I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families and filled your bellies with as much turkey and fixings as you could fit in them! I know I did! LOL But I did work some of it off on Sunday because we had some wood delivered to our place and The Man, his parents and I stacked it all nice and neat. Who'd have thought this city girl would be living the country life now?! Hehe Worlds apart I tell ya!
I didn't spend a whole lot of time in the craft room this weekend, but I did manage to squeek out this card to share with you today.
When I saw Torico's snowman card in those soft, muted colors, I couldn't resist creating my own version using those beautiful tones! Using that fabulous Season's Greetings set, I colored it in with my aquapainter brush and Antique Linen, Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Inks. Then I used a combination of SU's Regal Rose, Ruby Red and Cranberry Crisp inks for their scarfs and hats. Then I used a Label's One Nestie from Spellbinders to cut them out and while the die was still on the panel, I sponged around them with more Antique Linen and Tea Dye ink.
The layout is a quilt style one I use from time to time because it's great for using up my left over scraps. Which was perfect since I used papers from vintage Basic Grey and Cosmo Cricket collections (I think they were the Wassail and Wanted collections)! Each piece was sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and machine stitched to some Bazzil Bling cardstock. As a finishing touch, I added some glitter to the snowmen with the help of a Quickie Glue Pen.
There She Goes challenge for this week TSG83 is to create a card for the kidlets. Sadly, I forgot this minor detail while making my card over the weekend, but you still have time! Just create your card and leave a link to it in the Inlinz thingy at the bottom of the TSG challenge post. You could win yourself a gift certificate to the TSG store just by entering! :)
Oh, and if you're wondering why I called this post 'Part 1'; it's because I'll have another Christmas themed card to show you later this week! :)
Thanks so much for popping in today!
