Softly falling snow

It's been a long, long time since I posted twice in one day but I just made my Jingle Belles card for this week and wanted to put it up a day earlier than usual as I have a special blog post for tomorrow.

So, I'll keep this short and sweet.

This week's prompt comes from Noelle McAdams over at Paper & ICE. When she thinks of winter, she is reminded of all "softly falling snow, snuggly sweaters and socks, mittens, down parkas, warm, soft cookies and coziness in general." And the idea of setting us a soft Christmas card challenge sprang to mind.

I was looking around on Saturday and picked up some felt thinking I might cut something out and get all crafty, when my eyes alighted on a snowflake hanger made of heavy grey felt. And I knew what I wanted to do. Make a card with this element hanging off it so that the recipient can use it on their own tree or as a present tag. I know that I'd love to receive something like this so why not others?

I simply tied the hanger onto the top of the card using cream twine. Simple. I used a CPS sketch #241

I added a small sentiment underneath the snowflake so the card wouldn't look too bare once it was removed.
I'm sure I now have more cards than I need for this year. One less thing to worry about :-)
