Happy October!

Hello friends & followers!  I hope you all had a Happy World Card Making Day!  Regretfully, I spent the day admiring the creations of others rather than making any cards of my own (have to do that differently next year, LOL).  Today I have a card for you based on Skipping Stones Design Sketch 95:
I used SSD's "Sassy Snow' set and some papers from DCWV's Winter mat stack and changed the big circle in the center of the card to snowflakes (FYI: Marvy Uchida's snowflake punches do NOT like DCWV's pre-glittered cardstock, maybe it is too thick or something, maybe I am just weak, LOL, but it got stuck in my punch three times before I switched to something thinner) and the star on the side into a snowman. The way his arms are outstretched I thought he would look cute tossing some snowballs around so I added an arc of pom poms attached by glue dots and I added some 'candy stripe' red & white twine and some yummy ribbon  I found at Offray's ribbon outlet.  (Holiday Card Count - 41).  This card also fulfills the September 27th Recipe Challenge over at Paper and Such Online - I selected ribbon, twine and designer paper as my three ingredients.


I am afraid that is all I have for you this evening.  But please keep checking back - I will have lots and lots for you to see as I complete all of the "Hope You Can Cling To' challenges over at SCS.  I hope your October is off to a wonderful start!
