Stampin B's Star Challenge and Blog Award

The Stampin B's Design Team challenge given by NancyRuth this week is to use a star or stars on your card.
I used a Sassy Cheryl's digi called 'Holding the Star Snowman'. I think he is just so cute. I love snowmen so much I am surprised all my winter and Christmas cards aren't made using snowmen.
My card was an easy one. I cut out the star and gloves, embossed, and glittered. Added a ribbon and misc.
blue button. I colored his scarf with Copics and dyed the ribbon with Copics to match.

Stamps: Digi by Sassy Cheryl's-Holding the Star Snowman, Hot Off the Press-Christmas Words (sentiment)
Paper: PTI and Georgia-Pacific white cardstock, Stampin'Up! Not Quite Navy, My Mind's Eye-Signature Christmas Holiday Glitter Book
Accessories: Cuttlebug cut and emboss for frame, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, EK Success edge punch-Starry Night (used to punch out small stars on sentiment piece, grosgrain ribbon dyed with Copics, Crystal stickles, VersaMark Dazzle-Frost, glitter embossing powder on large star, Copics for coloring

I am also very excited to receive a blog award from my friend Julie at Julie Makes Cards. Thanks so much!

I get to pass this award to three blogs that inspire me. First, I have to tell you three things about me that make the person I am.

I love to sing and sing in two choirs-church choir and a community praise and worship choir with appx. 150-200 voices
I like to needlepoint and that used to be my main hobby BEFORE card creating came along. I especially love pretty, needlepointed sofa pillows.

I really like going to college football games and was a cheerleader in my younger days. Go Team, Go!!!!

I am passing this blog award on to these three ladies who make beautiful cards and inspire me to do better.
Carol-Chocolate Crafts, and Bears, Oh My!
Carol-Our Little Inspirations
Davi-Alstromeria's Artistry

Pay these ladies a visit and enjoy their beautiful work.

Oh Benzi thank you so much for the award. I am so flatter by your kind and sweet words about me. I just love your Snowman card here. He is hanging that sparkly star to light the way!! How sweet and joyous your card is. Great job!

Bear Hugs,

Brenda this snowman is ADORABLE! Love how you paper pieced the mitten to hold the star!

I bet it is amazing being in a large choir. I am often so moved by the beautiful music at church I can imagine it must be even more incredible to be in the choir!

I'm with you on the snowmen - I love them all, and your card is so cute with the snowman holding the star! I love how it spills over the edge!
You've paid me the greatest compliment by mentioning that I inspire you! I'm so humbled by that, and thank you so much for passing this award on to me! Congratulations as well on receiving it and thanks for passing it along to me :)

So nice to learn a little more about you (I already knew about your love of snowmen!), and congrats on the award! Your snowman card is very cute, and you're right: I'm surprised more of your cards don't feature them! (I know: too many stamps, so little time)

OMGosh, what a cutie! Fab colour combo too, and I love how you pulled all your colours together with your ribbon and button.
I love snowmen too (not so keen on the real stuff that's needed to make them LOL!)
Oh, and congrats on your award too!
