Sassy Cheryl's Challenge "Punches and/or Dies"

This week's challenge at Sassy Cheryl's is to use those punches and/or dies...come on now, you know you have them!  I love them, but sometimes I'm just too stinking lazy to use them-sad, sad, SAD!  This week, I may have gone overboard!  I used four different dies on this card.  

First, however, I hope you'll take a good look at this fabulous snowman.  What a perfect name for this happy guy juggling the word "joy".  He's one of Sassy Cheryl's newest creations.  She's getting us ready for the Christmas/winter season with bunches of mighty cute images!  I colored this little fellow with Copics-I honestly don't know why I bother to mention this little fact any more because if you've visited here more than once, you know that's my medium of choice!  I hope to brush up on my pencil skills this week.  Don't hold your breath, though.  I LOVE my Copics!  After I colored him, I cut him out-it's therapy!  He needed a little sparkle and shine to go with his personality and his snow encrusted body, so I got out the Stickles

And, then, the card and those dies---too much?!  The bottom is a new one by Marianne Designs.  I am very fond of this one-in fact, I have an extensive M.D. die wish list...sigh!  The snow flake and the tree are by either Memory Box or Poppy---sorry I'm not sure which.  For the longest time, I assumed they were one company as they appeared around the same time and their dies are so similar.  The banner and it's stamp are also Marianne designs.  After all was said and done, I didn't like the tree and wanted to peel it off-ah, no...not without destroying the base!

If you hopped with us last week, be sure to see if you are the lucky winner.  Regardless of what you did last week, this week is a brand new opportunity to show US what you can do with a Sassy Cheryl's image and your dies/punches!  You cannot win if you do not enter!
