Winter wishes 19

Hi there! Today I'm honored and thrilled to be a guest featured on the Stamps and Stencils challenge blog. The DT has beautiful projects to share ~ please be sure to visit the Stamps and Stencils challenge blog. The current challenge is all about Pastels. Here's my take on the challenge:
To create my card, I inked the background then randomly stenciled snowflakes.  Next, I randomly heat stamped and heat embossed snowflakes. I embellished the card with a pair of die cut ice skates which I painted and stitched up. I topped it off with die cut sprigs and a fancy bow.
I'm joining along with the following challenges: For sketch inspiration, Fab Friday challenge as well as the Simon Says Stamp: Monday challenge where the theme is It's a Stitch Up: (the laces are all stitched up) and
Merry Monday challenge where the theme is Outdoor Activities:
Thank so much for stopping by!

Hi! Today I'm joining along with the PTI November Create Along With Us challenge where we are to choose a design team members team who's card has inspired us. 
Here's my interpretation of the challenge:
To create my card, I inked and stenciled the background using a stencil which I created using a Silver White Winters snowflake die then embellished with a glitter covered Damask Snowflake:
I was inspired by Betsy's pretty card shown below:

Hi there! Tonight we are attending a house warming party for friends of ours who recently built a home. My sweet friend Linda enjoys fruit flavored tea so I bought her a gift card for Teavana where she is able to choose the flavor of tea that she would like :)
 For the focal point, I die cut and layered a little home from the PTI Love Lives Here set and added a tiny tag from the PTI Tiny Tags set:
 I also have a painting of peonies and roses on a 12" x 12" canvas to share:

Hi there! Today I'm joining along with the PTI Make It Monday challenge where the challenge is to create a Holiday Photo Card. I made a holiday photo card featuring a photo of sweet Connor that was taken years ago that I had on hand :)
To create this card, I applied ink to an embossing folder then ran it through the die cutting machine. I framed Connor with a die cut kraft photo frame then embellished with a little blossom from Brilliant Baubles stamp set combined with a heat embossed sentiment from the Signature Christmas stamp set:
