Beautiful snowflakes! I think I like the sweet snowflake the best but it's really difficult to pick a fave!
Beth, if you'll contact me with your email address, I'll send you a catalog so you can pick your five ornaments!

Several of you mentioned that you didn't see your favorites listed in my etsy shop anymore, but never fear -- all designs are available because I am always making more.  If you'd like to see a catalog, just contact me via email or via my etsy shop and I'll send you a pdf catalog (just make sure you leave your email address).

Thanks for playing along, everyone!  Happy Thanksgiving and a very Merry Christmas!

Deck the Halls -- 2S4Y

I've been trying to think of a way to incorporate one of the snowflake ornaments I sell in my etsy shop into a card, and Laura's sketch this week at 2 Sketches 4 You was PERFECT! I think this will be a really nice way to give one of my friends an ornament -- the ribbon at the top just loops through two holes I punched in the card, so it can easily be detached and hung on the tree.

I used my Cuttlebug for the embossing and then lightly sanded it (love the DCWV cardstock for that!), and the border punch and rub-on are both from SU. TFL!

Give Thanks Unto the Lord! (BBTB Contest)

I know I'm just sliding under the wire, but I couldn't resist entering the BBTB contest when I saw the theme was giving thanks. I have taken a challenge this month to blog every day about something I'm thankful for (you can see my entries on our family blog), and I am really feeling so grateful for all the big and little blessings in my life! I thought immediately of our new family pictures and that this scripture said perfectly how blessed I feel to have my wonderful family: "O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy endureth forever." (Psalms 136:1)

I used the Storybook Cricut cartridge for all the die-cuts. The felt pieces are from Fancy Pants, and the buttons are from Sassafrass Lass (review on these beauties coming soon!). I also used a Bazzill "In Stitch'z" template for the hand-stitched flourishes. The paper is from Scrapworks. I hope you'll excuse the bad pictures of the layout -- there was not a lot of natural light at 10:30 pm. :) TFL!
