Joy to the World

Happy New Year everyone!! We had quite a New Year celebration...complete with two sick kids, a husband who needed stitches in his finger, and a serious lack of sleep! Goodness, what a start to 2012!! I'm praying that the rest of the month is a bit calmer!

Today's card is one that I created for a Splitcoast CAS design team challange. I did make it to round two with this card but failed to make it to the finish line. Humm...no problem, I did mange to grab a guest spot and I'm very happy and thankful about that! (I'll be a guest in the Feb. time frame)

I created the snowman by using the Tim Holtz snowman die and then added color with Distress Ink. I used a script stamp, also from Tim, to add more design to the snowman. The hills were hand cut and I used a Quickie glue pen to add a tiny bit of glitter to the hills. The scarf is seam binding from The Cat's Pajamas (love this stuff!) and the button is from Papertreyink. **Tip** I was able to get that crinkled look on the scarf by spraying water on the ribbon and scrunching it tightly into a little ball. I then carefully used my heat gun to dry the ribbon. When the ribbon is completely dry, it remains crinkled...love it! The designer paper is from Little Yellow Bicycle and the sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy.

Enjoy and best wishes for 2012!!
