Card Patterns sketch #40 SUPER 6 WINNER

Greetings from beautiful,sunny Arizona!! Seems like I have been gone for a long time!! My job has been keeping me extra busy & that means very little time in the craft room for me! :( I completely missed blog hopping around to look at all your beautiful creations this past week. I am hoping this week will be a little less busy for me & I can actually sneak in a bit of fun!! Today I chose to create another Christmas card. This one using sketch #40 from the gals over at Card Patterns.
Here is this weeks sketch:


Here is my snowy little card:


This one is a 5x5 finished size. all of the papers are PTI as well as the little snowman and the ribbon. The white fringe is from one of our local SB stores. I also used 2 different MS show flake punches & some silver show flake bling from Michael's. I used a couple of different sizes of nesties along with a 2 and a 1/4 inch scalloped punch & a 1 and 3/4 inch circle punch. Basicly that's it for this one. pretty easy! hope you are all enjoying what is left to the weekend!! see you in blog land!!

Hey Gwen!
Thanks for that sweet comment you left me! The measurements are 5 1/2 inches by 1 1/2 inches. It isn't exact, but it's good enough unless you want me going to the 1/16's!
Now my turn to leave a comment!
I LOVE your last two cards! That snowman is really cute! On your card for TE; wow! I don't even know where to begin! How about the ribbon? I love it! I am absolutely a loss when it comes to such ribbons...I can only do little knots. ;)
Anyways, thanks for brightening up my day, and hopefully I'll help brighten yours a little. :)
