Brrr....


 the weekend is almost here :-) my friend Carole created for this week the sketch for the Friday Sketcher blog and i used on the indicated embellishments snowflakes. I just moved them from the bottom to the top of the card. At the ground is lots of liquid applique and in the gaps i have squeezed lots of stickles, as well as around the circle, flakes and in the circular hardware embellishment. Once everything was finished i have used Shimmerz Spritz to give my card with Dexter sledding that "cold" look.

Papers: all by Stampin up
Embellishments: Stampin up ribbons, Shimmerz Spritz,
Liquid Applique, Stickles, Robins Nest
Tools: Martha Stewart Collectible 2009 snowflake punch
Copics: i can not recall the numbers
our sponsor for this week on the Friday Sketcher blog is Simon Says Stamp
