My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Creatively Artsy is my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

SNSS - You Light Up My Life - SCS259



Wow, can you believe that Christmas is only one week away. I have lots of mixed emotions about that. I hate when it's over because my house looks so bare after New Years, But the stress before is terrible. So many things to get done and so little time. My posts lately are few and far between. I don't even have my own Christmas cards finished yet. I guess some are going to say Happy New Year again this year! *Ü*

So, back to this card. I used Split Coast Stamper's Card Sketch 259 for inspiration. The card was made using the Stamp, "You Light Up My Life," from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. This was made especially to play along with the challenge with the Sweet 'n Sassy group over at Paper Craft Planet for Digi Day.  
Go on over and play along and get a FREE Digi for doing so. The challenge was to use snowflakes in some way. I think I have this covered.

The snowflake is a combination of a Spellbinder Die and a MS punch.
The papers are from Close to My Heart in Garnet and Twilight.
The image was colored in with Copic Markers.
The stitching around the card was done by hand with Embroidery floss.
The snow around the image was done by using a stipple brush and Liquid applique. The snow under the Snowman is Liquid Applique and Diamond Dust.
