Mini Die-o-rama

Hi, everyone!
Happy weekend!
I had a little bit of time on my hands this week. t has been quiet, with my son at "home" in MI for the holidays, and hubby having to work almost every day (he had Christmas Day off, thankfully).
I pulled out more of my dies that have been neglected: heck, everything in my craft space has been neglected for a couple months! This is another card that was heavily inspired by KittieKraft

I did not have the snowflake die that she used on her card, so I made my card front by cutting out a snowflake shape with my Silhouette machine. It is on pop-dots, and behind it are my layers that were made with the Impression Obsession Fir Tree Border die. My "snow" and trees are crimped with my Fiskars crimper and wavy crimper. The snow edge was cut with my Fiskars deckled edge scissors.
I cut the sledding boy from a die that is part of the pack by Papertrey Ink. It comes from the 
In the Meadow die set.  My snowflakes were cut from a Cheery Lynn 4x4 die: C146 Snowflakes. I love this die! One pass through the Big Shot creates lots of small, assorted snowflakes that are perfect for cards!
Well, that's it for me, today. Crafting has been sporadic: I've had some major shoulder pain and am in month three of physical therapy, so PT days are rough. I'm waiting on MRI results (hopefully next week I'll know specifics of what is going on), and in the meantime, I am just trying to come up with a few things here and there to stay a little bit active on the blogging!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed your visit!
Happy Crafting!
