Okay....Thanksgiving is over so we can now look forward to Christmas! Here is a darling Snowman card I'll be teaching to a class. The snowman is colored using the TJ technique called Distress Ink Watercoloring. Really easy with great results. The background of the card is made using the TJ technique called Distressed Spritzing. I used a stencil from The Crafter's Workshop. The snowflake is a punch from EK Success. Hope you enjoy!

Cute little snowmen!

I've been working really hard getting things done for my upcoming vendor spot at the University Club of Portland.

My goal was to have 35 snowglobes done for that sale (plus the 15 from special orders).  That's 50 total to do.  CRAZY!  Anyways.........I don't normally do too many of the snowmen because they are crazy involved.  There are 12 pieces and each needs to be colored on both sides.  AND when they are done they are only 2" Tall!!!!   Hope you enjoy those little masterpieces!!  If you are interested in making your own snowglobes.......head on over to Some Assembly Required!  Tell Sandy I sent you.  I don't get anything for it, just thought she'd like to know.  The dies are called Slice Forms on the site.

PCP's winner of the week was ME!

Have you ever visited Paper Craft Planet?  No?  Here is a link.

They have all kinds of challenges, free digis, and giveaways all the time.  Susanna Boyd does a great job with the site and I think you'll enjoy it if you go.

Well........they had this really great tutorial on how to use Dreamweaver stencils, adhesive sheets, glitter and Tim Holtz distress powders.  (HINT:  you may have to log in to view the tutorial)   AWESOME!  BUT.....what was even more awesome was that they had a weekly giveaway of a stencil from Stencil with Style and this week it was ME!!

Now the hard part will be to pick ONE.
