Digi Haven Challenge Snow or Snowflakes

This week at Digi Haven the Challenge is Snow or Snowflakes. The sentiments that the design team used this week are from our own Design Team Member, Mynnette. In addition, Mynnette has graciously agreed to give the winner 3 images. Di Digi's is also giving the winner a $10 Gift Certificate. Challenge will last for 2 weeks. 

Here is my card:

Finished Card: 5" x 5"

Cardstock: White, Black and Patterned Paper
Dearie Dolls Digital Image "Twigs Snowman Color"
Spectrum Noir Markers
On A Stampage Mynnette's Sentiment "I Think You're Cool!"
Handmade Baker's Twine
Spellbinders Shapeabilities Floral Doily Motifs (Largest and 3rd Largest)
Queen and Co Pearls Pearl, 2 Large, 2 Medium and 2 Small
Extra Fine Glitter
Mounting Tape

For the first time ever, I used an already colored version of an image from Dearie Dolls. I added some shadow and glitter. I thought the Spellbinders shapes looked like snowflakes. In the middle of the sentiment "Cool", I added 2 small pearls, as well as the large pearl on the twine and the ones in the corner. As you can see, the background has a glitter shimmer. I like the way it turned out. what do you think?

Hope you decide to join in the fun. Don't forget to check out all the other designer's projects.

I have something else that I would like to share with you...
For the past month, my husband and I have been working on a home improvement project....well, let me start at the beginning...
Before Christmas, I bought some toilet bowl cleaner. It unfortunately got spilled on my hall carpet and this is what happened:

Yes, it ATE my carpet!

So, after Christmas we decided to fix the problem. We tore up the carpet on the stairs:

Then I got sick...103 fever, strep and flu! After feeling better, we cut, stained and polyurethaned the steps:

Next we added the trim:

We finally finished the steps:

 and from above:

Then we tore up the carpet in the hall, but I got sick AGAIN...103 fever and flu! (woo hoo)

Finally, we were able to start:

And we finally finished yesterday, trim and all. Here is the finished project:

and from the other side:

We also replaced the hall light. It only took about a month. There is one more thing we would like to do...replace all the doors. Soon, but not today! lol  I want to take the time to thank my husband and my sons (they helped too). I really like the way it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by.
Please leave a comment. I always love reading them.

imagine what you could do...

  2. Super cute stuff eats through carpet...hmmm. Great flooring!! Lee-Ann :)

  3. Awesome card and gorgeous floors. I'm wondering though ... you got really sick each time you ripped up the carpet ... coincidence? If so I'm glad it's gone and you now have those beautiful floors. Hey, thanks for you know what too. I posted on the FB group. You rock girlie!!! ♥ Denise

  5. I LOVE all the shimmer and glitter on this darling card, Dana! And your hallway and stairs look AMAZING! How talented are you?! ;) HUGS, friend!

  6. Your card is super cute! I think those shapes look like snowflakes, for sure. Your home improvement project is terrific! First I can't believe how that cleaner ate your rug! Yowza! But I love how you finished your steps with the wood and white paint; such a nice contrast. Everything turned out great.

  7. Love your card! The snowman is so cute and love the background paper! Love your new floor too! My stairs and upstairs hall have been unfinished for over a year! Yikes!! We tore out the carpet and I decided to re-texture the walls and paint before doing the flooring. I got 95% of the wall textured and then hurt my back and have not been back at it! Hubby is not allowed to paint, so.....until I feel I can do it or until our daughter finds time to do it for me....I live in an unfinished state! So glad you got better and got yours done!
