A crop party is a modern quilting bee. A group of friends gather to have girl friend time, sharing joys and sorrows while preserving memories and creating a special keepsake.

A Freshly Made Snowflake

This snowflake is cased from the talented Allisa Chilton:

As you can see, the white snowflake has eight points and snowflakes have six.  I am not usually so picky but for some reason this bugs me, so I cut the snowflake apart and glued six of the individual points into the gaps of the blue snowflake.  Both of the embellishments are retired, and I have to tell you, I am going to be very sad when I use my last rhinestone brad.  It doesn't show well, but there is a narrow strip of glitter paper along the outside edge of the chevron panel to complement the glitter in the snowflake.  I used this layout from Freshly Made Sketches:

This is one of several cards I made at Scrapbook Day.  Thank you for stopping by!  Please go see what others have done with this sketch.  Until next time, Hansi
