Addicted to Stamps with Dies and Punches!

Hello friends!  I hope that you are enjoying your weekend so far!
We have had so many different things going on this entire week and the Holidays haven't even hit us yet! LOL!  Oh boy when that comes up!

There is another new challenge up over at
Addicted to Stamps
For this challenge, we would like for you to use your favorite dies and/or punches!
Such a nice and easy one!  I think my biggest problem was trying to figure out and narrow down as to which die cuts/punches that I wanted to use!!  I don't think that I have a favorite!  I love them all!
So here's what I've come up with for this challenge...
I absolutely ADORE this stamp!  It comes from Whipper Snapper.  I've had it for quite a while and have only used it once on something that I never posted to my blog and that I no longer have!

For the solid colored card stock, I've used the Stampin' Up! Basic Grey and Soft Sky for my colors here.  The snowflake paper in the background is a gorgeous piece of silver embossed snowflakes and I couldn't tell where it came from other than I got it for free with an order from somewhere! LOL!  I have really hoarded it because I think it's so stunning.

For my die cuts and punches:  I've used the Memory Box snowflake die, Martha Stewart "Goo" Border Punch, Corner Rounder Punch and Itty Bitty Shapes Punch from Stampin' Up!
I've placed rhinestones in the center of the snowflakes and where I've used the Itty Bitty Shapes punch in the center of the bow, I've added a silver glitter accent. 

Here are some other challenges I'd like to enter this for:
The Squirrel & The Fox - Animal Antics
Stampavie & More - Die Cut Embellishments
Creative Knockouts - "Get Punchy"
Cute Card Thursday - Animal Magic
The Crafter's Café - Friends
A Creative Romance - Winter Blues
Winter Wonderland - For a Child at Christmas (sending off to Stamp Smiles 4 Kids)
Pile it On (PIO44) - Animals with Character

So now you need to hop on over to the Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog to see what lovely creations my fellow design team friends have come up with using their favorite dies and punches!  I can't wait to see what you all come up with too!
I thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope that you enjoy the rest of your weekend and that you have lots of fun crafty time as well!

HUGS & SMILES

Vicki, I think I have lost the last month of my life. I do hope things have been fine with you. Being in Austin Texas for 3 weeks and them coming home and getting pneumonia and being laid up with that for another month. I was keeping all the posting and was becoming overwhelmed with all the beautiful posting and I was in no way going to get through them. So I decided to start fresh. Adorable card, the image is the cutest. Wonderful colors and a pretty ribbon and a nice touch with the snowflakes.
Hugs, Pat
