My Krafty Snowmen :)

Good Morning!
I'm sooooooooooo glad it's the weekend! Not that I'm going to get much rest or anything! Today I have some shopping to do and finish my Christmas cards. Tonight Brian and I have his company Christmas party. It's bitterly cold here now and will continue for the next several days....highs of -25C which is -13F....I wish I didn't have to go anywhere....lol
Lauren has a great sketch today! I've taken advantage of the cool Scenic Route DP I had so there really isn't much stamping to this card. Just this cute little snowman from the CC Designs set called Winter Bear. Stop by Lauren's blog to see the sketch and what all the other Saturday Sketch girls have come up with as well!
Stamps: Winter Bear; Cardstock: PTI kraft, Kiwi Kiss and Scenic Route DP; Inks: Adirondack Black; Accessories: Circle Nesties, Copics, SU scalloped edge punch, mini rhinestones, Dimensionals, Riding Hood Ribbon
This week at Our Creative Corner we had a great challenge set by Julee. It was to make a gift card holder. Seems I have been making MANY of them lately with the holiday season here but all of mine have been the same thing....lol This time I used a tutorial by Jessie that you can find HERE. I didn't follow it exactly but got the same general outcome ;)
I used the CC Designs set called Winter Bear again....I LOVE these cute stamps! AmyR has a great Christmas Sentiments available at ATS too! Since I had the cardstock and designer paper out for my other card, I used the same things here!
Be sure to stop by the OCC girls blogs to see what they have come up with too! You will find them all listed on my sidebar on the right.
Stamps: Winter Bear; Cardstock: PTI kraft, Riding Hood Red, Scenic Route DP; Inks: Adirondack Black; Accessories: Oval Nesties, Copics, Riding Hood Ribbon, Circle Punch, Antique Jumbo brad, Slit Punch, Dimensionals, White Gel Pen
Thanks for stopping by today!
