Super-quick post because I totally blew off work all morning to make a card:
It's for a little boy whose family is celebrating Christmas this week instead of waiting until December, because little Noah will probably have passed by then... I read about it this morning when I checked the Limited Supply challenge on Splitcoast for today. You can read the challenge and find a link to the story HERE. Needless to say, this project pre-empted the one I previewed yesterday...
Here's a view of the card when it's opened:
I got to use four of my Whippersnappers (aren't they sweet?), and just plain ol' random-stamped snowflakes on plain ol' white cardstock (the snowflake stamp is from Stampin'Up!'s "Flakey Friends" set). I computer-generated the "We wish you a" part of the sentiment (Comic Sans font), and the rest is an Inkadinkado stamp. Pretty much all there is to tell on this. Oh, wait - I need to tell you this, too: I used a light box to see through the cutout images so I could color the backs and add a few detail lines (not as detailed as the fronts, though), so it would look decent on both sides...
Okay, I really do have to get to work now... Have a great day, send Noah a card if you can, and thanks for stopping by!
OMGosh, well... if your gonna' blow off work for anything this would be right up there on my list.. I'm sure Noah will smile when he sees this ... I'm sure it will make the whole family smile, and it feels good when we can accomplish that doesn't it because that is the intended purpose now isn't it! This is an adorable card hon!

Ahh, that's SO cute! What a great card for a sweet and sincere purpose. I am always blown away by your talent and this card just tops the cake! I can imagine the adorable smile this will receive from Noah when it arrives in his mailbox. It's perfect!
