Was on a bit of a roll yesterday so you may get fed up with the posts today - will try and limit myself and not go mad uploading.
I have had a K and Co paper pad for a couple of years and so far have steadfastly refused to use it as I love the paper. No idea why we have an aversion to using gorgeous paper (after all we buy it cos it IS gorgeous!), but everyone I speak to confesses to doing the same. I made an early resolution that I would not hoard paper anymore - if I bought it I must use it - so heres the first card from K and Co's Winter Wonderland pad.

The design of the card was inspired by Mojo Monday's sketch - although the interpretation isn't exact as I've only used one piece of background paper I liked the circle idea!
Snowman and friend were coloured using promarkers and the usual Stickles glittery stuff to give him a 'frosty' feel!
The silver embellishments are also very very old! Bought them in a sale about 4 years ago and only have a few left - they're on elastic so I just wrapped them round the glitter circle and secured them at the back.
