Wednesday Stamper

This is my card for Wednesday Stamper's "Snowflake Kisses" challenge. Don't you just love that theme? You must see Wil's inspiration piece -- it will take your breath away!
I'd like to say this piece didn't scan that well and it looks better IRL, but I was a little disappointed with it. I just couldn't achieve exactly the look of snow I wanted on my piece and the glitter doesn't quite show up like I hoped.
The window stamp is from Serendipity Stamps. The girl image is from Paperbag Studios. The little bird is from Crafty Secrets.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well, it's a good mail day when a complementary Stampers Sampler appears in your mailbox.
It's even greater when you see more than one of your submissions published.

I was thrilled to see the one-page Different Point of View feature.




I also had six of my houses accepted for their house template.
The bottom two on each of the following pages are mine.







Oh, and did you notice that it is one of my houses that appears on the cover of the magazine?Look closely at the third piece on the cover.
Like I said, it was a good mail day!

Oh Louise!! A big round of applause for you not only for a lovely card for the "Snowflake Kisses" theme...love that she's looking out the window...but for being published "big time" in Stampers' Sampler. I'm going to have to find one of these issues to gaze upon your wonderful artwork.

Your card is Darling, as is that theme, even if I have no desire to feel any flakes that have been prominent in my world of late.

CONGRATULATIONS on taking over the Stampers Sampler magazine. Will you be renaming it? Your stuff is always more than worthy, especially the houses.
