You're SNOW Cool!

Hi Stampers!

Hope your week is going well. I am not feeling very good today so I am headed to the DR. this afternoon :(

Today is my Design team day for The Cutting Cafe. This week we had a real range of files to choose from...all the way from rainbows to snow! Now, even though I am so ready for Spring to arrive with all the rainbows and spring showers...I just received this super super super cute little snowman digi from The Doodle Garden called Rolly Polly Snow Baby and I just couldn't wait to use it on something so I knew I HAD to choose to use the Snow Word Shaped Card Template :)

Now, I don't have a cutting machine but Regina's files are still very usable by hand cutting which is what I did for this card. I used scissors around the outside and then a craft knife to cut the inside pieces. It really didn't take too long, so don't be afraid to try these types of files even if you don't have a cutting machine. Her files are very user friendly!

The little hat and mittens are part of the Snow Word file. I paper pieced them using papers from the Echo Park Winter Wishes Collection and then added liquid applique for the trim. My sentiment is from the Some Odd Girl Winter Friends stamp set. 

I thought I would give you a little peek at what I have been working on...

These are my piles of new WHIFF OF JOY stamps that I have been working on adding to our store...yep...not done yet but getting closer :) 

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to stop by The Cutting Cafe Inspiration Blog to check out what my fellow design team members created! Also while you are there...leave some love for the team and be entered in a chance to win some free files of your choice! Awesome deal!! 

Now I am off to lay down for a bit before my DR Appt....

Have a great day all!
