Craft Stamper - December Challenge

Hello Friends Welcome to another  Craft Stamper Challenge .  This month our theme for you is Snow & Ice.  We want to see you using lots of white product or seasonal makes.  I used white embossing powder for my project today.  I used the Tim Holtz Holiday Knit stencil as my background.  Then used some vellum to stamp my sentiment on.  The sentiment is from the Unity Holiday Hugs kit of the month.   Our lovely sponsor this month is Craft Box.  They have given us this lovely box of goodies to give away. So hop on over to the  Craft Stamper Blog  for the rest of the details of this month's challenge.  I can't wait to see what you create.  Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  Mandi xox
