yep.....i read it right this week! the challenge that is...over at Something Completely Differentt. after last week ~ i thought i had better double take it before i got started. foolish me. guess i should wear my glasses more often. anyhoo ~ the challenge this week is *blue and white and snowflakes*. for my card ~ i used a *cross* stamp for the snowflakes. sssshhh...don't tell! i stamped 6 of them. cut 3 of them in full size. then for the top layer of the snowflake ~ i cut just a cross part out and placed on top ~ added some white stickles ~ and whalaa ~ my interpretation of a snowflake! i also added white rubon snowflakes on the background cs ~ hole punched the border and used a white gel pen for the stitching.
