One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Festive Friday ~ Theme Challenge

The theme this time at Festive Friday Challenge is making something with children in mind....I thought, what child does not love SNOW GLOBES?  What adult does not love snow globes?  So I pulled out PTI's Winter Snow Globe.  I stamped the globe, then die cut the center using a nestability die, then I stamped the the background snowflakes in versamark and white embossed them ( on aqua mist paper).  I die cut the Santa and colored with copics and added some Diamond Stickles to all of his white really glistens in real life!!  I made the background snowflakes with aqua mist ink and the three mini flake stamp.  I adhered a piece of paper from Rustic Snowflakes pattern pack (PTI) that is die cut with the small scallop die.

Oh...I forgot to mention that I taped a piece of clear cardstock on the back side of the globe, then I used dimensionals all around the edges of the circle so that it would pop out a bit!  I didn't have any confetti...maybe I should have waited to post this until I could find some tiny winter confetti..but I didn't...the ho! ho! ho! is an old rubber stamp and the merry christmas is from Tremendous Treats:  Christmas selectively stamped to be the two colors.  Fun times!!
