Snow Many Challenges


I am pushing through my lack of mojo, so even though I am creating, I am not necessarily thrilled with my outcome!  Anyway, this card is for three challenges:

  1. Create with Connie & Mary – Snow theme
  2. Card Pattern Sketch 96 (see below)
  3. SCS WT303 – Silver

Here’s the Card Patterns sketch:


And here’s my card:


Still trying to get some use out of my Jolly Old St Nick set---so I thought cute Mr Snowman would be a fun way to say thanks to one of my friends for a particularly nice Christmas gift!  The embossed panel is Brushed Silver; I used Silver Encore ink on the Pacific Point DP; the snowflake is also Brushed Silver, glittered up with some Dazzling Diamonds as well as a Glimmer Brad!  The tinsel is a fun touch as well.  He even has some silver buttons!


If you have any questions, just shoot me an email!  Thanks for visiting today!  And here’s a little pouty face for you to smile at:


She’s peeking out from behind her little car seat cover---not a happy camper!

Beautiful Card!
And thank goodness you posted that picture of sweet adorable Cassidy. I was wondering if that cutie smiled 24/7. Even pouting, she's adorable.
Happy New Year to you and your family, Leanne.

Leanne, your mojo certainly is there today! Love the silver embossed layer! Thanks for playing with us this week at Create with Connie & Mary!

The colors are fabulous and I love the embossing and silver tinsel! Gorgeous!
That little munchkin doesn't like being enclosed like that and I don't blame her! What a sad little face, just yearning for a big hug! You get some of the greatest photos of that little cutie pie!

Nothing wrong with your mojo LeAnne! This card is adorable--love the tinsel (of course) and the two-tone scallop circle--genius!

I like the card--it's very well done, but, I love the sweet little baby doll with the pouty face! She will surely get a chuckle out of that when she gets older! That look makes you just want to pick her up and squeeze her. So precious!

Don't know why you are disappointed with this card. I think it's fantastic. Love your creations.

Oh that is the first time I saw a sad face. She is adorable even when she is sad.
I love the card.

Love how you split the colors of the scallop circle in the background! I used that snowman for my Christmas Cards this year! Thanks for playing along with the Let It Snow challenge this week on Create with Connie and Mary!
