Sunday, January 4, 2015


Welcome to the fourth day of January 2015. How many of you keep putting 2014 when your writing the date? I probably would if I didn't have my planner beside me everyday. This year is starting off right where I left off. Nothing ever changes for me in a new year. I didn't even make a New Year's resolution. As a matter of fact, I was in bed by 10:00 pm. Some people just have to say something to you to put you in a bad mood when you just want to have a nice evening. This is actually the first year that I wasn't up at midnight. I don't feel like I missed anything though. 

Now on to our first challenge of the New Year and Robyn's Fetish Shop is going to be our first sponsor of the year. Is this not great. We all know that she has the best images to work with. This week I worked with "Carl The Snowman." There were many cute snowmen to choose from but he is the one I chose. He is all dressed up for a day outside. Probably made by cute little kids. So, before you see Carl, I'm going to tell you about what Robyn is giving away this week for the winner.

Now, I'm going to show you Carl The Snowman.

I tried to make the picture not glare with the glitter but it kind of did. This paper was perfect for my image. I have been wanting to use it for a long time and I finally did. I just wish I had more of it. I tried to use some embellishments to match the snowman. I also tried to make a some what snowflake behind the snowman. Not the greatest but I just couldn't get it to work out the way I wanted it. I hope you like it. Here are the products that I used to make this card.

Cardstock -- The Paper Studio
Glitter Cardstock -- Doodlebug Design Inc.

Snowflake Ribbon -- Spool Of Ribbon
Teardrop Pearls -- ribbonFX

I hope you liked this first post of 2015. There will be many more this year that will be fun and have great prizes. The design team made their own snowman cards so just head on over to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and check them all out. Then when you get some inspiration make a snowman card and enter it on the same page. Have a Terrific Sunday and a Wonderful Week.

Michelle, This card is beautiful! I love all the elements to it. The layout is perfect. I love the blue white glitter paper behind the snowman. The teardrop pearl border is gorgeous. I have not seen that before. Thanks for sharing. Edwina Brown
