Good morning everyone! I must start off by saying.... WOOO HOOOO!!!! I have reached 200 followers! I am going to do a giveaway of some kind, so keep your eyes peeled for that! :) It will be my first giveaway, so I'm a bit nervous (not sure why).... But, I really want to do this because I want to say THANK YOU to all of the people who are taking the time to visit and follow my blog! I can't believe that with all of the talent out there, my little blog reached 200!!! Okay, onto my card for today...
Bitten by the Bug 2- use a penguin (I don't own Jolly Holidays, so I used Joys of the Season)
My Craft Spot- Christmas in July
Jingle Belles- O Hole-y Night: create a card with a window in it (I love the name of this challenge) :)
Paper Cutz Challenge- anything goes
Peachy Keen LFIF Challenge- use a pun (I LOVE puns) and a PK face
Cricut cartridges used:
Joys of the Season- penguin cut at 3.35"
Wild Card- card base cut at 5.59"
Winter Woodland- snowflakes cut at 1", 1.55", 1.86"
Peachy Keen Stamps- Critter Faces SET A Medium & Winter Face Assortment
Sentiment from my computer- Curlz MT font, size 18
Martha Stewart Ink: sea lavender & ocean
Mini snowflake stamp
A la Mode sparkle embossing powder

Brad for the spinner
**I'm so excited because I made my own background paper! To make it I stamped a mini snowflake (I don't even know the brand of the stamp) with Versamark Ink in various places on the white paper. Then I sprinkled the embossing powder over it and heat embossed the snowflakes. I then took my MS sea lavender ink and dabbed it over the entire card (and it doesn't stick to the embossed images). I inked the edges of the card with MS ocean ink.
