New card and some coaster creations

Hi everyone...hope you all had a good weekend! I found out that I won the $50 gift certificate from Stamping Bella, so I was pretty happy with that. I just wanted to share some things that I've been creating these past few days.

On Friday, I went to a class at a LSS, Crop Til You Drop, where we made the coaster creations (Alison, the instructor, came up with the ideas for them...she's super talented and I hope to attend another one of her classes again soon). We made a coaster calendar, a calendar with a photo attached, a coaster box (I'm not finished with that one yet as I still need to find pictures to attach to all four sides), and a mini accordion photo album (I didn't open it to show the inside as there are no pictures in it yet...I'm hoping to finish filling it after the holidays). I've never done anything like these before but I'm hoping to possibly make some more again before Christmas.

The Bella card I made today as I stayed home from work (I wasn't feeling well). It's starting to snow here so I thought that the stamp was perfect for the card. I chose my Snowbunnybella stamp and inked it up with Versafine ink in Onyx Black. I also added some shimmer embossing powder to it before colouring it in with my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I used my snowflake cuttlebug embossing folder for the background and added some snowflake brads that I bought recently (I added some shimmer to them too with Versamark ink and shimmer embossing powder).I also added some Stickles in Star Dust to the pompoms and trim around the hood. I think the card turned out pretty cute and I hope my mom likes it (as I'm planning to give it to her tomorrow).

Hopefully I can find the time to create some more cards this week...if not, then I will probably have some to show on the weekend as my mom and I are planning to start our Christmas cards sometime this weekend. Hope everyone has a great night and thanks for stopping by!!
