Let it Snow

Hello friends!  Today we're celebrating the upcoming holidays with a holiday blog hop from The Craft's Meow!  If you're here from Jean's blog, you're in the right spot.  If not, head over to the TCM blog to get started!

I chose to use Christmas Cheer which was one of the sets released in October and I just adore the whimsical imagery of this set!  I started off with a little paper bag (like the ones you get scones in from a bakery or coffee shop) and stamped the snowflake in white craft ink.  I then tore some white glitter cardstock to make a snowy bluff for the little snowman and trees to sit.  When I cut out the snowman and trees, I covered them with Glossy Accents and then covered them with chunky glitter.  I just love how that looks!  I finished the snowman with some red Stickles and added some pewter sequins to the bag for some added sparkle (not like it really needed it, I just love sequins!)  :)  I folded the top of the bag over and punched some holes in the top to thread some white satin ribbon to close the bag.  I really like how this turned out and will be entering it into the Moxie Fab Stitching and Sewing Challenge, too!  

Now for the prizes!  Make sure to comment along the way to be eligible to win your choice of stamp set from TCM!  Comments must be left by 9pm PST, Wed Nov 14th.  

Thanks so much for visiting today!  Next up is Jen with some more fabulous holiday inspiration!
