Welcome to Day Two of Michelle's Anniversary Blog Hop

Welcome to day two of the Michelle's First Anniversary Blog Hop. We are helping Michelle celebrate with the theme of Snowmen! You should have arrived here from Heather's blog, Houses Built of Cards. If you just happened to stumble upon this hop, please be sure to go back to Michelle's Blog, Scrapbooking SOS to start at the beginning.

Today I did a 6x6 card keeping in the snowman theme...

Georgia-Pacific Cardstock (white)
Cardstock from the shelf of JoAnn's (white and blue)
Michael Miller Memories Cotton Fabric Paper (green)
SVG File I made (Matte)
Sentiments Stamp - unknown
Inkadinkado Stamp (two pine trees on right)
Stamps by Judith (pine branches on left)
See-D's Stamps (snowman)
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Evergreen Bough
Snowflake Punch - Marvy
Snowflake Brad
Stickles - Gold, Crystal
Glossy Accents
Copic Markers - Y02, YR09, B0000, B000, C1, C3, E17, G05, R29, 100

Unfortunately you can not tell that the snowflakes have Stickles that shine so bright (they almost look off white in the picture) nor can you tell the words (matte) have Glossy Accents on them which look like they were in an ice storm. The green background fabric paper also glistens with gold sparkles which the snowman's band around his hat matches. I'm really sorry you can't see how this card shines.

Now on to the blog candy....I hope you enjoyed my card and like my SVG File. I am sure you can think of other ways of using it than I did. How about using it on a page for a picture Matte? Journal Matte? Whatever you think of for a use, try it out. Look on the left sidebar for my free files and download  the "Winter SVG" file.

I am sure you all don't have SCAL or MTC so how about some real blog candy? 

Fiskars Perfect Blend Stamp Set.
