"Bling" in the New Year!

Every month my blogging group, Crafters of Faith has a blog hop.  Kelly is our hostess and the theme is snowy and wintery.  I want to "SNOW" you my winter inspired card, although we have not had one ency snowflake come our way this winter.  I am celebrating the gift of this beautiful season - snow, winter and of course snowflakes! 


I used the Poppy Stamps Madison Window die and a beautiful snowy window stamp from Memory Box.  I sponged faded jeans distress ink on my stamped image and embossed snowflakes for my panel.  I added snowflakes from EK success and glued gems to the center of the snowflakes for that extra "bling".  This was fun and I finally used my new Imaginisce i-rock tool that has been sitting in a craft drawer for ever!

I want to thank everyone for visiting our hop today, I love receiving comments and I'm sure my blogging friends would love to hear your comments too - their blogs are listed on my sidebar.    I'd like to wish everyone a very happy, peace- filled and prosperous New Year!

Lovely, lovely card, Marsha! It looks like it took a long time to make, but oh boy, it was worth the time! Simply a beautiful, snowy scene. Love all of the colors and textures you've created. Best wishes for the coming New Year and I am so glad to be in COF with you!

Oh sweet friend, we haven't had any snow come our way yet either - ROFL! But I'm always hopeful! *smile!*

Your card is just beautiful! WHat a dazzling, shiny, sparkling beautiful representation of winter and the 'snow much fun' we'll have in 2013!

Blessings!

What a beautiful collection of snowflakes! I have not experienced much snow in my life, but I was always impressed as a child when I learned that each snowflake is uniquely different from the others although they have six points. Just another way to be amazed by our God, the creator.
