Tilda in Cozy Coat and Olaf Like Warm Hugs!

Hello Dearest Readers,

Happy February! Are you planning something special for your significant other or kiddies this Valentine's Day? What are you planning? I'd love to know! I have to get my Valentine card making done! I just can't seem to work fast enough! I have an idea for a card for DH, but by the time I get to making hubby's card, I'll probably forget the ideas! I did that with one card already. I HATE when that happens! I had the cutest card and sentiment in my head. I was not at my work station, so I didn't write it down. By the time I got back to my craft area, the idea had vanished and never returned again! That is so annoying. I've tried and tried to remember the idea I had, but the it never returned. *sniff* It was so cute, too!

Before I go any further, I just have to tell you that Magnolia-licious has some Magnolia Mini Stamps for as low as $1.99!And if that doesn't tempt you, the prices on the minis are ridiculous! Not only that, but there are NEW Memory Box Dies to tempt you! They are so gorgeous! You should check them out!

Today is Team B's turn to share some inspiration cards using a winter theme and Doohickey Dies. Please forgive me for yet another Frozen card, LOL. I had these ideas in my head for so long and wanted to get them in card form. I refused to give up until all three were done. You've previously seen my Elsa and Anna cards. Today, you will see my Olaf card. Here it is:

Isn't that a happy card? That little Olaf is the cutest. When I first saw Tilda in Cozy Coat, I KNEW what card she was going to enhance! Those open arms just scream, "Give me a hug!" LOL I used four Doohickey Dies on the front. They are:

A. Tilda Doily Die
B. Slender Firs
C. Snowy Forest
D. Spruce

The snowflake background card stock has embossed snowflakes. I added pearls to the centers of the snowflakes as well as on the trees and lace. I forgot to do Tilda's buttons! I drew Olaf, added some matching flowers and a rhinestone cabochon with Olaf's face in the center. I turned the lace upside down because I thought the arches looked like snow drifts while the daisies reminded me of snowflakes. There is glitter around the sentiment. Tilda has been elevated on pop dots. I also used silver metallic thread for the stitching. Here are the interior panels for my card:

I used the following dies on this panel:

A. Cozy Big Snowflake
B. So Wrapped Lovely Doohickey Tag
C. So Wrapped Snowflake Tag (for the snowflake on the bow)

I love that light periwinkle color! It is so perfect for a winter/snowflake card! Here is the bottom panel:

This panel is pretty straightforward. I used lots of layering as well as the silver metallic thread. The flowers match the front and I added one Doohickey Die element, and that is:

A. Doohickey Die Kit #2 - pine needle stem.

I sure hope you like my final Frozen card, LOL. Now, I don't have to try to remember what I was going to do with the trio of Frozen cards! I got all three done! It was so much fun seeing my thoughts evolve on paper. I so loved doing each one!

Now it's your turn! Won't you join in the Winter Fun with Doohickey Dies Challenge? We'd love, love, love to see your creations!

Thank you for stopping by.
