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
