this week, or rather, this fortnight* at shopping our stash, the challenge is called "winter wonderland" because we're looking for projects that celebrate winter, generally, rather than christmas or hanukkah. i've made a few more cards, which i'm hoping will serve as thank you notes or even january birthdays, but at the moment they're sitting in my xmas card box, because every year there's at least one person who surprises me with a card and i like to be able to respond! :)
i'm sure you've noticed a certain resemblance to my colorburst evergreen cards from last week; for one thing, i still had deer and tree diecuts leftover from one of my december classes. plus i had these beautiful backgrounds i made at paper anthology a couple of weeks ago using a gorgeous impression obsession "cover a card" background stamp that i have since ordered because... well, just look at it, lol!
i still don't enjoy mass-producing cards, but i definitely see the advantage in working with a group of related items. plus it always feels like a big win to use up those last few scraps or diecuts or leftovers, as opposed to having to clean them up, doesn't it?

*in honor of the holidays, this SOS challenge will run for two weeks instead of one!
