Visiting Artist at Gingersnap Creations!

I am a little past the due date as with getting and setting up the new computer an e-mail went missing in action!  When I opened an e-mail from Ali asking me to be a "Visiting Artist" for Gingersnap Creations, I was both excited and nervous.  What an honor and I hope I live up to their expectations!  I love this group and all of the wonderful artists, so I was very happy to accept.

My first challenge piece as "visiting artist" is for the GC81 Chestnut Theme: Snowpeople!  I used alcohol foil and cuttlebug highlights from the Technique Junkies.  The embossing folder and snowman die are all Tim Holtz products.  The colors are more blue, but the snowman shows up as kind of silver.  Hope you all will join us in for the fun and a great group!

Thank you for looking and commenting!

Hi Terry,
Thank you so much for your awesome comment...I knew when you saw the Tussie Mussie that you'd see why I said it took so many hours...it's hard to see the detail on the blog.

Oh, there's a woman named Terri that left a comment and she has a video that is awesome for a banner...you might want to go see it...I wish I had seen it before I made mine because mine took too many hours...lol
Hers is perfection!
