Exciting News and Cute Card!

Hello all my crafty friends, today I have some great news to share-well good news for me. lol I was asked to stay on the design team at My Paper Crafting!!!  What an honor to be asked to stay on after the 25 Days were up. There are such talented ladies on this design team, I hope I can do the challenges justice!  Today starts off the New Year with a challenge using snowflakes.  They were going to be for the Sandy Hook community, they were going to hang snowflakes to welcome the students back at another school, but because of the overwhelming response they closed this up. How wonderful that they got so many snowflakes from around the world/and country that they could close it!! So my snowflake became a card instead. I used the Snowman v12 DS digi from Melin at Paper Crafting World.com that I colored with my alcohol markers and mounted onto a die shape. I printed my papers on my Cricut Imagine using the Mr. Frosty cartridge. I so love the Imagine even though I don't use it a lot.  Stamped my sentiment and then did the same for the inside and used a die of a snowflake cut in half.  I put some glitter on the snowflakes in the digi as well as my snowflake inside.  That's about it.  Didn't it turn out cute?!  I'm pleased with it anyway. lol And don't you just love the papers from Mr. Frosty?!  Love, love that snowflake paper! Oh and I did distress with distress ink in tea dye on the inside.  I hope you check out what my design team sisters have in store for you as well with the snowflake challenge.  They have amazing projects!!
