In The Pink

This is my post live today at the
for our challenge this week using the inspiration photo below.



Hello Classy Friends!
Diane here with you today.  I am thinking a bit ahead for Valentine's Day
and created this adorable snowman for this weeks challenge
Pink and Polka Dots!


I love it when you can use a seasonal die for a non-seasonal project, don't you?
Being February is still a cold month, what can be better then a cute little
pink and polka dot snow girl, all ready for Valentines Day.


My adorable little snow girl was cut using the Cottage Cutz die Woodland Snowman.
I eliminated a few of the Christmas pieces, and added a little heart between my love birds.
I added the smallest size of Christmas Red Pearls down the front of her.
Cottage Cutz dies are very detailed and take a little longer then other dies, 
but are well worth the effort when done!  Beverly has a very nice selection of
Cottage Cutz dies in the shop, be sure to take a peek at them.

A  Large Picket Fence die from Impression Obsession was popped up behind her .

To finish I added a few Fluffy pink Clouds by Memory Box 
(clouds can be pink if I want ..lol)...and don't they look like they are "floating?"!

A few other products I always use are Scor-tape 1/2" ...Scor-tape, other then glue
is the only thing I use to secure my pieces down with.  It holds forever it seems, and I go 
through it like water...love that stuff!  I also use lots of  Joy! Foam pop ups, both in the
small and large sizes. I know it costs more to mail the thicker the card,
but I just love the 3D look, I can't help myself!

Entering the following challenges:
Crafty Catz ....Polka Dots

Brown Sugar .... Pink and Red
Cupcake Inspirations .... Snow Friends
