Peace snowflake

It's black Friday and while most are out shopping, I am sitting at home with my slippered feet and pajamas on.    I really don't mind that I am house bound.  Except when I get strange cravings for food not in the house.  Hopefully I will get cleared for driving in a few days.  It really makes me stop and think about all those who will never be permitted to drive again.  That makes me weepy and if I cry anymore my husband will surely award me the drama queen crown.  I am aiming for a day without it.  ;-) 
Today I wanted to share my Paper Playtime card I created using PSA Essentials.  Have you used these?  Oh my they are the coolest invention!  Anyone can stamp a perfect image with this clever tool.

I wanted a beautiful wintery scene on my card because I am hoping for a white Christmas.  The stamp set I used is TreeO. I used some glitter paper stacked with a polka dot banner layered with a doily and a circle reindeer print.  The sentiment is stamped on a die cut scallop which I popped up with foam dots.  I stamped a snowflake and cut out which I added to the lower left corner.  A few rhinestones and my card is complete!

I have a confession :):):) ... I have never had a driver's license...I have two friends that have tried to make me learn to drive...and that never came about :) Before my hubby and I got married, I would walk and take the bus :):):) People think I am weird... but I am ok with that :):):):):) I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee your card :):):):):) I love love love the colors, the pennant and the doily! :):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi Amy! I hope you're driving again soon...I've never been able to drive, because I have no peripheral vision, or depth perception. I understand your 'housebound' feelings, but I see driving as a priviledge and a learned skill, not a right.... so I don't miss it (especially when I never had it!) I hope you had a terrific Thanksgiving. Thank you for offering your gorgeous giveaway, which I've entered twice, as I posted it on my blog!
hugs and blessings from Australia,
Pauline
