Sparkly Skater

Hello - long time, no see!  It is time for our first Monthly Maniac Challenge, and a wonderful thing too since I have obviously been neglecting my blog.  The Monthly Maniacs are a group of gals who formerly designed for Paper Maniac.  We decided a fun way to keep in touch, was to participate in a monthly challenge.   

Every month someone new will provide a challenge to the rest of the group. 
This month’s challenge is SNOW. This is just kind of ironic because living in Minnesota, one would think there had been plenty of it. But other than a faint dusting now and again, we have had NONE of the white stuff!

 My card is based on last week's SCS challenge. I used an older Whipper Snapper stamp that I have in my stash. I have set a goal this year to "Use it or Lose It!" and I always thought this stamp was cute. I made the card in 5" x 7" since the image was so big and I wanted to have room for the designer paper. It is colored with Copics and glittered with Stickles. The pom pom, as well as the patterned paper, is from My Little Bicycle's Winter Twig collection. The card stock is from Memory Box. The snow flakes at the bottom are from various punches and odds and ends in my stash. Finally, the ribbon is from May Arts.

Please pardon the scan. I have my camera still packed in a suitcase from a recent trip and it seems I can't quite find it. I guess what I know what I will be doing the rest of the day - laundry!

Below you will find links to everyone’s blogs.  We hope you like what you see and come back again on the 20th next month to see what we have been up to! Thanks for popping in -
