Snow Days Blog Hop * Day 2!

We're so happy you could join us for Day Two of this super-fun hop showcasing cards, layouts and projects that feature everything about Snow Days!! You'll find an array of ideas throughout the hop -- We hope you'll enjoy each and every project along the way!!

If you'd like to join our Snow Days Fun, then you are in the right place. Keep alert for blog candy along the way as some hop stops will be offering some goodies...

For Day Two of the hop, I've re-purposed a Christmas card into an ATC (Artist Trading Card)! I had my first try at ATC's here with Friendship's Garden. I always hate throwing out (or worse yet, storing for no apparent purpose) Christmas cards every year, but I'd never come across a reason to keep them...until now! Depending on the design on the Christmas card, you can easily make two to three ATC's per card and end up with an entire set by the end of the Season!

 I fancy cut around one of the trees to be able to pop it up off of the card a bit. All of the elements here are from the Christmas card, with the addition of a bit of ric rac trim, colored staples and some Stickles for a bit of shine! I stuck everything down with Glue Dots.
Hope you've enjoyed Day Two here at the Snow Days Blog Hop. Thanks for coming by! Hope you haven't thrown out those Christmas cards yet!!   ... Now hop on over to Amy!

Here's a list of the entire hop, in case you get lost along the way or want to revisit anyone:
