Winter Wishes & Amazing Crafty News!!!

Hey there!!

Guess what!?!?! After a FULL week of keeping this news to myself i can finally shout it from the roof top, or , er the blog top...? LOL Anyway i am so excited to share that i won this years Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking World Card Making Day in the Thank You category!!! I haven't stopped smiling all week and i can't wait for you to see the card!! It will be published in the March 2014 issue!!

To celebrate i made a Christmas card to share today! Yay, another Christmas card for my stash!! To start i stamped the Penny Black igloo image on watercolor image and used my Distress markers to color it.

I knew i wanted to cut out the image on a curve, so i used a bowl to trace a line and cut out just the top part. (i was too lazy to die cut half the image!! hehe)  I left the bottom uncut and at first i was going to cover the bottom with pattern paper, but after looking at my Christmas pattern paper i found some old stuff and i got another idea.... a snow globe!!

I pulled out some black cardstock and just trimmed it up to make the stand, then adhered it to my image. Next i found a tiny tag i already had cut, stamped the sentiment merry winter! and added it to the snow globe with red and white twine!
