Winter Wonderland - A One Layer Card!

Good morning!

Firstly, apologies for my absence this week.  I thought my routine would get back on track and it has, it just hasn't left me a lot of time for crafting!  I'm back in the gym pretty much every morning for an hour workout and it feels GREAT!  And before I know it my little guy is coming home from Kindergarten!  I did manage to craft yesterday but it is all DT work that you'll just have to wait a little longer to see ....but trust me, the wait will be so worth it!

Anyways, today I have my card for the challenge I'm hosting over at Winter Wonderland this week - A One Layer Card.  This involves essentially a clean and simple card - no embellishments that will bump the card up into the next mailing cost.  So this is the card I've done - a beautiful deer image from The Stamp Barn and a silver heat embossed PEACE.  Very simple but I love the look.  I used silver paper to punch star borders for either side of the image.

I hope you're able to pop on over to the blog and join in with my challenge this week.  We're sponsored by The Stamp Barn and their prize is on the blog so go take a peek!  As well, the rest of the DT have provided amazing inspiration for this challenge too!

Well, that's it for today!  I have a few things on my 'to do' list so hopefully some crafty time can get put in somewhere.  Also, I will try and make it round to your blogs and catch up on my commenting.  Phew, I feel like I'm running aound in circles constantly trying to catch my tail ... do you ever feel like that??

Thanks for visiting and any comments you may leave - they always make my day so thank you for taking the time to leave one!

Fabulous card. I actually tried to do one for the challenge this week, but I'm really struggling with trying to keep it to one layer. You did a fabulous job. I love the sentiment, and how you embossed it.
