Thank Goodness It's {Fab} Friday!  Mindy Backes (Bada-Bing Paper Crafting) kicked up her new Fab Friday Challenge Blog today with a fun sketch.  If you haven't check out Mindy's blog or the new challenge blog, you mus...She had great stamping style!  The design team over at Fab Friday is awesome too!
Here's the fun sketch for the very first challenge:

And here's my taken on the sketch:
I finally got to play with the new Snow Flurry Bigz Die and I l-o-v-e it!  I see myself using this a lot for the holiday season!  It's hard to tell in the picture, but I embossed the snow flakes using the dazzling diamond technique (check out Splitcoaststampers for a tutorial). 

Supplies Used:

Paper ~ Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze, Floral District DSP
Ink ~ Baja Breeze
Stamp Set ~ Greetings of the Season
Other Supplies ~ Snow Flurry Bigz Die, Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons, Pearl Basic Jewels, Large Pearl Basic Jewels, Finishing Touches Framelits

Whew, made it through the month and I think I completed my own personal challenge of creating a card every day this month using something from the Holiday Catalog!

And with the end of the month brings the end of summer break...hip, hip, hooray!  Don't get my wrong, I love my kids, but sometimes the summers can be long and we are all ready for the break that the school day gives us. 

Wishing you all a great Labor Day weekend!

Happy Stamping!
