Shopping our Stash 31 - Soft as a Snowflake!

I can't be the only one left still making Christmas cards, right?

{crickets chirping}

I know, I know. And I only just sent cards in the mail yesterday. It's like the shoemaker's children going barefoot...no one who knows me ever gets a card on time. 

It's only my second time playing with Shopping our Stash but I really adore the whole idea of their challenges, and love that there's usually a broad way to interpret the challenge. This week's challenge is Soft as a Snowflake, and you're invited to feature something soft (in my case, felt & fun flock on the penguins' bellies and scarves), snowflakes (also here), or the challenge sponsor's images - this week it's A Day for Daisies.

Supplies: Penguin stamp & fun flock from Stampendous;
felt snowflakes from Hero Arts;
striped paper from Bo Bunny; purple cardstock from MFT (from JJ!)
snowflake Cuttlebug folder;
brad from Basic Grey; Mod Podge Dimensional Magic; Martha Stewart fine crystal glitter 
In case you're a regular visitor to the Sackville Farmer's Market, the market will be open this Saturday, Christmas Eve, and several vendors plan to come on New Year's Eve as well. The Bridge Street Cafe is open both days through early afternoon, so come on out & visit!

Super cute card Jessi, the soft snowflake is the perfect embellishment :)
Loved your button cards too on the last post, oh and I like your mild obsession with snowmen ;)
Glad things started to get sorted with Connor...it's amazing what can change when steam starts to come out of your ears...you go girl :)
