Once there was a snowman....


Cuttlebug challenge week #3....sketch challenge. I am covered in glitter. I glisten just like new fallen snow with the sun shining on it. My hair, cheeks, fingers, table, floor, you name it is covered in prisma glitter! LOL! Love this stuff. So how did I end up with it everywhere, you may ask? Well, stubborn me decided not to turn on the air conditioning today. See, this morning it was only in the 60's, so we opened up the windows and let the breeze in. Unfortunately, we get all afternoon sun in the living room and dining room (which is where I work...see where I am going with this?) So, at 5pm, it really isn't cost efficient to turn on the a/c to run constantly for the next 4 hours until we go to bed and open windows again (we have had some of the most amazing springlike weather this week!). Brought the big oscillating fan into the DR and turned on low. As I was sprinkling this, it flew. As I blew off extra, it flew. We are talking EVERYTHING is covered in this stuff! Tomorrow- dusting and vacuuming. sigh........

Papers used: CTMH bamboo c/s, twilight c/s. Snowman friends stamp set to create a melted snowman. Typed the saying on the computer (it is on the papers in the set from Carolee's Creations- snowman winter collection). ribbon, crystals and WR memory keepers embossed snowflake (which I covered in more glitter).

thanks for stopping by!
