La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge #12

Before I get to this week's challenge, I have a couple things to share. First, Monday was our Guest DT Katie Tate's birthday! Her creations are totally fabulous and she is a queen of combining challenges, as well as putting on her own challenges at Cooking It Up With Katie, so please check her out and leave her some love!

Second, La-La Land Crafts will be at the Stamp in the Hand Show in Carson, CA on November 14-15 at the Stamp On Over booth, so if you're anywhere near there, stop by! Ok, now on to the challenge!

This week our challenge was set by Kathy and is to use die cuts/punches. This is a pretty easy challenge for me since I use my Nesties on almost every single card I make! But just to make it fit the challenge a little more, I also used a snowflake diecut from Sizzix:

I used the super cute Candy Cane Lala and this sketch from Card Patterns:

Lala was colored with Copics, cut out and popped up with foam boosters. I gave her a snowy hill to stand on by coloring in a hill shape with a really light blue Copic, and then covering the hill with glitter. The snowflake was die cut from glitter cardstock and the final touches were the gems, ribbon and a Making Memories rub-on. The papers are all Basic Grey (Eskimo Kisses collection).

Other challenges: We'd love to have you play along with us! All the details can be found on the La-La Land Crafts Blog. TFL!
