Sparkling Snowflakes


Happy Wednesday, everyone!  I have another Christmas card today to show you….I still haven’t sent mine out yet, but I’m working on it!  This is for three challenges:
So here is my snowflake-y, sparkly, joyous white and kraft tall card:

 LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Gentle Season Christmas Stampin Up

I know the word “joy” isn’t there, but the musical piece is “O Holy Night” (from Crafty Secrets’ Vintage Christmas CD), and happiness and peace certainly bring joy!  My glimmer paper snowflakes float down amidst some pretty white sequins, and I have stamped my Crumb Cake card with various retired SU snowflakes!


I had some pearls just right for the centers of my snowflakes, and they matched my sentiment stamped in Early Espresso!  I added some EE ribbon and I have another for my soon-to-be-sent stash!
We began our cookie-making yesterday, and Cassidy was quite helpful…this is the first time I let her take the butter out of the paper, although she just couldn’t keep her fingers out of the butter itself.  Of course, my motto is “Everything is better with butter” so I guess she gets it honestly!


She liked the batter too…and the chocolate chips….well, you get the picture!  We had lots of hand-washing going on!  Thanks for visiting today!

Hi LeAnne, I haven't mailed out my Christmas cards yet either, so don't feel too bad!! I love this card. I love the color combo of krafts and white, plus all the great snowflakes and ahhhh, that musical note paper. Just so pretty. A bit vintage-y. Love it. Thanks for joining us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday again this week!

Gorgeous card! Love the espresso and kraft with those snowflakes. Of course the cookie batter is yummy! I was trying to figure out when I'd have time to make cookies and it is looking like after Christmas. What the heck.... the pumpkin pie was made the Sunday after Thanksgiving and I think it was more appreciated then.
