Snowballs For Sale!

HI there. TGIF! Although I have a crazy busy weekend in store AGAIN! I am hoping to get some craft time in, but well frankly it isn't looking good...lol. So I took some time to craft last night. Here is one of the cards I made. I started by stamping the snow globe image from Repeat Impressions. I then used a gold colored pencil and some Gamsol to color the base of the globe. The penguin and the snowflakes are stickers I had in my stash. I layered that onto some light blue CS. I then used some snowflake PP I got at my crop last weekend for the one side, and I used the light blue CS again for the other side. I ran that through the cuttlebug. Last, I added the embellishments. Check this out.Guess what it is? It is earring! LOL. I have a neighbor who is this super nice 90 year old women. She is always giving me stuff she gets in the mail. She sends donations to various organizations, and they send her "treasures" in return. She always saves them and gives them to me and my girls. Well the other day she gave me these earrings. Now, I can't tell her no, so I took them. First, I don't do silver, 2nd, they are so not my style, 3rd...they will probably turn my ears green in 2 seconds. SO...I decided to use them on a card. I used wire cutters to cut the back pegs off, and then attached them to the corners of my card. I actually love the way they look on this card. Glad I was able to find a use for them!

Well have a fabulous weekend!

I am using this card for the following challenges:

Simon Says Challenge - Silver/Blue and White

What if Wednesday Sketch - Repeat Impressions

Cupcake Craft - Non- traditional Christmas

7 Kids College Fund Challenge - Winter Wonderland (all the snowflakes)
