Christmas Cocoa By Stampin Up and me

Good morning dear all of you.
It is winter, so I really shouldn't be surprised that it snowed again here in Calgary. It is hard to appreciate those beautiful tiny snowflakes, when you have to shovel them away. While my daugther was admiring them, I sure had my workout, Wow, they are so heavy when they are all piled up :)

When I looked at the PPA Challenge #73 of this week, and the Paper Players Challenge, I knew I wanted to redeem those snowflakes again :) We were encouraged to use some lace on our creations. To be honest I don't have any lace in my collection of ribbon supplies, but I do have gorgeous Stampin Up punches that were ready to be used. + the Paper Players let us pick our favorite color to work with. Soft Suede.. No doubt aout that one. (pss: If you click on the 'Soft Suede , you can order this beautiful paper through my SU website).

So, I used the Whisper White card stock and the Soft Suede as the main colors for my card. I am almost having to stand up to type, because I am so pumped up. I love LOVE how this one turned out! Let me also quickly say that I OFCOURSE had to ad some beautiful pearls to this card. Just what it needed to add some bling :)

The Designer Series Paper is also from Stampin Up. It is now retired.. Wow, do I love it.. If I had known that I loved it so much then I would have ordered some more.. It's called 'Christmas Cocoa' DSP. The tiny birds are from the 'Northern Hearts' Hostess stamp set. If you have the chance try to get your hands on that set.. It is amazing. really!

Well.. I think I need to shovel again.. sigh.. If I wait any longer.. It will be even more intense to try to get it off the 30 steps that lead to our home..

Enjoy your day and if you are anywhere close to warm sunny weather.. enjoy it.. and say hi to the sun from me.. Tell him, I miss it's warmth :)
