Double Dose of Challenges......

Good Morning!
AND Happy New Year!!!
I hope all is off to a good start for all of you.

Today is a new challenge over at Wild Orchid Crafts and
Belles and Whistles.  With the start of a new year they
are both falling on the same day now.
The fabulous sketch is the new challenge at WOC and
this week at BNW I got to choose the challenge and I
went with "Snowflakes".  I was hard up for time so I
combined them into one card:

Now with all the shimmer and glitter it was so hard for me to get
a decent picture! The sentiment was especially hard and it reads
Let It Snow.  Don't know why it shimmers so much!  Isn't this
image just darling!!!!! She was a stamp that was released just
for the heck of it at the beginning of December! You can find

I decided to make a card with an ornament in it. I just adhered
it with a foam dot and it slides on and off pretty easy.
The papers are Webster's Pages, the snowflakes are a
die from WOJ and the glitter is Martha Stewart.

As you can see from the above picture I have used some rhinestone
gems. WELL they are now available at WOC. AND they
have a boatload of colors!!!  Also they now have the most
gorgeous hip rosebuds and open roses I have ever seen and the size is perfect!
You can find all of them here in the New Products section.
The lace is also from WOC as well.

Well that is it from me for today!
Thanks so much for stopping by and again I
hope you all have the happiest New Year!

Lovely card xx
It is annoying when all the glitz do not allow a perfect pic! Been there, done that & wore the t-shirt Lol as I suppose every crafter out there as.

This is a great sketch & think I am going to have a go too x
