Last week as I posted my card I asked you to cross your fingers that we would get lots of snow in the upcoming storm. This week's card is my thank you for your help in the 14 inches that we got :)
I started my card by making a mask of our Medium Filigree Snowflake stamp. Once that was done I stamped the snowflake on my card in the center using turquoise ink. After masking it I stamped the snowflake on both sides (giving it a 1/4 turn) using lavender ink, and then once again using turquoise ink.
The Warm Thoughts greeting was stamped using turquoise ink and then trimmed to size. For my fancy edges I used a corner punch - slightly differently than normal. Instead of putting the paper in to punch each corner I put it in straight as you can see here...
Just make sure it's as centered as possible. I did the same thing to the purple layer and adhered it all together on a folded purple card and then added a bit of bling to the center of the flakes and the sides of the greeting.
Thanks so much for stopping by and for all those crossed fingers!!

I am moving in my crafting to St. Pats, Spring and Easter now - wishing for short sleeves, budding flowers, and trips to the beach. I am also super addicted to Bible Art Journaling and I have a new page to show you.
To start out this page, I stamped the Script Font Background stamp in a SU! Crumb Cake ink. Next I stamped the Lighthouse, He is Risen, and Sailboat images in the same ink. I find it is easier for me to stamp everything in a light color so it doesn't bleed through, then I can skip the normal page prep. I outline my images in a Micron Pen. I colored up everything with watercolor pencils which I finger blended, and then I put in a few white highlights with a gel pen. I was lucky that I had a blank page in my Journaling Bible at the end of Galatians so I could do this page up really big.
These verses are so magical (Galatians 3:26-29) - they tell of how once we become a Christian, the lines that formally separated us are gone. No more man versus woman, no more fat versus thin, no more judging by skin color or physical beauty or money. God judges us by our hearts and our love for Him and not by all that other meaningless and petty stuff. Freeing isn't it?

I thought I'd share one last Valentine card with you since tomorrow is the big day! I created this card for my hubby, which is good since it's too thick and sized wrong for the mail. I joined Spellbinders Die of the month club a while back and got the idea for this from a recent die set.
I started by creating the cupid arrow. I used a small bamboo skewer and glued two red hearts on one end. The other end was wrapped with gold twine before attaching the bow and red and gold leaves. I used Glossy Accents for the adhesive to make sure everything stays attached. The greeting was stamped with Versafine Black Onyx ink before attaching the arrow.
Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day!!
