Hello crafty friends,

On Sunday evening I agreed to make a card for a teacher that needed to be dropped off Monday morning! So I had to work fast! Fortunately Kim from "Art Keeps Me Sane" posted a snowflake card that was exactly the inspiration I needed! Thank you, Kim!

I had to make a big card 8.5" by 5.5". The stamp set is a discontinued one by Stampin' Up but I still like it a lot. I rubbed Metallic Gelatos on the stamps and spritzed them with water before I stamped them to get a watercolored look. They shimmer very nicely. Then I added a lot of Stickles for extra sparkle.

Just realized that it's not too late to enter it into the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Let It Snow".

It's also time to welcome a new follower - hurray! Mrs. A. from "It's an Alien Life". She is a seasoned blogger and crafter. You should check out her self imposed challenge to make a card for the 12 Days of Christmas. She is hilarious! 

The quote to welcome Mrs. A. is from Picasso:
"Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life."

If I don't have time to blog before the Christmas I wish you all a wonderful holiday! 
Thank you for your visit! I hope you will stop by again!


Stamps: Stampin' Up (retired)
Other: Metallic Gelatos, Stickles
