Snowflake Tag & a Freebie

Hi all!

If  you are looking for the Fred She Said Christmas Challenge go HERE.

Here are the details of my Snowflake tag project :)

For the tag, I drew a snowflake to use in my cutting machine.

I have a Digital Snowflake Freebie for you to download. It is on my (UPDATED JUN 2017 link working)


  I have included an SVG cutting file, a black png for auto-tracing into your cutting software if you can't open SVG.  Also a bunch of PNGs and coloured jpgs you can print and cut or design with.

I cut the snowflake out of cereal box board and painted with gesso, inked with a glue pad and applied glamour dust.  I cut the backer out of card stock and sponged on some Iced Spruce distress ink.  The image is Hat Tipping Snowman.  I embellished with Stickles and a Viva Pearl Pen and MS Branch punch.

I'd like to thank DEBBIE and CAROL H for being on the Fred She Said DT.  Sadly they are leaving and we will miss them and their wonderful contributions.   I wish you both all the best - BIG HUGS!

:)*  Fred

Hat Tippin Snowman & UPDATE

Hi everyone!  Sorry it's been a wee bit quiet.  We have had family health issues and Dave's mom has been in and out of the hospital with heart problems ( one being a heart attack ) and the family is helping get my SIL's house ready and rearranged so that Dave's mom can move in with them.  Just ALOT going on!  .... and now we are into the holiday season.. busy busy!

Fred She Said will be having a fun little Christmas Challenge this Friday, Dec. 16th.  Please stop by and see what we are up to, play along and/or see the wonderful projects the Fred She Said DT have come up with :)

ALSO I got a chance to draw a cute snowman.  He's tipping his hat and wishing you a very Merry Christmas!  .... and he's in the STORE ;)

Have a great day!

:)*  Fred
