Winter Joy..... PPA228



Hope to spread some joy today to those of you who may have struggled to remove words or intricate pieces from thin dies.  I came across this video on Facebook and thought I would share the news. Karen Burniston demonstrates how to use dryer sheets to make those tiny pieces slide right out!  It really is amazing and definitely brought me joy as I added a few of these cards to my holiday stash!

The snowflakes from Endless Wishes embossed in white on the middle panel aren't the kind that need shoveling. I live about three hours from the Great Lakes where communites have been buried in 5 feet of snow - with another foot or two expected.  Convoys of snowplows left our area to help out. We have escaped with just frigid temps, wind and flurries.  In the meantime I have received many comments and emails from many of you about my Hip Hip Hooray stamp that has escaped from my craft room........there have been "sightings" as far south as Georgia and as far west as Arizona..........oh will he ever return??????

  


Pals Paper Arts has a sketch challenge this week - hope you play along with this very versatile sketch!  Put your own stamp on it!

This is so beautiful, Linda. I especially love how you brought the 'dots' from the one DSP onto the snowflake piece by adding a few sequins. Thanks for the tip on the dryer sheets... can't wait to try it!
