A big welcome to you, My Dear Blogging Friends, and to my newest followers - Edwina, Lynda, Lisa, Nancy, K Williams.
Alright! Alright! Alright! I confess! I cheated!
But Frosty under the poinsettia was WAY TOO CUTE just to throw in the recycle bin from someone's store bought card last year.
a little known fact about Frosty the Snowman is that...
he loves poinsettias
Frosty is always happiest being surrounded by the rosy flowers...
macho peer pressure caused him to forsake the poinsettias whenever crowds are around.
Only his closest friends know the truth.
The very sweet image, snowflakes, heart and the poinsettia were all "distressed" by using a VersaMark pad and VersaMarker and using Sparkle N Sprinkle Silver Lightning embossing powder. All the photos that really brought out the power of the bling, "dulled" the image - not sure why other than maybe the coating on the image?
