Snowy Hug-Mini style!

Hi stampers! I have another Christmas card made! My pile is growing yet I still don't have even one mailed! I admire people who get their Christmas cards out early! I long to be one of them! Oh well, I am enjoying the process tremendously when I have images like this to work with! I had my Snowy Hug (mini) colored and the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast this morning fit the bill to help me finish it! I love Red and Aqua as Christmas colors and decided the dark color (black) would really set off the image and the Basic Grey (Curio) paper! I also used my Magnolia lace doo hickey die and a page from an old dictionary for the border beneath the ribbon. Can you see it? Hope so! (Sorry, it doesn't seem to be available right now). This card is only 4.25" square! Love that!
Another thing I love is that I was able to keep two of the outside edges of the dp and make the other two (cut) edges match by using some walnut stain distress ink AND my black copic marker! Of course, the snowflakes were made Anna Wight style with Martha Stewart punches and glitter glass. My image is pretty sparkly with Diamond Stickles, but it didn't photograph too well.
My reds are R22, 24 and 29 and my blues are BG10 and BG72. for the tan snow I used E42 and then the 0 blender to keep it light.
Now I want to give you a link to win a GREAT PRIZE from Diana at Magnolia-licious! She has teamed with the glorious Jacque to promote Maggies by giving them away! 25.00 worth EVERY Sunday. All you have to do is leave a link on Jacque's blog! Eeeeeasy!!
Here's the link to #3071 SNOWY HUG
but while you're there please consider checking out all the other new minis! The Mini World collection is growing! LOL!
Okay, enough for today! I'm off to get my card entered in the FS gallery on Splitcoast and then on with this busy Sunday.
Hope you are enjoying this joyous season in some way today!
Cheryl
