Black Christmas Trees and Angel Snow Ladies

I am having so much fun creating cards around the themes of the season.
 This first one uses the retro sketch for this week and some really neat WOW stamps I recently won.
 I was a winner of this great stamp set by WOW from Gina Lideros blog.  I wanted my image to be on the simple side so I just stamped it with black ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Next came maybe my new most favorite supply, some Heidi Swapp Gold spray. Can you tell how amazing that gold is? I even sprayed it on that little strip of black cardstock.
 I wanted to show off a Kreaxions 4-in-1 punch so I used it on the corners of my square piece of cardstock that I had already embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. This was also rubbed with some brown and some green stamp pad ink.
 Here is the retro sketch.
 Now for my adorable little Snow Lady, a Printworks stamp.  I just love how girly she is.  She also fits the Simon Says Stamp blog, Snowflakes challenge and the CASology SPARKLE challenge.
 Another new purchase that I am loving is some Rock Candy Ranger Sticklers. LOVING the glittery look. The hat was coated with Glossy Accents.
 This snowflake is cut with the Cricut and another example of the Rock Candy Sticklers. I thought the little heart she is holding looked something like a Bauble to go along with the Addicted to CAS challenge.
 This is the Addicted to CAS challenge.
CASology Sparkle challenge.
And for a couple cute photos...
 We picked up this adorable Santa advent calendar at Ikea and my youngest grandson has had so much fun opening a box each day. He was getting mad that Christmas wasn't here since we said it was Christmas time, so this helps him, I hope!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
