All Things Pretty at CASology


It’s time for a new cue word over at CASology!  This week will probably have you thinking of all things beautiful.  With whisperings of snow beginning to appear in the forecast, my thoughts turned to that first snowfall each winter.  I think the first snow is always the prettiest, isn’t it?  After that, I don’t get quite as enthused about additional snowfall.

I used a retired snowflake die and a sentiment from the Uniko Studio’s wonderful Stunning Snowflakes stamp set to create a white on white design with a pop of color.  I die cut the snowflake on the main panel and removed just the very center to create a little window for a stamped heart (Strike a Pose set).  I added a small clear gemstone to the center of the heart to draw the eye in even more.

Be sure and go say a quick hello to the design team members & this week’s guest designer!  They work so hard each week to create inspiration!

Then, don’t forget to link up your own creation on the challenge blog by Monday at NOON (CST) for your chance to win a prize from this week’s sponsor, Uniko Studio!

It’s raining and extremely grey here today.  We didn’t get much for rain last month, so I suppose it’s about time we had some of our usual rainy autumn days.  I’m hoping to settle in and spend some time doing creative projects (after laundry, ironing and supper prep & a good run, that is)!  I have a newborn photo session that I need to finish editing and some card sets to make for a couple individuals!  Coffee will be on the menu beyond breakfast today!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

    Melissa, I love your gorgeous card with that amazing inlaid snowflake, that teeny, tiny little red heart with the even smaller gem grabbed my eyes and immediately went directly to it.
    The sentiment is just so very sweet.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Maria Rodriguez.

    Yes, I agree, Melissa…the first snowfall is the prettiest! I always find snow fascinating…and I am still young at heart, I can't wait for the first snowfall to come! That sweet little heart inside the inlaid snowflake is just perfect!
