Snowballs for sale!... 500 Follower Prize

Hey Ya'll,
Well, we are so excited that you are here with us today, but we are also a little sad.  This 500+ Follower Celebration has been a gift of Joy for us.  We literally feel like Christmas is already here!  Today is a little sad because it's the last project and prize day of the Celebration.  If you haven't heard about it yet, click on the Celebration banner in the top right corner of this blog to go to the beginning, but hurry... Today is your last day to post.

Now, for the project of the day!  We think this is one of our favorite cards of all times.  This is a 1/4 card, which is unusual for me, but Wow!  What a punch it has.  This is one of our bulk cards this year because it was so easy to do.
 I used red card stock for the base.  I cut mats from a gray polka dot and a black, red and white snowflake paper.  I used white for the next mat and the base for the stamp.  I used red for the scalloped oval and I inked all of this with a black ink.  The snowman is from Santa's Village Imagine cartridge and cut at a height of 3.00.
 If you blow up this picture, you can see some of the details.  I used some iridescent stickles on the snowman as well as glossy accents on his eyes and button and arms.  I used Peppermint Twine from My Craft Spot and just started with one side and crossed over until I had it all the way around the oval.  Love how it looks!  I also made a bow with it.  The Snowman For Sale is a stamp from My Craft Spot.
For the inside, I used the same cuts as the front, but made the frame red and the oval white instead!  I stamped the sentiment as well.  When it was done, it was one of those moments you get when you think to yourself.  Wow!  I am getting pretty good at this.  Hee! Hee!  Sorry... I really like this one and thought it deserves a little ego boost.  Hee! Hee!  Well, I hope you all like it as much as we did.  Well, since today is the last day, we have something special for one commenting follower!  Today's comments will add you to the grand prize drawing, but today's comments will also put you in the running for...
A FULL CONTENT CARTRIDGE!  YAY!

CRICUT HOLIDAY CAKES FULL CONTENT CARTRIDGE!
YAY!  This is such a great cartridge!  We have had it for quite some time now.  Can you see a little theme going on here?  Hee! Hee!  We thought the cake cartridges would be great to go along with the grand prize.  Did you know it is a
CRICUT CAKE MINI?!?
Well, we are thrilled that you visited today, but are so bummed that today is the last prize day.  Now, just a HEADS UP...  We had NO idea we would have such a huge response to this celebration, but we love you all and thank you so much!  We are going to do the absolute best that we can to announce all of the winners tomorrow.  We are using random.org for the daily prizes, so they should be simple.  We are worried about getting the Grand Prize drawing organized and done in time, so we may be a little late on that.  We are hoping for the best, but planning for the worst.  It's thanks to you all that we are doing this and we don't want to upset anyone, so please be patient with us.  We both work full time and it is the Christmas Shopping Season.  Hee! Hee!  Big Hugs!  See you Tomorrow!
