Snowbella's First Snowfall

It is another rainy day today in the Pacific Northwest. As I do my errands, I am enjoying all the gorgeous fall colors. I think I will take a picture of my favorite (that will be hard) and design a card around it - I will let you know when it is complete.

I was looking through my stamps and found so many that are screaming, "me next!!". I actually have a lot of stamps that have never been 'inked', oh dear. So I am going to challenge myself to use more of my stamps.

Today, I have Snowbunnybella to show off. She is just so cute and I love her big cheesy smiles, you can find her at Addicted to Rubber Stamps, as well as a host of other stamps and supplies.

I am using the Pixie Cottage Challenge (their first one) and it was fun to make. I picked some wintry bold colors and added Liquid Applique to her fuzzy parts of her outfit. It is hard to see, but it is white and puffy - I did learn this time that I need to add more so that the 'fluff' will be thicker. So what can I fluff up next.... oh well, moving on.
To create the larger scalloped border, I took the corner guard off of the punch so I could position it to create a straight line.

Have a great day and let me know what you think....
