Beautiful Snow

I know that the hype this week has been CHA out in California but I spent the past few days in NYC at a different trade show- The New York International Gift Fair.  It's the place where buyers go to buy merchandise for their stores so all the new, hot items are there on display- everything from home decor to gifts to accessories and so much more.  That trip was for my other passion- my business.  We'll talk more about that another time but just in case you were wondering, that's where I've been for the past 3 days.

I'm back now.... back to snow!  We're expecting a storm tonight so it's the perfect time to show you this snowflake notecard.  This is done with an old Peddlers Pack stamp and a technique called Acetate & Tissue.  Click here for instructions on how to do it (thanks to splitcoaststampers techniques).  It's pretty easy to do and the end result is stunning.  I added lots of glitter to this one to make it really sparkle.

Before I go, I feel the need to say a final farewell to a faithful old tool that has outlived it's supply of refills.  This is an OLD ATG gun that I've been using for at least 12-15 years.  I stockpiled refills for it and even though they stopped making refills several years ago, I just used up the last one.  I'm so sad.  

Now I have to get myself a new gun to replace this perfectly good old one because it's useless without refills.  So RIP old ATG gun.  I will miss you.

Beautiful -- love snowflakes (on cards that is --- kind-of getting tired of it on the ground).
Thanks for posting it.
