Sparkles and Peppermint

The first day of 1st grade seems to have gone well.  Logan had a great time and I really like his teacher.  I think it will be a good year!  These are the last 2 cards that my guests got to make at my class last Saturday.  The sparkling snowflake one I think was a HUGE hit with everyone.  It was the easiest one but defiantly the most talked about one. The sparkles on the Champagne and Silver Glimmer Paper really speaks for it self.  You really don't need much more!  I did add a sparkly brad to the center to finish it :)  There is serious sparkle on this card!!

The last card was also a big hit.  We used markers to color the stamp.  Then of course cut it out with the framelits.  How amazing are those and how great is it that you can save when you buy it in the bundle!  Yay!!!!!  We also used the VersaMarker to color over the stamped image then embossed it with some Peppermint Embossing powder!  I love the little banner on this card and I love the polka dots!  Sorry this picture isn't great, We're still working on our new schedule and pictures 'should' be taken in the morning when I have the natural light in my room, but you know sometimes that just doesn't happen :)  The good thing about this new schedule is that Megan will nap right after lunch now, which gives me some free time to craft without worrying about either child.  Though the afternoons, might get a little more crazy! 
Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!!!

I LOVE both cards. I am going to copy the peppermint one - making it a 'thinking of you' to send out this winter. Thanks for sharing.
