Magical Monday's Freebie of the Month

Oh my gosh, don't ya just love this new image "Who's Candy" by Nina at Paper Cupcakes! It's a freebie this month and we hope you will join our challenge and share your talent with us. Pat Pedder challenged us to add glitter and ribbon to our Christmas projects this week.  The design team have created some awesome projects to give you that gentle touch of inspiration we all desperately need at one time or another. So, with that said, we are all looking forward to seeing your wonderful project this week.

Since I played around in my craft room a lot this past week I forgot to make notes on some of the cards I made, and can you believe it, this was one of them.........DUH!  I'm also entering this in the Stamp Something Challenge.

Here is what I remember using:
  • DP is DCWV Christmas Stack
  • Colored with Copics - paper pieced the scarf, vest and hats
  • I had a square brad the size of his nose (amazing) and covered it with black glitter
  • The snowman mouth was done with teeny antique brass stick ons (no buttons that tiny)
  • Crystal Snow was added to the snowballs in the pail
  • A combination of Crystal Snow and Polar White FS for the snow
  • Green and Christmas Red Stickles were used for the gumdrops - as a touch was also added to the lollipops
  • Sentiment is from last years stash as is the ribbon
  • Bow Easy for bow (a must have for me) I'm doing good to tie tennis shoe laces
  • CM Corner punch
Can't wait to see what you create with this wonderful image this week. Now hop on over to Paper Cupcakes to get your free image and then link your creation to the challenge blog.  Thanks so very much for stopping by to visit and I hope to see you again soon. Hope you have the time to leave me a comment so I'll be sure to stop by your blog and see what's new with you.
"Hugs" Carol

This is very pretty - I like how you did the sky background and the background paper you used is beautiful. The gummy candies are perfect with the sprakles on them!!

Such a wonderful card, Carol. I adore your paper piecing, it caught my eye when I first saw it at TMITA. Will have to remember that. Your stickles and snow came out perfectly. Thanks for always being an inspiration and for being a great cheerleader. We love ya!
