Snowflakes and Snowmen

Yes, it is fall but our thoughts are going to snowflakes, snowmen and all that winter brings.
 First off, I took a very simple Kreaxions 4-in-1 #312 punch to create my card that features snowflakes.  
 I punched borders from three different colors of cardstock and then layered those punched borders.  The punch punches the larger snowflake and the tiny snowflake with each punch.
 I had a little pile of leftover snowflakes so I glued them to the top of my card for added decoration.
 For my next card, I wanted to use this CAS(E) this sketch.  My card also fits the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge to stamp with supplies other then ink.
 I was able to get to a stamp convention this past weekend. Three times a year there is a stamp convention in Carson, CA and I try to get to as many as I can. I was so happy to see Printworks there with their adorable stamps and of course, I had to get a few. 
Fitting the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge, I stamped the larger snowflake on the card front first using Picket Fence Distress Stain. Next my little guy was simply colored with Copic markers. 
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
