Since my last post, I have been working some long hours at work which leaves little time to do anything else at night. Not to mention all the holiday stuff going on.
Last Sunday I baked cookies with my friends so I have almost all my holiday baking done. We also put up our holiday lights outside and got the Christmas tree up. Just finished putting on the ornaments tonight. Still need to hang the tinsel.
For those of you that are Scandinavian, you will know what Lefsa is. If not, it is a potato base dough that is chilled overnight and then divided into small portions and rolled really thin the next morning. It is then fried on a flat griddle served up with butter and sugar. Well, I made 2 dozen pieces this morning. That may not sound like a lot, but it takes time rolling each piece really thin.
That left this afternoon for me to finally get some crafting done.
I am so far behind with challenges, but did see that Peachy Keen has a sketch challenge and Robin at Robin's Creative Cottage has posted her very first challenge.
So here is my first holiday card of the season....yes, I am WAY behind!
Here's how I did it...
