A Metal Christmas AND Good News

 Good Afternoon, it's time for another new challenge at High Hopes Challenge, and this week our theme is "Add some Metal"

I've used this super cute snowman called Havin' a Ball Snowman......isn't he just adorable!
The sentiment Snow all Day is also from High Hopes and fit right in with the snowman.
I stamped the sentiment onto kraft cardstock using a Spellbinders label die.
The snowman has been colored with Copics, and the snowballs were done with a Viva Decor crystal pen, then stardust stickles on top....I love the way they shine.
I cut out a snowflake using matching paper and then laid it on top of a kraft cardstock one for a little more stability, added a silver snowflake charm on top which I used Aged Teal Embossing Powder onto, as well as in the upper left corner, and again on the snowflake border on top. The metal corner is from my stash.
Along the bottom I used a Marianne Designs snowy tree backdrop, and covered it with Alene's Glitter Snow, and colored the trees in teal to match the snowman.
I hope you'll join us this week for your chance to win a High Hopes stamp of your choice.

And I have some really good news today.......I was asked to become part of the official Dream Team at High Hopes..........I'm so excited, as I love the stamps, and the girls on the team are amazing......so Santa really is coming to town :-) Naturally I said YES!
