope Pamela doesn't fire me since several of the things were for her. *sigh* So who knows, this may be the *last* FCD design team card you see from me...! LOL Take care y'all and STAY WARM!
