INSPIRED BY ALL THE LITTLE THINGS - GUEST DESIGNER

Hello and happy Sunday!

I'm so excited to be the Guest Designer for this weeks  INSPIRED BY ALL THE LITTLE THINGS challenge.....


Here is this weeks inspiration photo #35.....

Here is my take on it....



How cute are these.... I LOVE SNOWMEN.....and I love cookies too...LOL!!! There is something about them that make me smile :) !!! For this card I used the adorable PTI - Shape Up Mini Set, along with the matching dies. The sentiment is from the PTI - Christmas Mini Set. My card was also embossed with the SU Softly Falling Embossing Folder and the star is from an older SU punch.

Hope you have a chance to play along?!? Please stop by the INSPIRED BY ALL THE LITTLE THINGS BLOG to see the Design Teams take on the inspiration photo and on what's required to play along!!!

Wishing you and your family a fabulous Christmas Season!!!

                                                                     Hugs, ~Silke~
