You Melt My Heart

Hello everyone, sorry I went MIA again this week.  Work has kept me busy and my stamping room was a disaster leaving me with no creativity.  It felt good to get in here yesterday and make this card.  This is my design team card for Pile It On this week.  I love Melanie Muenchinger's Hip To Be Square  and Carolyn King's Warm Winter Wishes stamp sets from Gina K Designs and I couldn't wait to use them together to make this card.  I had this idea as soon as the sets were released. Here is the cool part, to make the snow for the shaker I used a technique I found on Holly's blog on making your own flower soft.  She even made a cool video you can check it out here.  I hope you have a wonderful day, I am planning on spending it stamping.  Thank you for stopping by.
