In the meadow...

Good morning friends! I've been so absent from my blog recently I bet you thought I decided to stop crafting. Well, that is not the case I've just been super busy. I've started a new Dove Chocolate Discoveries business and have been working on getting bookings and such. I'm very excited about it but in no way does that mean that I will stop crafting or being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator so keep checking back to see new posts!

Today, since we are supposed to get some snow, I want to show you the punch art snowman card that we made at stamp club on Wednesday night. I would LOVE to say that I came up with this snowman idea but I did not. There is a wonderful blog called Paper Punch Addiction and Kim comes up with the neatest punch art then sells the directions for them at a very reasonable cost. So, I used the directions to make this super cute snowman with Shimmery White card stock then added some of the beautiful snowflake patterned paper from the Christmas Cocoa DSP pack. On top of the snowflake paper is a window sheet that has little snowflakes on it...it just adds to the cuteness of the whole thing. Then when I was done I decided it needed a little something else so I added the gold brads in the corners. Oh, and the 'Merry Christmas' sentiment is from the set called Christmas Greetings. I love this little set because it is an innie and outie set...a sentiment for the inside of the card and outside of the card...very convenient!

There you have it! I hope you like Mr. Snowman! Today is another run around and get things done day for me. Kyler is home from school today, too so he'll have homework to work on and he'll be packing to go to camp for the weekend. Busy day for sure but I'll be back tomorrow with my Utah Diva's International sketch card. Sometimes there is a bonus challenge attached to the card sketches and tomorrow there is a bonus challenge. I'm not telling you what it is but I will tell you that my card today has a hint on it. Wink

So, with that I'm out. Have a SUPER Friday everyone!
