Winter Jelly Bean

Happy Monday!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Ours flew by as always and boy was it chilly! We are getting ready for the Thanksgiving holiday here, but we have 2 more days of school and work to get through before a nice mini vacation and some family time.

This will be a quick post today as I need to get moving on some work so I can enjoy some time off later this week. I created this card using the Whimsy Stamps rubber stamps Jelly Bean from the Crissy Armstrong Collection.

I started with some Whimsy Holiday Folly paper and then added a scalloped circle bordered with pretty delicate snowflakes. I got this idea from the super talented Dena and her gorgeous Magnolia card HERE. My image was colored with Copics and then sat in a bed of twinklets snow. I've embellished with pearls and glitter and a snowflake with a sticky gem center.

This card fits the challenges at:
2 Sisters - snowflakes
Catch The Bug - Christmas crafts
Our Daily Bread Designs - holiday cards
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - no flowers
Stampin For The Weekend - winter
Totally Papercrafts - snow and snowflakes
Paper Play  - let it snow

Before I head back to work, I wanted to also let you all know that this week is our Stamp-a-Day-Giveaway at Whimsy Stamps! Each day, Monday through Friday, this week we will post a new chance to win a rubber stamp over on our Whimsy Blog and a chance to win a digital stamp over on our Facebook page. Anyone can enter and you can enter each and every day. Winners of the rubber stamps will be announced on the Whimsy blog on Saturday the 27th!
