Warmest Wishes...

The pine stays green in winter...wisdom in hardship. -Proverb

Today is Friday and that means Friends with Flair day at Unity Stamp Co! I joined again this week after a super fun time last week...make sure to go to the Unity Blog and check out the master list, LOTS of fun creations to see!

I used last week's Eat Sleep Stamp sketch for the layout on my card, Tracy has been giving us wonderful sketches for Year and as a celebration she is giving away a $52 Shopping Spree!! There is one catch though, and that is where YOU come in...to get a chance to win we have to get 52 entries!!! Use the sketch (She has a Bonus Sketch up now) and link to her blog!!!

For my card I broke out my NEW
Eskimo Kisses paper and used the pine trees from my Everythings Simply Tiny kit, I paper pieced the trees and then added lots of sparkle with stickles, jewels and some jewel snowflakes!

I added a 2nd Gen inked image to the inside and to the corner of the envelope (you can Just see it poking out behind the card)

Supplies;
Stamps: Everythings Simply Tiny (Unity,) Holiday Treats (PTI)
Paper: Eskimo Kisses (Basic Grey,) White, Dark Chocolate CS (PTI,) Soft Sky CS (SU)
Ink: Rich Cocoa (Memento)
Misc: Clear Crystals, Jewel Snowflakes, Plain and Scalloped Circle Nesties, Twill Ribbon, Stardust Stickles, Adhesive Foam Dots,
Snowflake Punch
