Some "Me" Time

This weekend over at StampNation, Catherine is having a Care Weekend! And she was encouraging us to have some "me" time - to refill our personal tanks.   So I decided to carry on my usual Saturday afternoon "me" time and do some crafting  - doing some cards just for the fun of it.

First up was another Gnome card for Christmas

I'm in love with these really cute gnomes. 

Second one was playing with a doily die I recently picked up for $10.   It is a Star Doily and I thought it would make a great snowflake if I removed the outside rim.   So I gave it a try with some sparkly fun foam.... and it turned out awesome

 A simple white embossed sentiment and it was done. 

It was nice to have no deadlines and just to have fun.

"Me time" is so important, and it looks like you enjoyed yourself, Dawn! I really love that embossed doily one! Love your idea to use fun foam!

Both your cards are fabulous Dawn, really love that sparkly doily using the fun foam. Such a pretty card.

Not only did you have fun, but you also have 2 more wonderful Christmas cards done! I absolutely love how you used the doily die--gorgeous classy card!

The doily one might be simply but it's so elegant and the sparkle is just right. Love the drama and contrast. CarolG
