Snowy Thoughts


I just could not wait to use some of my new goodies I purchased at the show this weekend. The snowman is from Heartfelt Creations stamp set called Snowmen Melt Your Heart. My sentiment is from their Cardinal Bird feeder set. Do you see this sweet embossing folder? That is from a company that was new to me. You can find them at http://www.crafts-too.com/. They have some really cute ones! I colored with Copics, smudged ink on the holly leaves, Stickled the swirls, and lacquered the berries! A few MS branch punches were added, and presto!

I am thinking that this embossing folder may be the base of all my holiday cards. Hope you like, and I may be back later! Have to run to work for a few hours!

Mary Anne,
This is amazing! Love the folder and that snowman how adorable!

This is way cute! The embossing folder is unique -- I think the hearts combined with the ivy and berries is not something you'd find just anywhere and it appears to have a frame for a greeting - love that. You have a gift of finding unique items! Love the snowman too -- he's definitely a keeper!
