Let It Snow (but not today :)


Good Monday Morning Everyone,

Hope ya'll had a great Mother's Day weekend!! Ours was very sweet, simple and lovely! And today - its time for another challenge from the Christmas Stampin All Year Challenge group - and today Vicki Garrett of Summerthyme Studio - has a fun challenge for us to add some blingy bling to our Christmas cards! Who doesn't love a little bit of bling! I know I do!

I pulled out one of my new fave craft stamps that I just got from JanLynn created by the artist Tara Reed - aren't these snowmen just so cute and lovely! This is called Cheerful Snowmen - and they totally make me smile! I love how happy they look and I especially love the little guy holding up the little present I used Jen's Sketch for You to Try and after coloring them, I covered them in Crystal Stickles and then dusted them with coarse crystals from Martha Stewart and now they are sparkly sparkly. I created little snow drops with some liquid pearls.  I added a little bling on the side and used the Let it Snow sentiment from Taylored Expressions



I am totally lovin' doing these challenges - I am never this organized with creating Christmas cards so early! I don't know what I am going to do with all my spare time around the holidays - maybe actually enjoy the season without that much stress about creating a bunch of cards :) 

Hope you join us and create your holiday cards along with us! 

Happy Monday Everyone - have a great week!

Ciao for now!
Sankari :)
