Concord & 9th has a new challenge with the key word being "celebrate" to coordinate with the launch of their challenges.  I have a few of their stamps and love their fresh designs.  I use their Sophisticated Script alphabets all the time to address envelopes - really impressive!

I die cut the two flowers and smooshed them in HA copper embossing powder twice to give a heavy metallic look.  The patterned paper is from Target's $ bin - gorgeous stuff!  The sentiment is from PTI - stamped in black and clear embossed to make it nice and shiny.  Added a few black enamel dots - done and dusted.

Thanks for visiting today and always love to read your kind comments!

One last entry for this month's CAS Mix-Up challenge to use marbling, stamping and a choice (die cuts).

I die cut the HA leaves from a piece that I had marbled with shaving creme and reinkers and then stamped the veins with HA copper embossing powder.  The strips on the left were another piece of marbled paper and a piece I made by embossing it with more copper.  Pico dots and a simple sentiment completed the card.

and warm ears and hands and feet!!  The theme this week at Merry Monday is "keep warm" and I immediately thought of my SSS "Ready, Set, Snow" kids!

So I colored my little girl with Zigs, made a snowy embossed background and a couple of snowbanks, added a few sequins and a little glitter - and done!  The sentiment (an old one from Technique Tuesday) was stamped in black and clear embossed.  She's pretty cute, isn't she!!! - and you know I never do "cute"!!

Am really late in getting my Merry Monday card done and it really didn't turn out like I envisioned - but am going to have to run with it.

I used my new HA layering snowflakes with frames to make the shaker and the sentiment is also from a new HA set.  I wish the frame part looked more like snowflakes shakes really nicely!!
