How's that go, a day late and a dollar short?


That's me this week!  I am a day late with the challenge sketch at JUGS, but since it was such a great sketch I want to post it anyway.  Besides, I used this wonderful new digi image Snowmen from my friend Kristen at Kards and Klay's, shop Kahwinkedink, and I can't wait to show it off!  I made the letters and small circles with Cricut Plantin Schoolbook, cs Regal Rose, Mellow Moss from Stampin Up, dp K &Company Brenda Walton "Mira", Stampin up fine cosmo glitter - green and confetti snowflakes from JoAnns.  Best of all, I had a chance to use one of my new toys from Spellbinders, that I won in the When Creativity Knocks, Great Crafters Tool Hunt.  I used the Spellbinders Impressabilities Snowflake.  What I really like about this is that I was able to fill my 5 x 7 card front with the embossed image.  It took me some time to figure it out, but I cut the frame off of the Impressibility and ran it through my Wizard twice.  On the second pass I let the portion of the card that was done hang outside of the plates, so it didn't flatten it out.  I cut my frame off very carefully, because I intend to use that to emboss a rectangle frame in the future.
Personal note, the Just Us Girls team has a special challenge for you (in addition to a new one they will have for you on Saturday). This one is to raise money for a family that you may or may not have heard about. One of our fellow stampers in our very charitable stamping community suddenly lost her son last week. Henry Anderson was only three years old, suddenly became ill, and passed away. It is still uncertain what the cause of his death was.  Please stop over to the JUGS site for details on how we can help this family.  Thanks for looking, ~Diane


  1. Love this card, Diane. I copied down the challenge but just didn't get to it.... I've worked all week on the order I was given for the boxes and frames so...

  2. Thank you for playing with my image! Love the card, you made it look awesome, Diane!

  3. Diane this is super cute! It's totally OK to post "late" to JUGS - we just can't consider you for Chic of Week but otherwise we can still enjoy and ogle your creations! :-) THanks for playing along - I love the word Merry along the side...and those snowmen are ADORABLE!!!

  4. Hey Diane, My momma also said "Better late than Never!" as I was the 11th child who arrived 2 weeks late into the world! :) Your sweet snowman card is so cute! I like how you spelled Merry down the side - very creative! Thank you for playing along with JUGS sketch challenge! I hope you join us this week for the Dry embossing challenge :)

  5. Diane, this is such a lovely card. I love how you put Merry for the circles - I'd have thought only to do flowers; so very creative of you! I love the snowmen - the background paper is so cool embossed like that. Great job!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a sweet comment, they really make my day!
