I want to thank everyone who have stopped by and left such wonderful comments for me all week, I truly appreciate them all. I hope that I have given you some fun inspiration! I want to thank Jennifer for asking me to Guest Design for her! Jen, I had a BLAST!!! If you played along with our challenges during the week, make sure you head over to the Stamps and Smiles Blog to see if you are a winner!

Now on to my card that I promised you earlier today! With the I Love Snow set I have made a snowglobe, complete with shaking snow inside. I have used my circle and scallop circle nesties to create the snowglobe. Mr. Snowman was colored with my Copics and Twinkling H2Os.

Here's a close up of the cutie pie snowman from the set! Isn't he adorable? The stamped snowflakes inside the snowglobe and the white snowflakes on the dark blue scallop are also a part of this fantastic set! The white snowflakes on the dark blue scallop are stamped in White Staz-On and then I used my Clear Spica to color over them to give them some sparkle.
Here you can see the MS chunky snow and glitter inside.
I used some DCWV glittered white paper and my MS punch to make the bigger snowflakes. Then I used the same paper and punch smaller snowflakes, then colored them with Azure Smooch. I love the metallic look over the glittered paper! I hope you've enjoyed my Snowglobe card! I am overjoyed with how this turned out! Normally when I have a vision in my head, it can sometimes be hard to complete....but this turned out EXACTLY how I wanted it to!!! YAY!
