You've GOT to check this out! :)

yep, it's another post from me today.... but this will be sooooooooooo worth your while! :)

I had told you last week that I was accepted onto the fabby new DT over at Dilly Beans. and if you were reading between the lines and listened to all of my hints and didn't get knocked over by my nudges, you knew something was coming soon! ;) well TODAY IS THE DAY!

Megan has a fabby FREE snow family digi image she is giving away for a limited time to anyone who wants to play along in a great challenge to kick things off! man oh man, you oughta see the prizes! but don't listen to me, race over to the challenge blog! :) you have until Dec. 19 to get your project made and linked.

here is a card that I made using the cutey image. I tried several 'new-to-me' techniques that I discovered over in the Classroom at Ellen Huston's. it's always fun to try new things and I must say that I don't do it enough....

papers are Fancy Pants Tradition and Recollections (music). FaLaLa is a Sizzix die, as are the largest 2 snowflakes. the other 2 snowflakes are MS punches. all were lightly sponged with crumb cake ink and then sprayed with frost shimmer spray. the music paper was also inked and sprayed in the same manner. I added little baby stitches around the words to make them pop a bit & baby buttons to mark the center of the "A". stickles and shimmerz paint were used on several of the hats for sparkle.

Hey Jennifer! What a great card! I haven't been to Ellen Hutsons site in a while, but I probably should get over there and catch up from the looks of this card. I'm actually playing with some corrugated cardboard right now for a card. LOL All that inpiration you kept giving me had to be satisfied. :-) Thanks so much for entering your adorable card in our challenge this week at The Kraft Journal!
