....let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Well, we are all snuggled up and ready for the blizzard that's supposed to hit. We stocked up with food and rearranged schedules so that we won't have to be out driving. And, all this snow we've been getting sure does help with getting in the Spirit of Christmas. My hubby even went out and got our kids new winter boots so when they have a snow day Monday and maybe Tuesday they can go outside and play. While Mom is all warm and dry inside with a hot cup of tea and happy working on Christmas cards, calendars, and teacher gifts.

I decided to try this week's Catch the Bug Challenge. I used this cutie jingle bell snowman from Bugaboo Stamps. I printed him on white cs and colored him with my copics. I cut him out with circle nesties. Next, I used my versamark pad, su heat and stick powder and then topped it off with su dazzling diamonds glitter to make him look like he's a sparkling ornament. The ornament topper I traced and cut out of some shiny silver paper and used my 1/4" punch for the hole and my paper piercer for some texture. I hooked it on to my "tree" with su linen thread. 

The DP I chose is my minds eye I believe. I like this paper for this project because the red stripes are sparkly, too. I stamped "tree" branches with su old olive csp using su peaceful wishes. I stitched around all the layers. Added some more sparkle to the bottom corners. The sentiment is a computer font and cut out with circle and scalloped circle nesties.

It's always so fun discovering how each person interprets these card challenges. I look forward to seeing what they come up with. As for me, I'm stuck in a rut....all my cards keep wanting to be a square. *giggle*
