Sisterhood - Celebrating January

Happy Wednesday Friends!
January is in full swing and the ladies of The Sisterhood of Crafter are back from holiday and anxious to share a new challenge.  The theme for the next couple of weeks is a fun one . . . check it out!
Diane is our hostess and she's asked us to 'Celebrate January' by using any of the words or themes in the board above!  I chose Snowflakes!  I figure since a snowman is created using a whole bunch of snowflakes,  he qualifies!  LOL

 I have a variety of snowman stamps but I liked the simplicity of this OLD Stampin' Up stamp.   Plus I got to use a few things that were sitting on my worktable for this creation.  Some of the new snowflake dies I have create some gorgeous snowflakes as the 'negative' portion to the die so of course I've saved them to use on such creations as today's.

And you can't have a wintry snowflake card without sparkle!  So I quickly ran a layer of Nuvo glue over each snowflake and sprinkled lavishly with Deco Art Glamour Dust.  So pretty!

I've used the new Tutti Designs Stitched Circle dies to cut my snowman and matting.  With a little larger margin between the two dies, I decided to draw little snowflakes with a white gelly roll pen as an added accent to Mr. Snowman.

Love, love your little fellow with his sparkle-y snowflakes, such a cute stamp and happy guy, just perfect for the challenge! The background paper is fabulous as well, reminds me of swirling snow! Couldn't be any more perfect for the challenge!

I remember that snowman! I never had him, but my friend once spent $117 at an SU! party so she could make the card that was demonstrated. Aren't we all crazy with this stuff? Sheesh! But he looks so cute on your card, and I love the itty bitty snowflakes you created, and the swirly paper. It sure looks like a celebration of January!
