Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check back here tomorrow for more new release creations!  Now onto my little bright orange buddy!  I made this project out of the brightest orange and red Design papers I could find! ( of courst dark red and oranges are always my favorites).  The snowman is such a light colorless image it needed to be a full contrast.  These felt trees were perfect for the post it note holder.  I've finally made my first one, been waiting to do it forever!  The Sentiment matched perfectly, the little bulbs on the trees were a combination of dew drops and plastic snow flakes that I also created the pin with pearls added.  If you look really close, you can see the postage seal in the red DP too!  These were perfect little accents I found in my Stamp set Holiday mini postage stamps from Raindrop Echo Designs w/Whimsy.

    P.S. Visit my blog to see some candy – I have some Digital Scrapbooking softwear up for grabs, all you have to do is comment on my post.

  35. I don't think there's going to be enough room in this box to tell you what I love about this card. How about instead, I tell you what I don't like about it? Ok, here goes......
    SEE...that was much easier! :D It's FANTASTIC!!!
    So glad that these messages aren't via video responses, because I'd be rather embarrassed you seeing me jump up and down with excitement. ;)
    I love your attention to the tiniest details. You are such an inspiration.

    Thank you for playing along with us at Make It Monday!
