Happily Ever After

Dear Ones~
This will be a quick post for today. I have been very busy with Christmas preparations, as have all of you I know. But I wanted to get this card into the Mod Squad Challenge for this week, Frilly Fun. We are to use two or more dies.
This card was made for the wedding of a dear friend. Her theme was winter, so I thought the snowflakes were so appropriate. Here is my card:
I used several different snowflake dies, a Spellbinders label die, and lots of glitter and silver embossing powder.

Here are the ingredients:
GKD White Card Stock
Recollections Christmas Glitter Pad
Impression Obsession Snowflakes Dies
Spellbinders Labels 4 Die
Sentiment from my Stash
GKD Ultra-Fine Silver Embossing Powder

Thanks for stopping by. I adore your comments, hope you are having a wonderful holiday!!

Chocolate Snowman

Dear Ones~
Today was a "me" day and I got to play in my craft room. As with most of us right now, I have been very busy with Christmas preparations and the like. SO MUCH FUN!!! But my time isn't my own. Today I have made a card to enter in 2 challenges. STV's Monday Challenge, to do something with Winter Chocolate; and The Mod Squad Challenge, to do something with Snowmen. So I decided to make a Chocolate Snowman!! There's chocolate Easter Bunnies, right. Why not a Chocolate Snowman. And yeah, they prob'ly have 'em.

Here's my card:
He kinda looks like a bird in the photo with his little carrot nose, but not in real life. I glittered him all up and made everything sparkly. And the swirl is gold instead of white, like snow would be. The hat and scarf are paper pieced with some GKD patterned Christmas paper, but it's very old. I don't think they make it any more because I couldn't find it in her store. If anyone knows the name of the pack please enlighten me.

Here are the ingredients:
Hex Die by QuickKutz
GKD Ivory Card Stock.
Recollections Espresso Patterned Paper
 GKD Let It Snow and Snowman Wishes Stamp Sets
Cheery Lynn Designs Swirl Die
Gold Foil Paper from my Stash

Thanks for taking the time to stop by, what with the busy-ness of the holidays and all. I adore your comments!!! Oh, and stay warm, my friends!!
