My layout is about Christmas Traditions. I love this non-traditional snowman paper so I had to use it. The snowman paper is from Basic Grey. Its called Jovial-Button Nose. The other patterned paper is Jovial-Frosted Window.
The chipboard letters are Pink Paisley. I also used my Cricut to make the word Christmas and the a,t,and n in traditions. Lyrical Letters is the cartridge I used.
The snowman and snowflake are a Tim Holtz die called Winter Wonder.
I sprayed it all with apple green gimmer mist. I am so addicted to Glimmer Mist.

I made this card in about 10 min. Same paper line... I just used the 6x6 paper pad. The red paper is from this paper pad also. I distressed the snowman and the snowflake with Walnut Stain Distressed Ink. Snowman and Snowflake are the Tim Holtz die again. Joy is from from Tim Holtz Carnivale Alphabet Die. I wrapped brown fun fur around the card 3 times.

Here is my blog candy... some rhindstones from CTMH, pearls from Kaiser, a couple of cute acrylic stamps and a journalling book. Some of my blog candy is from Tara at Up The Street in Strathroy Ontario! Thanks Tara!
