Whimsy chips

Good morning everyone!!!  I hope you are ready for Christmas because this is the week it will get here.  Can you believe that Friday is Christmas?  It seemed to have snuck up on us yet again.  I really hope that I can get a better head start on the festivities than I did this year.  Of course that is what I hope every year.
Today is Monday, obviously, which means it is time for another wonderful Whimsy challenge.  This challenge with last for 2 weeks.  That means you have until Jan 4th 2010 to post your creative project.  Can you believe it, 2010, this is the last challenge of the year, simply craziness.
For this challenge you are to use chipboard.  You don't have to use chipboard on every square inch of your project, just one piece will do.
I have gotten burnt out on cards so when I sat down to make my project for this challenge I decided to do a wall hanging/ornament/whatever you want it to be.

I started off with some chipboard I had in my stash and cut it out using my biggest labels die that I got for my birthday.  Since the chipboard was "naked" and I wanted it clothed I cut out some enchanted evening paper using the same die and glued it on.
I used some more vintage paper from making memories and used a Martha Stewart punch to give it some lace feel.  From there I just used some silver paper in my stash to mat the adorable snowman on.  He was colored using both copic markers and koh-i-noor pencils.  The flower and buttons are also chipboard I had lying around in my desk.  The sentiment is from PTI but suits the cutie snowman so well.  I just love how it turned out.  So different than my usual stuff, in my opinion.  I am trying to jump out of my comfort zone here lately and so far it is suiting me, I think.
Thanks for stopping by!!!
