Goodies! Goodies! Goodies!

I went to the StampScrapArtTour rubberstamp convention in Carroll County yesterday and it is taking everything in my power not to go back today!!! I must say that Inky Antics was my favorite place! I went back twice! Something about Sweety the Snowman captured my heart! I showed restraint, but WILL be ordering more!
So here is a photo of my goodies! (doesn't include some other unmounted I got and other odds-n-ends. And I had to play with Sweety last night!
The base card is Green Galore CS and I used my Snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss the entire front. Sweety is stamped on Whisper White CS with Basic Black ink and then colored in with Prismcolored pencils and gamsol. I outlined some of it with a Stardust Glitter Pen that I also got from Inky Antics. This was then layered onto Green Galore and Real Red CS. I punched out the corners with the Ticket Corner punch by SU. I then took a strip of Real Red CS and using my Crafter's Tool Kit eyelet template to get a straight placement by tracing the larger holes with a pencil and then used my 1/4" circle punch to punch the holes out. I didn't like them plain, so I added some green Stickles in the circles. I then used Riveting (retired hostess set) and cut out the inside of the circle and used the small snowflake punch (retired) for the inside. I added some red ginham ribbon and voila, I was done! I think I need to ground him some and put a shadow under the candy he is flying down the hill on.
