CASE-ing Christmas #24

Happy Wednesday night all!  The work week is now more than half over...yippee!!  Are there any awesome plans for the weekend out there?  On Saturday, my company picnic will be held at Knoebel's Grove Amusement park.  I can't wait!  I've pretty much been going there all my life, but it's fun now to watch my girls enjoy themselves.  Nowadays, I just enjoy the food...lol!
Well onto business...I'm here to share the card I made for CASE-ing Christmas #24, which is to CASE this lovely card by DT member Rocky:
Isn't this a great card?  I love the Tim Holtz snowman inked up with a music sheet stamp in that shade of blue!  Well, I don't have that Tim Holtz die, but I DO have the embossing folder, so that is the focal point of my card:
To bring in the blue, I used Waterfall Stickles to color the snowman impression.  I couldn't find a suitable stamp in my collection for the "25" element on Rocky's card, so I found a Momenta sentiment that I thought fit the feel of the card.  I added a snowflake button, just as Rocky did on her card. 
Challenges:
CASE-ing Christmas #24:  CASE Rocky's card
CHNC Extra:  Anything Goes
CHNC #233:  Snow in June
Creative Card Crew:  White on white
ABC Christmas:  "L" for lyrics ("Do you want to build a snowman?")  ;)
I guess that's all for this evening...please take care of you and yours until next time!

Take it EASEL-y

All I could think of when I would read this prompt for the current Tiddly Inks challenge is the Eagles' song, "Take it Easy."  Not a bad song to hum while working, lol!  But back to the challenge, here is my card for it:
 
 
I'm getting this linked next to the last minute, but this card has been sitting on my desk in various stages of completion since I read about the challenge!  I used the Wryn Blooms image, and colored her up using various brands of markers.  The easel card is a file from Bird, found here.  I decided to use some Silhouette flower cut files on the bottom inner layer for something different.  I added Cotton Candy Stickles to the outlines, and then glued them back into place.  I made a button embellishment to hold up the easel portion.  Just a simple "Hi!" sentiment and a gem butterfly, and this is done.
