Snow Flurries

This was my card for the recipe challenge design team this week. The challenge was to use felt, stickles or glitter, and an office supply. The snowflake from felt flurries is the felt, I used glitter on the snowman and the office supply is the paperclip on the edge of the main image.

Recipe: Stamps:Punch Pals
Ink: Jet Black Stazon, Real Red, Baja Breeze, Old Olive
Paper: Ski Slope Designer paper, Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Old Olive, Basic Black, Riding Hood Red
Other: Word Window punch, Felt Flurries, Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon, stampin' dimensionals, designer circle brads, dazzling diamonds glitter

I have had fun creating in my craft room this week. Sam, my 8 year old came in to see what I was working on. This is the conversation:

Sam: Whatcha doin?
Me: Making cards
Sam: Is that a Christmas card?
Me: Yes
Sam: Christmas? It's not even Halloween! That's just wrong!

I wasn't about to get into the whys with him. Speaking of Halloween, it's only 2 weeks away! It lands on a Friday this year. How fun! No school or work the next day.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cute cards! I am trying to make Christmas cards too, but it is hard to do in October...I agree Sam, it's just wrong (: I went to Target tonight, nothing good to alter ): I ended up buying $10 worth of junk for my kids, LOL!

This is SO cute! I love your paper clip as the office supply for the challenge. That snowman is so cute, especially the way you've coloured him (and your Sam story, SO funny. Heehee. We must seem weird to non-cardmakers!) :O)
