Let It Snow

Happy Monday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. I would like to say that I don't know where the day went today. I  was working on a card for the color challenge on Splitcoaststampers and that's all I did. It took all day for me to finish the card. I am not sure how that is possible but it happened.

I will be showing that card tomorrow. The one I am showing today I made for the winter wonderland mini viritual stamping night on Splitcoaststampers. Lisa is our hostess and she wanted us to make a card or project with an image of a something you'd bundle up with....scarf, hats, mittens, sweater, blanket, etc.....AND to make it warm and cozy....... incorporate felt into your project.


I always wear a scarf in the cold weather to bundle up and keep warm. For the felt part of the challenge, I found this snowman in my stash. It's a felt applique. OI added some sparkle with red rhinestones.

I have had it for years and today it finally gets used. I have another one so I can make 2 of these cards anyway. There was a .25 sticker on the back-I must have found it on clearance somewhere.

My background embossed layer is the Cuttlebug "snowflakes" folder. My stamped snowflakes are from the Verve set "winter wonder".
I stamped in navy ink several times without re-inking to get a gradient look.


The tag sentiment is from Stampin-Up's "tiny talk set".

I added some red ribbon with a snowflake button and bakers twine to complete my card.

Well it's very late now so I have to dim the light in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time.......God bless.

Some other challenges:
1.   Craft Your Passion has a "let it snow" challenge. I am so on this one!!
2.   Hooked on Craft wants us to use a punch or a die cut. I used both.
3.   Incy Wincy Designs has a tic tac toe challenge. I chose red-christmas sentiment-ribbons.
4.  Ooh-la-la creations has a bingo. I chose ribbon-diecut-sparkle.

  1. Super cute snowman and card! I know what you mean about working on a card all day. I had the same issue with my color challenge card on Sunday. No matter which direction I went I had to make a sharp turn in another direction. I was soooooo glad to get that card done and move on to something else, lol!
