Winter Wishes

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!  Our world is white here and the temperatures have been a bit cold (although they're supposed to head above the freezing mark later this week).  At My Craft Spot, we're adding some sparkle and shine to our lives with this week's challenge! 

Although I did pack away some of my craft supplies for our time of transition (living with my mum while we continue our house hunt), I did bring a number of items.  I tend to be incredibly organized with everything labelled.  However, for some reason, I did not label the bin with my stamp blocks and cleaner.  I was just about to write an incredibly apologetic email to Kimberly and, from my seated vantage point, I saw my cleaning spray through the side of a clear bin and knew that all was good in my world once again!!


My card was a quick one to put together - but a difficult one to photograph! It really does look better in person.  The little snowflake in the middle of my card was cut with a Sizzix die.  I used a face stamp from the Jar Full of Fall stamp set to give my snowflake a bit of personality and used two blue gems for his rosy cheeks.  The larger stamped snowflakes are from White Christmas and the little ones are from Jar Full of Christmas.  I also used White Christmas for the "Winter Wishes" sentiment on my snowflake-punched border along the bottom.  I finished everything off with some little gems on my snowflakes and some glittery silver to dot the i's of the sentiment.

Please head over to My Craft Spot to see what the rest of the design team has created for our Sparkle and Shine challenge - and then link up your own project for a chance to win this week's prize!
