OCC Sketch Challenge & Chicken Girls Sneaky Peeky

Lori Rider is our challenge hostess for this month on the OCC. Your challenge this week is a sketch challenge and I'll refer you to the OCC blog for the sketch.


Get a load of this darling snowman duo from a new release on October 16th from Chicken Girl Stamps by i {heart} papers!!! Aren't these snowmen quite the pair?


I stamped the image with black soot distress ink and coloured them with copic markers. The snow is sparkled over with frosted lace stickles, to give it that diamond dusted shine like real snow. There's only a couple of things I like about snow. I love how spectacular fresh snow looks all clean and fluffy and I love the way it sparkles in bright sunlight. Both of these things can be enjoyed from the warmth of my living room with my hands firmly wrapped around a hot cup of cocoa.


This snowflake is a lot o' shine for this card, but this spot on the card was begging for a little something up here! I used Create a flake 1 snowflake die by spellbinders - please note it is a limited edition die available for a limited time only!!! {insert public announcement to all you ladies who buy spellbinder dies from me...} Again, I used stickles to bling up this snowflake for a little sparkle and shine.



I love charms. This is a snowflake charm from a carded set I have called Embellish It! I used quite a few of their charms and this snowflake set comes in both gold and silver.

Keep an eye out for another sneak a peek coming up on my blog in the next week of a second set being released and visit the blogs of the other Chicken Girls to see some more peeks!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
