Hello and Happy Weekend to you all!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Can you believe it's December already!!
And since it's the first of the month we have a new challenge for you at ABC challenges...

Clear it Out

We want to see you use up some of your old things.

Our sponsor this time is
Stamp Fairy,


 they have some really cute digistamps in their store, do go check them out, there is something for everyone!


Here is what I created using two of Stamp Fairy's images.

 Back in June I was the lucky winner of a challenge sponsored by Stamp Fairy, and these two stamps were two that I chose for my prize. I've been wanting to create my card with these for a long time, finally I had a chance to do so.

I printed the trees onto some old Stampin Up designer paper (I flipped one of the trees), and then I cut them out. The snowman was printed on white card stock and also cut out.
I created some snow by tearing white paper scraps and adding glitter to the torn edges. the trees and snowman were tucked under the "hills" to create some dimension.

The paper that I used for the "sky" is also from an old Stampin Up designer paper pack. So glad I was able to use these papers, I think they are gorgeous, but you all know how easy it is to push old papers back and always reach for the new stuff.

I colored the snowman with copics. The sentiment is from the set by "Winter Letter Seals" whimsy stamps. I embellished with an old SU button that I had for ages.

I would love to enter my card to the following challenges
 
 Thanks so much again for visiting. I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
