Time Out - Inspired by Words Challenge #45

"Snowflakes are Winter's Butterflies"
 
OH wouldn't they be wonderful if the flakes just fluttered away, instead of being shoveled?  =]  I do love the thought!
 
Here is where my imagination took me for Time Out this week - gosh it has been some time since I've joined in, hasn't it?  Seems like it to me.  And Santa has arrived a teensy bit early this year ... seems I've been a very, very good girl - or so someone thinks!
 
I received my very first Big Shot!  Well, a girl has to have a few new things to play with on her new toy, right?  I couldn't wait to have one of the WeRMemory Keepers deeply textured embossing folders ... with a bit of gorgeous paper, not a word is necessary, just one magical snowflake that, until now, I could NOT cut:
 
 
Santa, baby ... you have been a very, very good boy, too!
 
=]  Michele

WOW! How you have managed to crank out some of your fabulous creations without having a Big Shot, means that we are all in for some even bigger treats from you now Michelle . . . not that any of yours were any the less fabulous of course . . I have that EF, it's a real beauty isn't it? BTW, who makes that fabulous snowflake? Have a great week playing with your new 'toy'. Hazel xx

You're right. No words are necessary. At least not on the card. But complimentary words for the gorgeous card are in order. Fabulous, Michele. I've been wanting that folder but it's always out of stock. I'm glad the Big Shot finally arrived. I have it on my Amazon wish list. I hope someone's looking at it. ;)

Sharron said...

Totally stunning-- both the background and the wonderful snowflake! And that blue is gorgeous!

Barb Ghig said...

Oh, how I LOVE all the texture and dimension you've created with this embossing folder...it's so striking! And what a lovely snowflake! With the bit of string behind it, this card needs nothing else, that's for sure!

Congrats on your new Big Shot! Life is good when you can die cut a crisp, clean snowflake, right? Right!

Anita in France said...

Oh my, Michele ... this is stunning ... I want to reach out and run my fingers over that amazing texture! The splendid single snowflake (with it's flurry of thread) is absolutely all you needed against the blue hues ... gorgeous! You're going to have such a FANTASTIC time die cutting with your new Big Shot ... how sweet of Santa to have recognised your goodness with an early gift!! So delighted to have you playing along with us at Time Out with this beauty! Hugs, Anita :)

I adore my Bigshot and I know you will too, but as for these folders, I 'have to' have them but have been patiently awaiting their arrival to Australia or my next US order (and my bank balance to rise lol). Your card is fabulous Michele!

cm said...

Wait a second...if you didn't have a Big Shot, what were you using for all your previous die-cuts? The debut of your good-girl gift: utterly stunning! I have a couple of those folders, as yet unopened. Ideas sparked, my friend. All I need now: a Big Shot and a beautiful snowflake (I've been good-ish *grin*)
