Let It Snow and please help me dehoard by entering my giveaway!

So we had really cold weather for a week straight with zippy precipitation.  Now the temp has risen and we have rain.  It did snow last night which was a pretty sight even if it didn't stick and was barely visible to the naked eye. 
At Sentimental Sundays our challenge this week is "Let It Snow" and we designers have whipped up some snowy creations to share with you. 


I think I mentioned my "dehoarding" attempt a few posts back?  I am really striving to use my paper stash and  I packaged up lots of stuff I am not using and was wondering if anyone would like a chance to own it?  I would love to "gift" it to someone whom doesn't mind a bit of older product.  I have almost filled a large priority mail box with paper and all kinds of embellishments and plan on adding more over the next week.If you are interested, please leave me a comment stating so and I will draw a random name December 26th.  One day after Christmas because I am going to be crazy busy until that time.  Just to let you know there are all kinds of designer papers in the lot. 
Supplies:
cardstock: Bazzill
pattern paper: Basic Grey Olivia
border die cut: Bazzill
chipboard snowflake: Melissa Frances
sticker: SRM
pearls: Queen & Co.
ribbon and bells: craft supply

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
Card Patterns: #94 Sketch
Cupcake Inspirations: #89 Photo inspiration
Daring Cardmakers: Snow Much Fun
Paper Players: #28 Use your favorite colors
Sentimental Sundays: #33 Let It Snow

Now for my advent swap update!
#10 comes from Kathy:
She covered the matchbox in fabric and then dyed/distressed to age it.  The bow is beautiful seam binding.   She tied a tiny tag with a snowflake on to the bow and tucked some sparkly filler underneath that you can see peeking out at the top of the bow.  Inside she packed it full of goodies.  Where did she find these itty bitty patterns to make this ornament?  Adorable!  She made a Santa bottle cap magnet and added a little treat!  Thank you Kathy!
#11 is this delightful matchbox with this scene inside by Nancy:
Look at all the detail!  Imagine all that hand coloring and fussy cutting!  Absolutely amazing how she created this fun scene inside the matchbox.  Such a joy to open it and see.  My daughter literally said, "wow!"
 #12 was made by Valery


For her matchbox she covered it in this embossed and glittered paper.  See the cardinal in the upper right hand corner?  It's beautiful!  She added a silver snowflake and tag with the number on the front and on the back a 3-d snow flower with a red glitter center.  Her gift inside was this incredible red ornament with a floral beaded center.  How amazing it is!  Much thanks!

Thanks for coming by.  I hope you have a blessed Sunday!

I love your card; it has a soft and elegant look. That swap looks like a lot of fun.
Papers are always fun but I think I live a bit too far away...(that means a lot of costs and I don't want you to spend that kind of many for sending something)
Have a wonderful day!
