Clean and Simple Snowflake

This week I start off my projects with the latest Clean and Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast. I chose to use a snowflake, which is appropriate since we just received our first snowfall here in southcentral Alaska last night! I am SO happy to finally have snow! I love,love,love snow!!!

The challenge was to use white with just one other color, so I chose Night of Navy. The snowflake is embossed with a dark blue powder and then Night of Navy ink was used for the sentiment.

And just a few pics of what inspired me,hehehehe:

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: The Snowflake Spot
Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy
Ink: Night of Navy
Accessories: CB Swiss Dots folder, whisper white ribbon, dark blue embossing power from Stampendous,Versamark, sponge

Sunday Stamps and Color Challenge

I've gotten behind on the challenges over at Holly Beary Creations so I combined 2 of them today to try and get myself back on track. For this card I did the Sunday Stamps challenge, letter 'I' and I used the In Everything Give Thanks set. Then I used the colors from Holly's color challenge, which were Basic Gray/Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White and Green Galore. I used a layout shown in the current SU catalog, on page 23.

I think right now there is so much to be thankful for, so thats why I chose this set. I live in a beautiful state, I've got wonderful friends and family, and the net allows me to meet fellow stampers and check out the wonderful creations of everyone. When I am feeling down I just remember all of this and how truly lucky I am!
