First Snowball of Winter

Today begins a new week at work for many - and oh so difficult after the Christmas/New Year break! However, I am not one of them... at least I do not have an office or a particular 'job' to go to. One of my jobs is housework like cooking and cleaning - ugh! Another of my jobs is the ministry work in and out of church; and still another is to exercise and then hang out at Starbucks. Well, somebody's got to do it lol!!! Back to the old grindstone hee hee...

This is a card I made about a month ago I think, but I never got around to posting. I've used First Snowball of Winter by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Winter Sampler. Susana has had too much free time, so give her a visit sooooon (JUST KIDDING!!!). Susana always works double time and gives us all the best service : ) But do pop on over and check out the NEW PRODUCTS she has in the store!!! Just wait... your eyes are gonna pop out like mine did!

I've used Viva Decor Glitter Liner to enhance the swirl die cut as well as a bit more bling on her hat and jeans. For snow on the ground, I glued Polar White Flower Soft (15% off!) up and under her shoes so it looks like she's 'in' the snow :)

For a soft furry trim, her jacket got the Sparkly fluff treatment as well as the pom pom on her hat! I think I over did her eyes a bit lol! I wanted them to be nice and shiny, but I made the hole on my Diamond Glaze bottle too big - sigh... she has the prettiest eyes though!

The silver ribbon lace and snowflakes came from Jo-Ann's...

Thanks for stopping by my little part of the world :) Please pray for my hubby this week. He is trying to obtain a license so he can drive truck. Things haven't gone smoothly... Please pray that God's will be done! I appreciate it more than you know!!!

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~
