12 Months of Christmas February Challenge Update

Hello there! I know...I know. I'm late with my update on February's challenge. But, I'm not super late (only 2 days), and I do have a really good excuse. Really. See:
Handsome Hubby had a week off of work so we decided to tackle one of the major home improvement projects on our list...opening up a window from the kitchen to the living room. Needless to say, I didn't spend much time this last week at my desk. We're probably about 75% done with the project and I hope to post an update on the family blog soon.

Anyway, here I am, and I'm sad to say that I didn't make my goal for this month. That's OK, though. I'm closer than I would have been had I not challenged myself. I did get 12 cards made for the month, and I did do a bit of perusing Pinterest for gift ideas, I just didn't see much that sparked my interest there. That may or may not have been due to the fact that most of my perusing involved paint colors rather than gift ideas. ;o)

So, here are the cards I made for February:

I used our Wondrous Wreath stamp set, and after adhering the white cardstock to the card front, I used the center die to cut a "window" out. This allows you to see the "Joy" stamped on the inside of the card. I think it might be cute with a family photo peaking out as well. What do you think?

Here's a list of supplies I used to make these cards. LOVE the glimmer paper bows. :o)

I will be back with the challenge for March along with a card we did at my Stamp-A-Stack last week.

till next time...
