Snowflakes are Kisses

I LOVE this sentiment. . .especially on a day like today when it is snowing! I made this card for last week's Sketch Challenge on SCS. I used the Snowflake Kisses set from Paper Pretties. The paper is from one of my Paper Pretties subscription boxes. Even though it's not really the same color, I thought the satin Purely Pomegranate ribbon matched pretty well. I colored in the snowflakes with Rose Red ink and a blender pen, then added Stardust Stickles on top. The largest snowflake has "bling" in the center. Hope you like it!

The other thing I'd like to share with you today is a card I got from my upline, Kathy. Well, actually the card was for Savannah as well. See, my husband and I got Savannah a CuttleKid for Christmas. For those of you who don't know, that's a junior version of the Cuttlebug. Savannah LOVES it! She loves it so much that anytime anyone comes to the house, she has to bring it out and show them how it works! Kathy and her husband came for a visit and sure enough, Savannah had to make Kathy some flowers. I was so surprised to get this card in the mail. Kathy took some of the flowers that Savannah made her and some patterned paper that I gave her and made this card to send as a thank you. I thought it was incredibly creative. . .and it just tickled Savannah to see the flowers she made on a card from Kathy! Thank you, Kathy! We absolutely LOVE the card! Savannah can't wait for your next die-cutting session! LOL


SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Snowflake Kisses (Paper Pretties); Paper- Cloud Nine, Whisper White; Ink- Bravo Burgundy, Rose Red, Regal Rose (SU); Accessories- Stardust Stickles, satin Purely Pomegranate ribbon, bling.

I love that ribbon...so much I hate to use it :) I got my daughter a cuddlekids machine as well. The only thing I don't like is that none of the stores carry the die-cuts in my area, so I have to buy everything online.

those snowflakes are very cool, and cuttlebug kid--that's news to me! a bit scary to me that the crafting industry is marketing something like that to kids, but hey, if it helps them express their creativity, that's good.
