Let It Snow

There were two sources of inspiration for the card I'm sharing today. The first was the adorable & festive pine snowflake decoration that I talked about in my Shop 52 Denver post yesterday! Click HERE to read that post and to enter my giveaway! The second source of inspiration came from the most recent challenge over at DeNami Design! The challenge is to use a paper punch of your choice and any DeNami Design stamp! Click HERE for all of the deets!


Here's my creation:


I thought it would be fun to create my own pine snowflake using my "Pine" paper punch (McGill) and a white uni-ball pen.


And of course I had to stamp my favorite "Falling Snow E94" (DeNami Design) in the background!!! By the way...did you watch the Charlie Brown Christmas special tonight?!?! Oh, how I LOVE that show!!! Melts my heart every time!


The sentiment is also from DeNami Design! It's part of the "Holiday Greetings Stamp Set TR07." Thanks to Michele for letting me borrow that during inky time today!!!

So...are you ready to get out your favorite paper punch and enter the DeNami Design Challenge?!?! I hope so! It's TONS of FUN, and you could win a $25 gift certificate to their online store! YAY! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Lisa, you have SO much patience! I can't believe you punched each pine and then added white with a pen! Seriously a patient crafter!

You have totally been rocking that Falling Snow stamp....now I'm thinking about pulling it out again! :) So glad that Michele let you borrow that sentiment- it works so well with this card!
