Celebrate the Season

Happy Tuesday everyone ;o) I am so happy to have been able to get into my little "craft room" and complete a few creations. I think you will notice a trend over this week. Snowflakes were all the "rage" in Justine's world......

I was given a special order for Christmas cards. She was specific in that she wanted snowflakes but did not care for blue. Have ya ever noticed how MOST snowflake cards are BLUE?? This was the first one that I put together and it popped out of my head and into a design exactly as I had envisioned. Don't ya just LOVE LoVe when that happens?

I'm not sure that the photo actually does this card justice. First I stamped the chocolate snowlakes then the white ones. I then sprinkled a clear sparkly embossing powder, heat set and was suprised that a teeny amount of the embossing powder had adhered to the chocolate snowflakes. Not really enough to emboss but they are ever so sparkly. The large snowflake is out of the PaperTrey Ink 2008 Holiday Tags sets. My new favorite set, I think you'll be seeing it alot. I just stamped it in dark chocolate, punched it with the blue scallop circle by Marvy with a red one adhered behind it. Glued a little rhinestone in the center for some bling. The sentiment at the bottom is also from the holiday tag set.

Well that is all for today or I am going to be late for work. Yea still working. hrmph!!! I am planning our family cruise that we will be taking in April so work is looking pretty good right about now. Thanks for stopping by................
