Anything but a Card at My Craft Spot!

Happy Monday, my sweet friends! I hope you had a blessed weekend. :o) I'm a bit behind on your inspiring blogs, but will try to visit you later today. I am still struggling with the pain from my arm injury, but there has been improvement.

A new challenge begins today at My Craft Spot! This week we are asking you to create anything but a card. The possibilities are truly endless! For my inspiration, I made a sweet little friend for a recipient of this month's I Feel the Love Project. :o)

A Pouch Pal, soon to be filled with a little surprise in the pocket:
This cutie pie is from the Christmas Pouch Pal cut file set from Treasure Box Designs. I used Core Couture paper for every millimeter of him, as he is sparkling with love. :o)
My snowy paper is from Bo Bunny, which I've decorated with a few of my favorite things! I created a banner with the Tiny Tags metal dies and lined it with a fun pom trim that reminds me of snowballs. :o) I combined two stamp sets to decorate my wintry banner. The snowman and the word 'snow' are from Stamping All Around Christmas, while 'hugs' is from Tiny Tags 3

The gorgeous layered snowflake in the center is from the Memory Box Precious Snowflakes metal die set, which I've accented with rhinestones. (How could I not?)
Thank you for visiting! Have a sweet and sparkly day. :o)
