Gingersnaps Meet Peppermint Stick

Yesterday I received a package from All That Scraps. I LOVE getting those packages! When I opened it up, 2 new sets of stamps were waiting for me. This adorable image is from the new set called Snow Bunnies. It is part of a new line called Gingersnaps. I absolutely adore this sweet face. Her round head reminds me of Charlie Brown! I used some Basic Grey paper that I just love. I love the fun colors and the stripes as well. This is called Peppermint Stick. It is my last piece of paper so I will admit I have been hoarding it! The ribbon is Riding Hood Red Taffeta. I haven't bought any Riding Hood Red supplies other than this ribbon. To me, the color is so close to Ruby Red that I don't need yet another red. This ribbon though, is one that I use all the time, so I'll be stocking up on it before the In Colors retire this summer!
The snowflake is a brad that I have had laying around forever . I just flattened the back out and ran some silver cord through and hung it, rather than attach it to my card. I put some glue on it and dipped it into my Dazzling Diamonds to give it some sparkle. I faked my brads as well! I had some Ruby Red brads but I wanted some sparkle, so I put a mini glue dot onto the head of the brad and dipped it into Dazzling Diamonds. You can never have to much sparkle!
I colored the image with my Aquapainter and SU! inks and then cut her out. The sentiment is from Amy's set, Christmas Sentiments.
My last post talked about this being my last month on the All That Scraps Design Team. I thought I'd share some of the great stuff I received over the last year. So....If you read this entire post, I guess you are lucky! Leave me a comment about how you are doing with your Christmas shopping. I'll choose a lucky winner on Friday morning and you can choose from some CC Designs sets I have here! Good luck!

Love the paper.. What year is it from? I need to get a couple things for my oldest daughter. I also need to finish the handmade presents for parents! Then I will be done. It is much easier to buy a gift than to make one but they love the homemade ones so much better!

This cards is great. Love how she's "sitting" on the DP. Gotta check out the rest of the images in that set.

My shopping is almost done. Just one or two more things. I thought my Christmas cards would be done by now but they are not. I'm finishing them tonight. Watch your mailbox! (Crossing my fingers on the candy!)

Hi Crystal - beautiful card! As far as my shopping, I have been done for a couple of weeks. I have everything wrapped and the items that needed to be mailed are already arriving at their destinations. This is the first time in years that I have accomplished this feat and I love it!
