I have been busy the last few days getting ready for Christmas.  So this afternoon, I decided to take some time to just relax and play a little while.  I still have so many things I wanted to make for Christmas.  I won't get every thing done but maybe a few more things.

I decided to cut this lantern while I was folding clothes.  I knew it would take a while and I figured it would be waiting on me when I was ready.  It took forever to get it off the cutting mat because I didn't want to mess up the snowflakes.

I did it in white and blue so I could use it through the end of January.  I had planned on cutting several of them but after it took longer to put together than I thought, I decided on just one.  I am going to put it on my winter mantle.

I am going to use it for the following challenges:
   2 Creative Chicks - Christmas/Winter
   Silhouette Challenges - 3D
   Incy Wincy - Let It Snow 
   Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
   Cardz TV - Winter Wonderland
   Chick N Scrap - Holiday Gifts
   Craft Spot by Kimberly - Holiday Gifts

Wow, and I was just making it because I wanted it.

Have a great day.
