I hope you had a joyous and blessed Christmas! Mine was great, and certainly very busy!

If you're wondering where iPICKS has been .... I've been having difficulties with Clipmarks and haven't been able to post. As soon as it starts working again, I'll get caught up with the iPICKS posts.

On to a card...
I am really hoping that this card is the first of many during my Winter Break! I used the Create with Connie & Mary Sketch Challenge #182, and the stamp set Sweetheart. I love the non-traditional Valentine's Day color scheme!

Last night was our annual weSTAMP Demonstrator Group Christmas Party, an event we look forward to all year long! Besides delicious food and a fun homemade gift exchange, we gathered to make a festive project together. This year, Lorri asked me to design a holiday shadow box collage for our group. This was incredibly fun to design, and we made it super easy for everyone to complete that night by having almost everything cut, scored, punched, etc.

(all supplies are Stampin' Up!)
