Snow Baby #8 for Card a day challenge
I have no idea why I'm so obsessed with snow these days. Its been YEARS since I've had to drive in it, shovel it, or otherwise deal with the negative aspects so I apologize to all of you who are up to your necks and praying for a thaw. Today is day 8 of Jen's card a day challenge and I'm thrilled to have completed and photo'ed it while it's still daylight. This one's been in my mind for awhile because I simply ADORE this little stamped baby face. (When I made Christmas tags with it DH said it was creepy but that still didn't stop me. LOL) I put her in the center of the snowflake from Accent Essentials and used the circle Alphaclips feature from the Tear Drop cartridge to spell out the rest of snow, then cut the word "baby" twice on shadow. I cuttled the snowflake and the circles behind the letters with Swiss dots and the snowflake folder and popped everything for dimension. The papers are mainly My Mind's Eye and I got a bit carried away with the embellies using foam snowflakes, skittles, pompoms, fiber, ribbon and stickles with reckless abandon. I had a ball indulging my girly side though I have no idea what I'll use this for. LOL I suppose it could be for a winter baby. Be sure to click HERE to stop by and see Jen's progress. She has really helped me get over my slump.
