*More Bling and More Snowflakes*

I sure hope you're not getting sick of snowflakes and winter cards yet, cuz I think I still have a few more in me to make!

This card is one I love. I started out playing with the Fiskars snowflake border punch. I took a Whisper White card and punched along the bottom and then added a piece of the Holiday Time paper behind it. I used a scalloped oval punch out that Cindy sent me... I have the circle and the square giga scallop punches but not the oval (guess I gotta order it now too!). I inked the edges of the oval with a stamping sponge and Bashful Blue ink. I then used the 2-Way glue pen around the edges and added some glitter. I stamped the snowflake in the centre (almost LOL) with Bashful Blue ink and added a clear gem for sparkle. I put the card together and still it needed something... so I added the clear gems to the centres of alternating snowflakes in the border. I love the simplicity of this card. Those that know me well would probably tell you that this is a "Nancy" card...

I've had a few milestones in blogging in the last couple of days.... I've had a record number of page views on Tuesday and Wednesday (239 and 238 respectively) , I had a record number of comments on a post yesterday (7), and I'm now over the 3000 visits mark! How exciting!

Keep those page visits and comments coming! And please feel free to share my blog with others you think might be interested!

And thank you for coming to visit.... knowing that there are people who are popping in to check on my blog inspires me to get creative more often. I haven't stamped this much in a few years! It feels great to get back at it again!

If you have some time, grab a cup of your favourite tea/coffee/hot chocolate and take a browse through the blogs listed on the left... some wonderful ideas to be seen!

You're right, this *IS* a Nancy card! I can't believe you've had that snowflak punch all this time and haven't used it! It's gorgeous, especially with all the little diamonds on it.

Keep up the stamping & the blogging!
