Merry Monday Snowflake

It's Merry Monday time again.

I love making Christmas cards all year long.

It's a lot more fun to have them all done
when it's time to mail them out.

Here's this week's card....




The super talented Kathy is our hostess this week and this is what she chose.


I pulled out a NBUS embossing folder.  The swirls in it look like the icing.

The snowflakes are die cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.
Love that sparkle!

is going on until January 22nd
you just have to use some schtuff you've never used before
like this embossing folder.

has a new sketch challenge

Pixies Crafty Workshop
cuz I used some snippets for the sentiment


and a new to me challenge
my snowflakes are die cut.


I hope you'll join us this week at
and get a head start on this year's Christmas cards.

Thanks for stopping by.

Enjoy!

I think that glittery snowflake with the pearl in the centre is gorgeous Bonnie, and the Darice folder works with it perfectly, and such a pretty blue. Thank you for your lovely comments and for becoming a follower, I really appreciate it. x

Love this, such a pretty colour to use and the embossing folder is beautiful.

I admire you doing Xmas cards so early, I put it off until I get into blind panic at the end of November LOL. Although it cost me £42 at Christmas in postage alone, and that was for simple cards, I think I may have to cut down next year.

Liz said...

A gorgeous card, Bonnie. What a lovely embossing folder and your design is really lovely. xx
