Let it Snow..

Yesterday was a busy day for me. I scored some great new items at Joann's and AC Moore. Cannot wait to try out my new toys. As Iwas putting away my new finds I realized my craft space was just a mess. I stayed up till 2 AM sorting through all my things and getting organized. OH MY! I didn't realize how much stuff I have. I came across tons of things i'm glad I refound! I feel so accomplished! Now I just need to find a way to organize all my spellbinder dies that are still in the packages. I've seen some good storage ideas for those online, I'm going to give the binder idea a try. Please share with me how you organize yours. Todays project is all about staying warm. We have been pretty fortunate so far and having a pretty mild winter, but we have gotten our share of snow! I got this cute digi from The Greeting Farm, Cozy Ian. My idea for this card was to make him look like he was indoors looking out the window at a blustery day. The branch, window, icicles and snowflake are diecuts using my silhoutte cameo. I also sketched out the sentiment "Let it Snow" on my silhoutte using a gel pen and stamped around it with a stampin up stamp. I then punched it out using the decorative label punch from stampin up. I embossed the background with my cuttlebug and Kassies brocade embossing folder. I sprinkled glitter on the icicles and the snowflake. I hope you enjoy this card. Thanks for looking, comments are always appreciated. Have a great day and if your in a snowy part of the world, stay warm, and let it snow!
