Remaining Optimistic In The Face Of Determined Opposition

Hello.  Welcome.  I have decided I will not buy any new craft stuff this year and will instead bow down and worship Mr Random in the hopes that he will do his thing and draw my name from the realms of challenge entries.  Of course, this resolution, like so many before it, may fall by the wayside.  But since I have been putting into play another plan, to organise myself a little better, I have discovered much crafty stash sadly underused.  Yeah, even some items that I may never use or ones that look way too familiar because they are present more than once!!  If you haven't seen there is a giveaway on my blog and some of this underloved and overstocked stash could be yours.  Please read carefully and participate in my little game and maybe Mr Random will love you.  

As you know, you have to be in it to win it so here's a CAS card, heavy on the S

I hope this hasn't been done before but it punches buttons for Mark's Finest Paper Challenge where they want CAS with snow, and I am also hoping a sentiment counts as an image with my diecut snowflake playing best man.  The sentiment is a Crafty Individuals stamp embossed with silver powder.  The snowflake is Cheery Lynn Snowflake #2, cut in white to give that faux emboss look.  Done.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
