Gold Snowflake Hanglar


Once again it’s been too long in between posts but I’ve finally colored a few images & this little Hanglar was just too cute to leave sitting … Guess it’s time to turn them into cards instead of just adorning my tables with them. I think I’ve forgotten how to use my Copics & post something but will do my best …


After seeing some wonderful cards that Tammi made using these large snowflakes I finally found some & used a gold one topped off with some glittery ribbon, a pair of bells & a little gold thread. Maybe a bit too much gold but hey, “It’s almost Christmas” so thought I would bling it up a little.


Here’s a close up of this little girl holding a piece of the snowflake she “accidently broke off.


The inside is decorated with papers from the same pack as the front.

Supplies used :

Designer papers ": My Minds Eye  & Stampin Up Vanilla & Cherry Cobbler

Memory Box “Frostyville Border”

Cheery Lynn Doily for the sentiment.

Bells & ribbon from Jo Ann’s

Colored with Copics

Glenda, one sweet lady that I follow, who by the way makes the most wonderful paper flowers has a great philosophy … She says take a moment for yourself & “Breathe” …

We all get caught up in our busy lives with things we think we HAVE to do … But sometimes taking a few moments just for YOU to “Breathe” makes life seem a little less hectic & a lot more enjoyable … Maybe we should all try that especially this time of year.  I am the WORST at putting things off & saying I’ll do it later but right now I just took a deep breath & it felt really good …

Thanks for stopping by & hope you have a crafty kind of day & Ruth Ann I hope you are taking a moment to “breathe”… She’s my wonderful friend who makes beautiful cards, quilts & is always encouraging me to get busy & use some of the many card supplies I keep buying & hoarding ….

And a HUGE thank you to my beautiful daughters who have the busiest lives of anyone I know & can still find time to walk & go to the gym & clean their houses, take care of their children, work full time PLUS find time to make quilts & decorate their houses for the holidays & plan trips for their children & remodel a house & become a Captain in the Air Force & ALWAYS be a shoulder to lean on … Ladies, I hope you take a moment to “Breathe” & know I love you to the Moon & Back”.

Hugs, Janie & Mom

  5. Good advice and some I took today, just relaxed and read a book! :) Janie your card is GORGEOUS!! I really wanted to use that image this year, but didn't get to the card with her and all the gold!! Great idea with the broken part of the snowflake too! ~hugs

  6. Janie this is adorable! I love the gold, I think it is perfect, not too much nor too little and your coloring is wonderful. I hope you and your family have a great Xmas and a happy and healthy New Year!

  7. Hello lovely lady and how nice to see you here! I was beginning to think you'd run away with the local Sheriff Ha!
    Life is busy and sometimes it's hard to fit everything in, BUT it is lovely to see you and your gorgeous card.
    I love the gold and no it's not too much at all (if you can't have glitz and bling at Christmas then when can you??)

    Have a lovely Christmas and a very Happy New Year

    Big hugs

  8. Well, well my friend I must say this card was worth waiting for! It's beautiful and you did a marvelous job putting it together. I must say you haven't lost your touch at all. Love this cute image and the gold snowflake is fabulous along with the gold ribbon. Everything just goes together prefectly. I will try and take the time to "Breathe" then maybe I can get everything done that I need too. Thanks for thinking of me and may your Christmas be one to remember.....miss you. Guess I need to get back to posting cards again.
    hugs and more hugs, Ruth Ann

  26. Beautiful creations Janie!
    Thank you for becoming a follower on my blog!
    Lovely regards

  27. This is beautiful Janie. I really like everything about it. I've been looking around your blog since yesterday, and all your creations are gorgeous!

  28. I Janie, I've taken a little trip through your site and you do very lovely(make that beautiful) work. I thank you for following me as it has led me here and I have joined your site as a follower. Looking forward to seeing more of your wonderful creations!

  29. Hi Janie! your cards are just gorgeous! but I see you haven't been blogging for a while so hope you are ok. You stopped by my blog and left me a lovely comment, thank you, and a question about the pearl paper I used to make the flowers. Well, I got mine at a craft show here in the UK about 3 years ago and it has been sat in a box for almost 2 years whilst family issues and moving house were going on. Not much help to you I'm afraid.
    hugs, annie x

  30. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm going to
    start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
