It's Holiday Time!!

Hello Monday! Are you ready for our newest challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge? This week it is CHRISTMAS/WINTER HOLIDAY. 

I feel like a squirrel lately, dashing around madly looking for and storing the nuts for the winter! Working on getting my Christmas cards made, and this year I decided to do several different ones - more fun for me.

I love the joy this snowman shows, and then I thought, what if the snowman believed hard enough that the giant snowflake showed up? (kind of like Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin, but with a winter twist)

Not many photos this time...lots of cranking out the dies on the Big Shot, stamping and stenciling.

I wanted to just stencil the Believe, and knowing myself, I would never just keep it to that if I didn't block off the nearby design. Tape worked great to cover it up.

Just like most snowflakes are unique, I tried to make each one just a bit different by punching out different areas of the snowflake. This really makes the  SSS Felicity Snowflake die so versatile!

Love this message from Darkroom Door in the shape of a tree!

Don't forget to stamp something fun on the envelope too!

If you believe with all your heart, all your snowman dreams will come true!

Have a wonderful holiday season!! I hope you find some time to share your Christmas and Winter Holiday creations with us!
