Clear It Out Challenge - Winter Wishes

Does anyone know what time it is?

That's right . . .

It's CHALLENGE time!!!

Once again, time for a new challenge over at Clear It Out Challenge
It is time to put away the duster
 (don't need those dust "bunnies" since there'll be turkey in 2 days on Thanksgiving - lol),
turn off the phone (it's only telemarketers, right?, 
and time to get your crafty on!!! And, as usual, our fearless 
leader, Laura, has come up with another AMAZING challenge 
for us.   So easy, peasy, lemon squeesy . . .

 Are you ready???

I didn't hear you . . . 

Are you ready???

Okay, it's challenge time!!!

Theme:  Winter Wishes
Stash: snowflakes (embellishments or paper)

And you have one (1) week to play (till December 1st)

This week our sponsor is:

For this week's challenge, I chose a cute little image called "Snowy Days with Rory" from Lacy Sunshine. I chose her . . . well, mainly because the Rory images are so darn cute!!!  I just love Lacy Sunshine's digi images. And since the theme this week is "Winter Wishes", I thought "Snowy Days" Rory would be perfect.  So combining it with a new snowflake border die and some of my favorite PaperTemptress papers, I went to work.  Here's how it turned out: 

Jupiter Red mica/metallic paper from PaperTemptress
Cryogen Iridescent paper from PaperTemptress
"Frostyville Frame" die (#98718) by Memory Box, Inc.
paper flowers from Bazzil Paper Basics
Frosty Lace Stickles

 One thing I was disappointed about was the die . . . I had to run it thru twice to get all the cuts.  And then have to be really careful taking it out . . . the little designs get "stuck" while getting it loose from the paper.  But all-in-all, I am really happy with the way it turned out . . . and I love learning something new or a new trick.  With this one, I now know with such an intricate designed die, to run it thru twice, use an extra shim if necessary and to go slow when taking it out. 

Remember, you have one week till December 1st to get your "Winter Wishes" projects in to Clear It Out Challenge in order to be eligible for the weekly prize.  What will your "Winter Wishes" be?

Till the next time I'm up in the night.
