Snowflakes a Fallin'

Today at Scrap-Creations our theme is 
Although it has not been my first snowfall here in Canada,it has been a slow one.Usually we have a fair bit of snow at this time of year.But I fear not,because it looks like January is supposed to be our big month of snow ! Uggh out comes the backhoe!!
So onto my card...I was inspired by Tosh's card made last year.So I cased it..well hers is MUCH better.That girl has a style that ONLY she can do!!LOL But I thank her for inspiring me.
I embossed the background with a Cuttlebug folder.The blue round paper is from Tim Holtz,which I embossed with his snowflake stamp in white.I added a acetate snowflake and some bling.Wouldn't be complete without,lol.
Close up... 

Well that's my simple card..Hope you join us!

Oh Santa Baby I've been Naughty....

Ok I`m sliding this one in just in time I hope.Over at Kenny K Challenges is to use Texture.I use Mrs.Claus for this card.Now this sucker took me foreeever to make.Nothing seemed to go right for me.But here she is.My texture is the liquid applique and glitter if that counts ?
Some close ups..I made a side step card.This one is a 6x6 card.Love the white tress I gotta say.The more I kept looking at this I kept going "D'oh I should have put this on or add this" Oh well the pics taken so no Changesy!!
It's really hard to see the snowflake covered in glitter,but it's prettier in RL.

And this sentiment can be found at Graphicat Designs..Isn't it perfect for this!!!!
