Frosty Builders

     I have another A Day For Daisies digital stamp to share with you today.  This one, called Frosty, is from the December Club Kit.  You can find all the details about the kit club here and I have ADFD gift certificates in my blog candy giveaway.  :-)
     For my card I used some leftover Graphic 45 Christmas papers and did some machine stitching.  The image was colored with Distress inks.  The ribbon slider was cut with my brand new Memory Box die.  It was one of my purchases from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design with the gift voucher I won last month at The Outlawz.  Susana gave me some awesome service with a quick delivery, even during the holidays!  Anyway, the die is gorgeous and delicate and makes the ribbon poof up in the middle for a fun look.  I see future Memory Box die purchase in the cards for me.  :-)
     Here's another artsy view.  :-)  You can see the poof and the glitter.

     I have a couple of other things to share with you.  A few months back I created a little mini abum to showcase some of my favorite glass collectibles.  One of the things I make sure to do when we visit Gatlinburg is hit some of the shops there that specialize in glass.  I also found one at Dollywood.  Here are my new lovelies.
     Is that cow hilarious or what!  As you can see I love miniature tea sets too.  :-)
     Last, but not least, I wanted to show you the absolutely gorgeous tag that my wonderful friend Ira sent me from the Netherlands.  So pretty!  Thanks again Ira!

     That's it for show and tell and here is the list of challenges I'd like to enter my card into.

Fantastic snowman card! I love how you added the sentiment and the Snow! Love your sweet glass collection! The cow is very cute!

I love the cheesecloth behind your image. I thought that was what it was but had to read your supply list to be sure. Not sure I've ever seen it used on a card, but it totally works! You did a great job with our sketch for challenge #2. Thanks for playing along at Seems A Little Sketchy! Hope to see you back soon for challenge #3.

Your new glass pieces are beautiful...the cow's a hoot! lol I have a few pieces myself that I collected years ago! I also have a small collection of miniature tea sets.
