More Snowflakes???

Hello everyone,

Does anyone know what happened to February?  Some days seemed really long, but the month just flew by.  Still a little snowy in these parts and, while I am wishing for spring, the snow makes it easy to 'work' on Christmas cards.

Our current challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' is snowflakes and you still have a couple of weeks left to enter.  I hope you will join us and get a head start on your Christmas cards.  Here is my card:

This stamp is one of the first image stamps I got when I started colouring images for cards and I still love it.  They look so happy in spite of being freezing cold. lol The sentiment is from Amy R Snowman Sayings and I thought it was just perfect for a snowflake theme :o) along with lots of glittery flakes and pretty snowflake DP.  This shot captures a little more of the sparkle:


Stamps:  Penny Johnson, Amy R Snowman Sayings and Tim Holtz Odds and Ends (blank ticket)
Paper - Bazzill and Stampin Up card, Imaginisce Cottage Christmas DP, 300g hot pressed watercolour paper
Ink - Black Stazon, Distress (black soot, fired brick, forest moss, tattered rose, tumbled glass), embossing ink (Distress)
Cuts - Elegant edges cricut cartridge for the card and scalloped circle, Stampin Up northern frost (snowflakes), Tim Holtz ticket
Other - Picket Fence crackle paint, Stampin Up iridescent ice embossing powder (snowflakes and edges of ticket), Stardust stickles, snow marker and dazzling diamonds glitter (on the hat).

We have a fab sponsor this month:

Dawn, hi! Super SUPER sweet card! Love the shape, and the pretty red DP. Glittery snowflakes look amazing, and that you have so many different cuts, too, really makes your card stand out. I especially like how the larger flakes are peeking out from behind your circle panels. The blue halo around your snow couple is just the right touch! SO PRETTY! hugs, de

I don't know what happened to February here either - with some of those wintery storms you'd think it would have seemed longer....
This card is ADORABLE - I love the shape of the base, and that image is just sweet :)


Lovely card. Loved it! Thanks for joining CHNC extra challenge this month.

Gorgeous card, Dawn - those snowmen, er I mean snowpeople do look happy despite the cold. We've just had the hottest summer on record - and it's still dragging on, so I'd agree; some days DID seem long, lol. Love the sentiment on your card too, such fun (and so true too!) Donna xx
