FFC #1 & Inkspirational #5~ Peace!

Well hello! Did you know there's a new challenge blog out there just waiting for you to play along? Well my very dear friend Geri of Paper Wishes is on the design team of Festive Friday. I'm sending a little love to her and the rest of the team by playing along! For their first challenge we've been given the colors of red, white and silver.

Grab Our Badge!

I don't do much embossing or use many metallics. But I do love me some red!! I decided to go really festive and fun with this cute snowman by Stampendous. I've accented my little frozen buddy with silver embossing, a silver gel pen and a glaze pen. The tiny star at the top of the hat is popped up along with the sweet jester-like collar. I had a couple of fun metal corners in my stash (left over from my son's wedding invitations!) and I think they anchor the card nicely. Seam binding, ribbon and twine back my jingle bell in a multi layered bow. Isn't this vintage tinsel fun! A PTI tiny tag dangling from it is home to a couple of embossed HA snowflakes and a MorningStar tiny sentiment.


It just so happens I have another sweetie pie blogging friend who started her own challenge blog not long ago. Mynnette of On a Stampage has an "Anything Goes" challenge this week on her Inkspirational challenge blog. I think this will fit the bill nicely so I can send a little love her way too!


I hope you have a great week. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit, it means the world to me and I appreciate your comments! ~Lisa
