Happy Holidays and Happy Friday to you all! Yep I promised to have my holiday pictures up for you today, but I didn't get all the pictures taken before the daylight was gone so I will have them up on Sunday or Monday for ya so don't despair (wink)!! On Saturday we're going to see ICE at the Gaylord Resort at National Harbor--I'm soooo excited and the theme is "The Grinch"--love it! We just watched the Grinch movie with Jim Carrey (one of my faves) the other night and the ice skating rink will be all green--hee hee! If you ever get the chance to go to an ICE show you should, it's totally worth it---I'll share some pictures with you of it all next week! And then hubby and I are finishing our Xmas shopping up on Sunday--pray for me please. I hope to hit the mall and then 3 other stores and be DONE with it all! Yay! I hope you all have some fabulous holiday plans this weekend! This coming week I have two band concerts to attend for my son--he is the solo drummer for the "Little Drummer Boy" song so I'm super excited for him! He's asked Santa for a drum set for Christmas but I'm thinking Santa doesn't like that idea much, LMBO!! Santa might have to include a set of Bose noise-reducing earphones with that gift :)

Well today I'm sharing with you all my favorite holiday card I've made this season! I love the crisp whites and blues because they are so elegant but scream FROSTY FUN!! I used a wonderful Elisabeth Bell for SCACD image called "Look Out Below"--isn't she fabulous and fun? I didn't put a sentiment on this card because I thought it could be used for the holidays OR for any winter occasion like a birthday or hello!
4 rare packs LEFT HERE--buy them now cuz they are sooo pretty and you cannot get them anywhere else! But if you miss out on the 4 above don't despair, Bo Bunny has a paper pad that is super similar called "Midnight Frost" (15% off too) that is beautiful too! The white paper is actually SEI Velvet Paper (so very yummy) and it embosses beautifully and is soft to touch--see the below photo for a close up. (You NEED velvet paper I tell ya--it's fun and so pretty) I added stickles to the embossing for some extra sparkle too! I cut my main image out and then popped her up on top of the Velvet embossed paper and matted it with a Lacey Circles Nestability shape. Then I punched 4 of the Jumbo Snowflakes from a MS punch and added them behind the circles for a pretty frame (and yep added stickles to the snowflakes). A bow made with my Bow Easy and some pearls finish it off nicely!
She got colored with Copics (B39,B37,B34,B32/C3,C1,C00/E29,E25,E31,E50/YR24,YR20,E31) and then I went to town with my products, lol! The fringe on her scarf got the NEW Navy Sparkly Fluff and her hat pom-pom and sweater trim got white Sparkly Fluff (lovee that stuff)! Some stickles on her scarf stripes and then I added a thin coat of tacky glue to the bottom of her sled and put MS Snow Glitter on top for some frosty snow accents!
