First Snow

Good Afternoon! Is everyone having a good weekend? Yesterday, I went to a craft show in Boston with 2 of my sisters and my niece. It was alot of fun. I bought a couple of things for my house. One I am going to give to my brother to give me for XMAS. My brother likes it because he doesn't have to figure out what to buy and I know I am getting something I want. I bought some aromatherapy things and some butterscotch sauce to make some really good desserts. We love going to these things. It always amazes me how talented some people are. We were joking yesterday that we need to buy bigger houses just to buy more stuff to decorate, epecially for XMAS.

When I saw the challenge on the Colour Create Challenge Blog I knew I had to do it. The colors this week are Blue, Silver and White. I started out with a lighter blue but it ended up not matching the colors on the snowman's hats so I went with Turquoise. It looked plain to me so I used the Martha Stewart Icicle punch on the top. I know this will be one of my favorite punches this winter. I also wanted to do something a little different than just square layers under the snowman so I used one of my spellbinders dies and twisted them around. I then ran it through the cuttlebug with the snowflake embossing folder. Then, of course, lots of Glitter.
This card was alot of fun to make. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Thanks for coming by to visit. Let me know what you think.
