Exciting News!!!!!

Happy dance! Happy dance!
I am so excited!!!!! I have been invited to join the Design Team of CR84FN Color Challenge!
CR84FN has been one of my very favorite challenge blogs for a very long time...so when the fabulous
Mona asked me to join, I said YES! YES! YES! The other designers are fabulous, too! Always great inspiration and wonderful ideas! So please check them out! I have all their names listed in my sidebar.

Well... on to this week's color challenge!


And here is my card....

I know you don't see many snowmen in purple scarves, but isn't he a cutie???
He is from the Holiday Hugs (MFT) stamp set. I colored him with SU watercolor pencils. I just watched an awesome coloring video by Jen Shults! (I still need to practice, because I have been a little fearful of coloring stamps, but I am trying to get braver!)


The snowflakes -Joys of the Season Cricut cartridge-were cut with very shiny gold glitter paper, as well as the inverted scallop circle behind the snowman. INR it adds great sparkle to the card!

Please check out the wonderful creations from the other designers!

Thanks for stopping by!
Mackie
