A Holiday Card for 4 Challenges


Cuttlebug Mania's challenge is anything goes with embossing, whereas Jingle Bells has "tic tac toe" this week. I went with the top row - snowman, glitter and embossing. 




The stamps are from Rubber soul. I fuzzy cut the snowman and propped up the different layers with foam tape to make it 3-D. The nose is paper-pieced. The embossing folder is from Cuttlebug. I smeard some Stickles on top of the snowflakes to add the glitter.




Addicted to CAS has a Holiday theme and I am submitting this card to that challenge as well. And Dynamic Duos has black and light aqua with optional embossing - I hope they can forgive me the orange nose.....
Simon Says has MONOCHROMATIC as a theme ans yes, there is that orange nose , but one of their DT members also featured snowmen with orange noses, so I guess I'll get by....





Are you ready for more Canada pictures? The first seven pics are taken along the Icefield Parkway. We did a short hike to the Parker Ridge trail and you see my son on top of it there. It was quite cold and windy up there. Luckily previous visitors had erected a little wind shelter, which we enjoyed.
