Holiday Lineup... Be Merry!

I thought it was fitting to make a card today with Snowman and Snowflakes being it feels like winter around here... ha! This afternoon I made some time to stamp and pulled out my DP from last years SU! Country Living Holiday Packet.

The card I CASE'd was from Debbie at Debbie P's Place. She is so inspiring and it's always fun to visit her blog... take a peak!!


I used my "fun" new SU! snowflake punch and added a button with twine. I don't have the Nestie oval dies, but have a scallop scissors that works perfect. In the second photo, I used my Gelly Roll pen which is perfect for fine detail glitter effects. (Click on the photo for a closer look!)

ENJOY! I'm off to watch Desperate House Wives... Dancing with the Stars tomorrow night! Have a great week and think STAMPING thoughts!

SMILES... Michelle :)

Incredibly festive and cheery. The colors and papers work so well together that the whole ensemble gives off that festive feeling. I'm a DHW fan too...can't wait to see how this season pans out. This is the only kinda drama in my life that I actually like...LOL!

Oh how funny!!!! I saw this pop up and thought - yay my favourite set and Michelle's done it sooo nicely - and then I saw MY name - LOL.
Love this of course - LOL - and that snowflake punch better head our way soon - the "stripe" down it's spine is the perfect finishing touch!

WOW Michelle, I can't believe you cut that out with decorative scissors. I am going to pretend there is a flaw under that beautiful snowflake to make me feel better ;) I hope the weather warms up a little for you (it is supposed to get in the 70's here today after 32 yesterday!)
If you have a Hobby Lobby, their spellbinders (including nesties) are on sale for 40% off this week!

This is one of my favorite SU sets. I did a Packer card using this set a few weeks back. I love the colors you chose and the fun DP. I love that snowflake and the glitter highlights. I'll be casing this one for sure:))

Oh Michelle, this is sooooo cute! I love that line-up of snowmen. You and Debbie are sorely tempting me to get that set! And I had no idea how cute that snowflake punch was until now. Hmmm... you are an enabler!!!

I'm so impressed that you hand cut your scalloped oval. You are GOOD!!!

Now on to see what else I've missed while sleeping...

Hugs and love,
Lisa

Michelle, this is soooooo cute! I love snowmen and your card couldn't be any cuter!!
So glad to see you back bloggin! I've been swamped lately and haven't had the time I would like to spend surfing. Things are slowing down and I'll be back! Hope all is well with you!

Hi Michelle
nice to see what you've been up. Isn't this a great stamp? I like to imagine the funny conversation those snowy guys are having while they stand around in the crowd. Think I'll have to borrow this one from Debbie next time I'm over there...

Oh,I am behind! Last week Feedblitz decided to stop delivering my blog subscriptions! I'm not gonna lie....it took me a few days to catch on! So, now I am getting them again, but I missed that whole week. I figured I better check in with you and I see you've made TWO cards! Things are looking up! I just love the details with your glitter pen! I must get one! And as I told you before, you AMAZE me with your scalloped scissors. You are the master!

Hugs!
