bbtb2 snowflakes

happy monday ! sure hope your holidays were fun festive and safe :)
so did ya miss us over at the bug2? although we all enjoyed our time off were also glad to be back in our craft caves creating away for you :)
to start off the year our theme is snowflakes..i love snow,huge beautiful flakes and snowmen :)
i made an ornament, but didnt have a chance to use it so its tucked away snuggly for next year :)
 be sure to check out the gorgeous flakes from the rest of the fabulous design team over at BBTB2

im entering this over at dl.art for dianas fun linky party.


for this i used "when its cold outside" cartridge. i took a coaster and covered it with a paper doily then the flake cut. i added some rhinestones for pretty sparkle.
for the cute lil snowman i used some sparkly styrofoam balls i found at hobby lobby. i used a sharpie for his eyes and mouth, a piece of raffia (rolled in glue so it would harden and stay straight) and some cord that i unraveled a bit for his scarf and broke pieces off a craft pick for his arms.
thats it easy peasy :)
when i hot glued him on i didnt have the coaster set just right so my snowman is kind of looking up but thats ok ill put him on the tree near a light so he can be looking up at that ;) ill just say that was the intent when i made it ;)

thanks a million for stopping by today hope you enjoyed my project. your comments always make me smile thank you for that :) go get crafty now :) and have a great day :)xxxshelly
