Happy Saturday!! Aren't the weekends great? Well, I'm ready to share the next design in our new Christmas line....Buddy the Monkey with a Snowflake!!! I used a tag rim for the base of this ornament and double stick taped a snowflake punched from a Marvy (blue) snowflake punch. (Of course, I HAD to add the glitter and bling!!!!). Next, I used a pop dot to mount "Snowflake Buddy" in the center of the snowflake. I added more glitter and bling and tied a silver cord (decorated with beads) to the metal rim. Simple!! So, the giveaway for today is the "Snowflake Buddy" stamp along with a set of 3 ornaments pictured below:
Just leave me a comment by midnight on Sunday, October 5 (Hawaii time) telling me about the first time you saw snow (I know this might not be a big deal for people who get snow every winter, but for us here in Hawaii...it's a big deal!!!). I'll pick one winner at random and announce their name on Monday, October 6. The first time I saw snow was when I was 17 years old in Chicago. We went for a conference, and one night when we went down to the lobby of the hotel (at around 10:00 at night) and the snow was lightly falling...all the Hawaii kids ran out on the street to play (the other kids just stared at us from the warm hotel lobby). There really wasn't much snow falling, so we scooped snow off of some parked cars to throw at each other in an impromptu snowball fight!!
Good luck to all!!!
Note: Thanks to the anonymous comment regarding the pattern for "A Sweet Surprise" (4/29/08). Please try downloading it again...it should be working now!!! Thanks for letting me know!!!
