Snowy Day Stamping

The snow is falling...and I do mean falling!  So far, we have about 4" on the ground with a forecast of about 10"...possibly 14 or more in some pockets are the area.  Since it's snowing and I had a snow day off from school.  I decided I wanted to be creative.  I challenged my stamp group to a Christmas Card Challenge where we need to make a selected number of Christmas Cards each month so that we'll have plenty for next Christmas. I said I needed to make 5 cards a month.  Here is is January 21st and I hadn't made knees have been really hurting and my stamp room is upstairs...I didn't feel like climbing the steps so I challenged myself to create a Christmas card using only what I had, here is what I came up with:

I had been wanting to try the sunburst technique.  It's pretty simple, actually.  Of course, I would have prefered to have vanilla cardstock instead of white and a poinsettia instead of a rose, but hey, all those things were upstairs! 

Anyway, for the most part, they'll do...2 cards down and 3 more to go for January.  Looks like we might have another snow day tomorrow...we'll see what happens.  If we do, maybe I can venture up the stairs...

Papers:  Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard, white, patterned paper from Authentique
Stamp:  Merry Christmas from Stampin' Up
Paper rose unknown
