Fresh Snow!!

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 :)

Fresh Snow!!

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!

The papers I used are from Dovecrafts in the UK and this is a discontinued paper pack but guess what?  Susana has 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!

Hope you enjoyed this post and wishing you all some frosty holiday fun this weekend!  See ya either Sunday or Monday!!
