Take Good Care of Yourself....
Brrrrr.... baby it's cold outside!!! Holy Moly, I about died this morning watching my daughter run up the street to her friends house to get her and WALK to school. It was 10 degrees outside and the windchill made it FEEL like -1!!! Ugh!! But how true it is that kids can handle the heat AND apparently the cold better than us older peeps, huh? I offered to drive them but noooo, they wanted to walk. Seriously, we only live about a block and a half from the school and I do KNOW that when school is out... she is out about 3 minutes later! So I realize she's not out there long, but ohhhhh I just can't imagine passing up a ride in a warm car!!! LOL
This sweet little image is from Gina K Designs, "Warm and Cozy Christmas" set. It is an older set and I have to laugh when I take it out because it was back when Gina's set were in the tins. I have quite a few of those older sets and I'm always amazed that at least once every season I have to grab one for just that perfect set.
My card started with a base of Elegant Laid white from the Paper Temptress. I LOVE this paper... the thickness and texture make it feel like such a rich, "elegant" card stock! As you can see, I torn a bit off the edge giving a little deckled look. I used my Spellbinders Lattic Rectangles to cut a piece from the Mica/Metallic Aquamarine paper. Love the shine on this paper!! I printed my sweet image on Vintage Silver Lustre and used my Copics to color it in. I added some punched snowflakes which I made from Cryogen card stock. I added a bit more sparkle using my Stardust Stickles on the snowflakes and on the snowman and snow. A double satin bow and some white linen thread with a Websters Sparkler finish off my card.
My winter scene was inspired by the Outlaws Twisted Thursday challenge to make a card using "snow people". Well I think this sweet girl is definitely ready to stay out a bit longer bundled up and proud of her snowman! Hee
I hope you play along, we always have some awesome sponsors to offer up goodies to the winner!!!
Have a great Thursday and thanks for stopping by!! *HUGS*
