Challenge #182 At Shopping Our Stash

Ah Shopping Our Stash is  back after a holiday rest with a new challenge, the theme is Thrice as Nice….you need to use at least 3 different patterned papers on your project. I know from experience it isn’t as easy for me as it sounds but I think I did a fine job.  Of course I made this before the Christmas season was upon us, I needed all the time I could get the last week before the “big” day and I made this to send to one of my “snarky” sisters, I think she liked it.
The papers were all from American Crafts 6 X 6 pad called Hot Cocoa, it was a lot different than other holiday pads as it was red, black, kraft and white. The bottom layer is one piece that had the snowmen on it.
Close up of the cute snowman, he/she is one of a set of 4  I bought at the Stamp Barn in Stittsville before they were bought by the Frog’s Whiskers in Campbellford ON, although this set is not on their site, but there are sure lots of great stamps in both wood and cling mount.
Using leftover scraps and the top note sizzix die I finished the inside with a seasonal sentiment.
If you celebrate the season I hope your holiday was filled with friends, family and fun.

I would like to enter this in Freshly Made Sketch #167
