Christmas Card, Drawing for a Kit and a Fun Snowman

Well I was informed today from a friend that I had not put anything new on my blog for some time!  (Thanks Lin!)  Can't get by with anything!!!  So I'll put a couple things on, now that I figured out where my camera was!!!

This is a similar version of a card I did for a Floral Punch Class.  I happen to have an extra kit, so if you are interested, anyone leaving comments or signing on as a follower will be put in a drawing for the kit to make this card.  It is pretty easy and everything is ready except the white dots that you can add with a white gel pen.  I even scored the leaves for you!  It will include a picture with a couple of tips on the construction.  You also need foam tape and adhesive to put it together.  Saturday, Midnight DST, November 7th I'll draw a name and you will have till Tuesday, Midnight DST November 10th to contact me by E-mail with your snail mail address.
International welcome too!!!

Supplies used:  Verse is a very old Stampendous stamp, Spellbinders Lattice Borderabilities, Large Circle Nestabilities, Inverted Circle Nestabilities, Cuttlebug Floral Corners Die and Snowdots Embossing Folder, Punch Bunch Large Holly punch, White Gel Pen, Gold Cord, Red Beads, Gold Wire and Foam Tape

Oh what fun it is to use Snowmen stamps!  But of course, I had to 3D him too!  Colored this with Ranger Distress Inks and a waterbrush.  Sponged the edges with DI and added some Stickles of different colors.  Also used a Martha Stewart border punch, EK corner punch and added a gold cord bow.

JUST A TIP:  if you are like me with never ending growing supplies in your stamp or craft room.  The names are not on all the supplies we buy, only the packaging.   So when it comes to making up supply lists, it is hard to track down the actual name of things sometimes.  Well, my memory retention is not increasing like my supplies!!!  So when I get something new now, I am writing the name on it someplace with a permanent pen so when I list the supplies used on a card, it will be easier to find.
Oh, the joys of aging!!!!

Thank you for stopping by and I really appreciate the wonderful comments that you have left!  More things in the works!  How can I want another punch????  I don't know, but I do!!!!

Hi Patti Jo!
I love your Christmas card. It is so lovely and cheerful. I avhe tried to find that embossing folder that you have used. Did Cuttlebug bring it out?
I love your other card as well.
I love how you have coloured it with distressing inks. Very well too I might add.
Super job of both cards.
Hugs Marion

I ABSOLUTELY love this easel card, on a mission to try and make on. So glad I found your blog. Your punch flowers are wonderful. I just started getting into making them myself. THANKS SO MUCH for the inspiration. Tammie
