Double challenge

Hello all.....I'm in a bit of a rush because today is an early day...the kids get out at 1:00 & I have a conference with a teacher. I bought this Penny Black stamp last week at a rummage sale at my LSS.....I've always loved this snowman & I sure can't beat what I paid for him!!



I had every intention of trying to use my Copics, since there isn't much coloring & I really need practice. But I have no Copic NEAR burgundy, which was my main color!! So....Prismas & gamsol it was, lol!! This is for yesterday's SCS sketch challenge, & today's WT challenge, to layer embellishments. Not a problem for me, I love layers, whether it's cardstock or embellishments!! The papers are from the DCWV Christmas stack from last year ~~ I just love that polka dot paper. I added some piercing & some brads, ran the olive layer through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder, then went to work on my layered embellishements. I punched the big flower out of vellum, something I really need to use more of. The bigger snowflake is punched from the same DCWV green as my layers, & the small snowflake is Cranberry Crisp. I added a brad & some glitter, & hung a snowflake charm from the whole kaboodle.





Well I hate to rush off but I will probably be late as it is....I *hate* being late. See what blogging has done to me???

Don't forget to enter my blog candy above!! You have until next Wednesday at noon CST. Thanks for visiting!!
