Best of Snow Joy Shaker

I hope you had a thoroughly enjoyable Thanksgiving.  We had a few friends over for dinner and best of all our son was here too! Nothing like having a table full  of friends and family.  

I had a few Frosty shakers leftover from this project and like Thanksgiving leftovers they need to be used up.

If you are thinking that the snowman looks familiar you are right! It is a mini Frosty!  If you have been a long time customer of Stampin' Up!  you probably will remember the stamp set Frosty.   He was definitely a favorite.  Well, he has returned in a smaller version in the Best of 25 Years stamp series.   You know who also made a comeback in the Best of Snow set?  The hedgehogs!  Seriously, this is one adorable set.

Million and One & Best of Flowers

There are 2 sentiments in the Million and One stamp set and they are both gorgeous.  I chose to use the "fabulous sentiment" as I have some fabulous people I need to send cards too.

I hope you can see the glittery black centers of the flowers.    The Black glitter is from the Black and Orange Stampin' Glitter (132206)  on page 20 of the Holiday catalog.

You can just barely see it but I decorated the inside of the card with a strip of the Modern Medley DSP and a  red flower.   Sorry the color is so off in this picture, it really is Very Vanilla.
