Snowflake Spot


Happy Saturday, peeps!  I actually got in some stamping time this afternoon and played with a few challenges I haven’t played in a while!  The JUGS challenge #202 is a monochromatic blue:

Just Add Ink #178 wants snowflakes, and the Pals Paper Arts #168 has a great sketch:
I whipped up this really simple Christmas card using a retired SU set, The Snowflake Spot, and some DP from last year’s  International Bazaar:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Stampin Up Snowflake Spot Christmas

I added some embossing, glimmer paper and the cool new silver ribbon from the Holiday mini.  I rarely use Pacific Point, so this was a nice change for me!


And another Christmas card for my stash! 

I finished Cassidy’s cupcakes for her party tomorrow….Dana is having a “picnic” theme.  Unfortunately, Cassidy was running a fever today, just not herself, so I am hoping that she’ll be on the mend by the time the party starts tomorrow!  Poor thing….it’s never fun to be sick but on your birthday?  That really stinks!!!  Anyway, here’s a quick pic of one of the watermelon cupcakes I made:


And one of the the little pumpkin from yesterday, before her birthday trip to the zoo!


Enjoy your afternoon---be sure to stop back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!

  1. Great card! So happy to see that set being used. It's in my stash, too! Happy birthday to the cutie pie, hope she feels better. The cupcake is almost as cute as her!

  2. Lovely card! Good for you to get ahead one them! Yummy looking cupcakes. Hope the birthday girl is doing better! Thanks for playing with Just Us Girls!

  3. I love this bright blue and white Christmas card! These colors say "joy" to me! I hope Cassidy is recovered and able to enjoy her birthday party! Like the new look here!

  4. Yumm Water melon cup cake. That sounds great! My oldest son was sick every year on his birthday until he was 5 and we got his allergies under control. His birthday is April 1st. He would have an ear infection. Pool little girl I hope she is feeling better.
    Very pretty card. Love that blue.

  5. You do blue so well.....and looks like you do cupcakes well also! Hope the birthday girl feels better for her big day! She is one cutie pie!

  6. Pacific Point is not one of my "go to" colours, either, LeAnne - but wow, it looks fabulous with white and silver! LOVE your card. Thank you for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  7. Cute winter card LeAnne! I sure hope Cassidy feels better, poor little thing. She looks sweet all dressed up for her trip to the zoo !

  8. I love the blue & white along with the glimmer. Makes me think of snow sparkling in the sunshine. I also like the embossing on the panel, it looks really great with the silver ribbon. Thanks for joining us a the PPA this week and I hope Cassidy feels better!
