I'm not an official part of the blog hop today, but I'm glad you stopped by to see what I have created with today's set, Snowflakes.  It's hard making a snowy card when it's 90 degrees outside and, as I am writing this post, a tropical storm is brewing out in the Atlantic.  But I've got two cards for you today.  My first card is rather simple.

I used a clear sparkly Gelly Roll pen on the snowflakes to add a bit of shimmer to them and some rhinestone bling.

My second card is a bit more involved -- the front not so much . . .

. . . but the inside has some dimension.

Be sure to check out the "official" blog hop and comment on as many blogs as you can to increase your chances of winning a free stamp set.

Here's the participating Design Team for today:

Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.
