STAMP SOMETHING - SNOW SOMETHINGS

Happy Friday!!! I am so excited, my husband will be home tonight for the weekend!!! Whoohoo!!! Of course, I am teaching two classes (scheduled before we knew he was leaving) so he is going to take the kids Christmas shopping while I do that! So, today is the day for Stamp Something and the challenge today is Snow Somethings - perfect, don't you think??!! I decided to make a clear card - you know, out of clear card stock (yep, I found some!) and use some of my fabulous Old Saint Nick rub-ons, available in the Holiday Mini. The inside of the card there is a piece of Bashful Blue card stock which I stamped my snowman on - and you can see him through to the front where all the snowflakes are!! I added some silver mini eyelets to the center of my snowflakes to add some pop, and trimmed the front of my card a little shorter than the back so I could adhere my scalloped and stamped card stock to the front. Then, ribbon, a pretty brad, and done!! Well, what do you think? I am quite happy with it - and it is in the mail today, lol!!! So, if you want to see what the rest of the DT did, head on over to Stamp Something and check it out, they are soooo very talented!! And, why not try the sketch yourself? Just upload a link to your project so we can all look AND you can get entered to win some yummy goodies!!! So, I am off to run a few errands, and cook a nice meal for tonight!! Enjoy your weekend ladies, I will see you tomorrow for Scrapbook Saturday when I have a really cute layout to share!!!
