A frostier Christmas

     Gosh a whole week without a post.  I have been super busy trying to finish up some guest work, plus now that I'm trying to squeeze in my 10,000 steps a day for FitBit I've got even less time in the day to play with my cardmaking.
     It is Bellarific Friday though so I have some Stamping Bella goodness to share with you.  Last weeks challenge was this cool sketch.

     I've used the fun Frostier for my card.  You can't see it in the photo, but I went over his scarf with some gold H20's and it adds some fun sparkle, almost like the scarf has gold threads woven in it.  I hand cut the banner.  The stamping look gold in the photo but it's platinum.
     You can hop over to Blogabella and see what my teamies and those who played along with this sketch have created.
Next weeks challenge is "Holiday Wishes".  Just use a current Stamping Bella stamp and get your creation mailed to Emily by next Thursday to be in the run for the monthly $50.00 Bella Bucks prize
     Have a blessed weekend!

  1. YEAH! You're back! That fit thingy works. My mom has lost 10 pounds so far and only had it a short time. I think that's wonderful. I did miss seeing you post, but what you're doing is so worth it. FABULOUS card. The watercolor blend to this I couldn't stop looking at. I do love the gold in the scarf and just the image is precious. Really wonderful Christmas greeting.
    Happy weekend to you!!!

  2. OMGoodness, that is such a CUTE image, and SO beautifully colored! I can see just a touch of that gold sparkle in the scarf, and I love that extra little touch. I think the crisp white image circle and card background look amazing with the papers you chose. And love that beautiful platinum embossed sentiment banner. Everything just pops!
