Be Merry

TGIF!!! Don't you love Friday's? The countdown to the weekend is here.

Yesterday I was going through some challenges. I saw that Kerry's challenge was a XMAS card with NO Green and Red. My mind went to snow or snowmen. I decided that I would make a snowflake card with my stencil and paste. When I started this is not what I had in mind but I had trouble finding DP to look good with it so when I decided to stay with strickly CS I just kept refining and this is the end result. I really like the bright blue and white. IRL this card really pops. I like working with the paste and glitter. It is so easy.

I also saw that this card fit 3 other challenges. One was Crafty Calendar. The theme was Weather and snow definetly fits that theme. It won't be long and we will see it falling from the sky here. It is so pretty as it is falling but not so pretty after a couple of days.

The second challenge was Secret Crafter. Their theme was Seasons. Winter is a very long season here in the Northeast. I'm laughing as I am writing this but by February the smile will be gone.

The third was for Daring Cardmakers. This was an interesting challenge. It was to use 3 things on your card that start with the first letter of your name. Mine is Punches, Pearls and Paste.

I was also happy that I got to use my MS punches. I didn't know if I really liked these or not but I do like it on this card. I'm not sure I would have like it as much without the punch. I need to investigate and see what other people are doing with these punches. If you know of anywhere I should check out let me know. I am always looking for new ideas. It's part of what makes this craft so much fun.

Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you think. I love hearing from everyone.

CS: SU Bashful Blue, Pacific Point, Papertrey White
MISC: Embossing paste, Snowflake stencil. MS snowflake punch, Pearls & Ribbons
