Silver Ice Snow Flakes!!

Hello wonderful friends and a Happy Thursday to you all!  While you are reading this I am driving south to North Carolina for my CMC Copic On the Road classes this weekend!  I'm rooming with my friend Pat Jaynes (PJ) who has been a great friend to me but this will be the first time we meet :)  I always love meeting everyone in person and the classes are always fun!!  Check out the CMC Road website at for upcoming classes for the new year 2011!  After I go to Buffalo, NY (still a few spots open) and Canada (sold out) next week I am done for the year until Jan. 2011!!  I'll be back with projects on Monday for you, so I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Today also is my wedding anniversary, hee hee!  We've been married more than 14 years and less than 17 years, lmbo (can't say exactly cuz' I wanna see if hubby remembers and he reads my blog, lol)!!!  And since he's reading this I want to tell him how much I really appreciate him as my friend, lover, husband, man and father of our children.  He truly is my best friend in the whole world and I love him more now than ever and I cherish every day we spend together.  I can tell him pretty much anything and he does listen most of the time, hee hee (well ok I don't ALWAYS tell him when I buy more shoes, lmbo)!!  He doesn't mind me waking him up at 3 am after I've read a scary book and make him check the house because "I thought I heard something"!!  He nods his head but NEVER rolls his eyes when I say "honey, I have this idea...."!!  He just calmly tells me "I Love You" when I'm super stressed and barking out orders to everyone!  He lets me be me, my type-A-crazy-never-sit down-outrageous-laughing-goofy-shoe/purse collector-clumsy-yelling-silly-humorous-loving-honest-wonderful self :) everyday and loves me for ME!  And for that I am ever grateful and I'm looking forward to the next 20 years of our life together!  Love You Honey!!!  We are going to a nice dinner on Sunday  (that he is planning--this is a reminder to you honey, hee hee) and then before Thanksgiving we are going away for a few days to celebrate both our anniversary and his 43rd birthday w/o the kiddos!!  So it will be a great start to the holiday season!

Silver Ice Snow Flakes!!

Since it's Thursday I have my SCACD Try It Out Challenge for you today!  I challenged the DT to create holiday/winter projects with NON-TRADITIONAL COLORS (no red, green, silver & gold)!  You can see the DT projects for this challenge on the store blog HERE!  Yep I cheated again, lmbo--but I only used silver as accents!!  I kept my color scheme to cream, gray and gray-aqua with touches of silver here and there!  I used a brand new stamp by new stamp artist Carmen Medlin for SCACD--this image is called "Purrrrfect Friends".  I love me my kitties so this image just touches my heart!

I got to use bunches of new goodies on this card, hee hee, which I LOVE!!  Those beautiful papers are NEW from Webster's Pages called "Waiting for Santa/Sweet Season" (they come in 6x6 size), love the colors and patterns!  The fun die cut behind my main image is a new Spellbinders die called "Beaded Ovals"--love these new beaded die-cuts!  Then I used my new Jumbo MS snowflake punch (and the smaller one too) to create the snowflake embellishments.  I coated them with tacky glue and sprinkled that FABULOUS NEW Silver Flower Soft on them (have you seen it and the gold--awesome stuff & super glittery--a must-have for the holidays)!!  The sentiment is from a new PTI set and then I trimmed my snowflakes with large pearls and smaller pearls at the bottom!

Of course she is colored with Copics (BG75,BG72,BG11,BG10/C9,C7,C5,C3,C1) and then I added lots of stickles to her skirt so it's super glittery (hey its the holiday season, bling is big)!!  Another fun NEW product I used on this is the NEW Color Sparkle Fluff called "daiquiri ice" which I used on her scarf, mittens and kitty's scarf!! (5 new Sparkly Fluff Colors HERE--but this pale aqua is a must have I tell ya)  I love Sparkle Fluff---it's like flock but with sparkles and is fun to touch and easy to use!!  That's diamond glaze on her boots as well--I love to use it on shoes!!  And the bow was made using my fave tool the Bow Easy (best tool for $5 I tell ya)!!!

Hope you enjoyed this project today--although I HATE winter I really like how this card turned out!  Have a fabulous weekend and see you back here on Monday!!  Don't forget to stop by the store blog HERE to see the rest of the DT's fabulous challenge projects!!
