Dies R Us - Blue Christmas

Hello Friends!
Will you be having a White Christmas this year?  
I know some of you have already experience some amazing snowfall amounts!
Here in Ohio we haven't seen much yet but hopefully there will be a LITTLE
on the ground for Christmas morning (but not too much mind you!  lol)

Today I have a card to share for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog and I've based it on the 'white stuff'!  
Did you know there is a NEW inspiration sample shared each day Monday through Friday
from the team at the Inspiration Blog?  Be sure to pop over and see for yourself!


With so many beautiful holiday die cuts available at the Dies R Us store,
I'm afraid you're going to be seeing MORE holiday
cards from me throughout the month (possibly even into the New Year! lol)

The dies I've used today are:

These distressed corner dies are FABULOUS and there are other (besides holiday) designs available also.  You'll want to be sure and check them out ... makes a beautiful corner embellishment!

And this Impression Obsession large snowflake is one of my FAVORITES!  
I love using the 'negative' of this die and you don't just get one die cut when you run it through your die cutting machine . . . you get FOUR ... how awesome is that!!!  So many options from just one die!
Here I've used the largest to frame my image by simply adhering it here and there 
around the front & back of my image.  What a BEAUTIFUL die ... you'll definitely want this one in your collection!

Christmas is coming FAST so I'll keep this short & sweet!

Please be sure to pop over and join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.
New challenges offered on the 1st and 15th of each month.
YOU could be the next winner of a Dies R Us gift voucher!
Hope to see you there!
