Warmer Winter

Happy Monday! We dodged a bullet with the storm. We had a little ice here and there but it wasn't too bad. It could have been much worse. But I was in a winter mood tonight so that's what my card is all about.


Over the weekend, I was away from home and I couldn't drag all my card making supplies with me so I took some scraps from my scrap box and my square punch and I made some backgrounds for cards. I got this idea from Beccy's Place. This one was made from all blue winter paper and I had the perfect new set from From the Heart Stamps Stamp of the Month Little Snowman to play with. Love the sentiment and that little snowman is just adorable. I inked the sentiment with two colors of distress ink: peacock feathers and salty ocean. I colored the snowman with Copic markers and embellished it with Crystal Stickles. I left it pretty simple so the scrap background would be really apparent.

I am entering these challenges:

Thanks for stopping by. We are headed back for the deep freeze this week so I hope you are staying warm. Make it an awesome week!
