Sweet Snowman!

***This is my 2nd post today...please scroll down to check out my The Digi Shack post!***

Good morning again and Happy Hump Day to all!  Time is really flying by, isn't it?  We're almost into October, which happens to be my birth month!  It's time for another Wild Flower Wednesday at The Wild Flower Patch!  Today's challenge is to use a GLASS EFFECT.

I used the Snowman image for my card today...you can get yours for just $3.00!  I do love snowmen and this one is the cutest!  I tried my hand at the Cracked Glass Technique for the challenge today.  It didn't come out quite like I expected.  When I inked it I wasn't getting any ink into the cracks.  I decided I must need to bend it along the cracks I made and ink it that way...not the best idea either!  LOL!  Oh well, I guess it still looks alright.  I used some paper from My Mind's Eye stack...I love all this paper!  So yummy!  Card stock and brads from stash, TH distress ink, ribbon from e-Bay seller, Copics, nesties, UTEE, heat gun.

Check out the rest of the amazing DT to see what kind of inspiration you can get...links are on my sidebar!

I love this card and have to admit that when I saw your card in the DT gallery it sparked an idea for my project today... so, thanks for that! I wish I'd inked mine like you did but don't really know how to do that! LOL I'm not a technique person normally but this one was fun.

Love this card! Great design papers and the crackle accents are great.. I think the brown inkt doesnt look bad at all!! Just gives it a more older look and thats perfect!! Hugs xx Marley

This is so gorgeous Lelia!! I love it! Great idea to use the snowman with the cracked glass... it looks so perfectly vintage!

(P.S. Where ever did you get that side bar badge for the Chiefs? Can you believe we are 3-0?!? We need to get together for a game!!!)
