Snowman Thanks Card

Last one, I promise!   This is a q&e make using the Winter Woodland snowman.  I used to make this one for my students after Christmas and had to redesign it in Design Space this year.

  The background paper was printed using my Imagine.  (Looove this snowflake design and use it all the time!)

Now to get to work on the OHM children's January treats.   : )   Thanks for visiting with me today.  : )  Christine

Winter Fun

It's happened again!  The Christmas wall decor is packed away in the attic,  it's too early to get out the Valentine stuff, and there's a great expanse of nothingness above my mantel!

Fortunately, this wonderfully shiny foil paper jumped into my cart at J's and an idea was born for the challenges over at FCCB and Exploring Cricut that would help fill the void.

Here it is!  I used Heritage for the little village of houses covered in snow, and Winter Lace for the snowflakes.  The phrase 'Winter Fun' comes from Winter Woodland.  

This was SO difficult to photograph because of the shiny paper!  (It didn't help that I have Master J. here today and he wanted to be in all the pictures!)

Pop over to FCCB here to see all the wonderful projects in the Challenge Me Monday #193 Winter Fun challenge.

Don't forget to visit Exploring Cricut here for the Winter Wonderland challenge.

Thanks for visiting with me today!  Gotta run!   Someone is demanding that I take him down to feed the chickens.  He ADORES the rooster, Barney!  : ) Christine

Here in the PNW we are trying, like the rest of the country, to keep warm! I did tear myself away from the wood stove this afternoon to make another attempt at a floating easel card using my E.  ( I just LOVE this design by Karen B. at Sizzix but don't have the necessary dies to create a card the 'official' way!)

I had in mind this week's challenge at Cardz TV and the cold, cold, weather reminded me of a time long ago when we lived in Northern Alberta.  In winter, the Fire Dept. constructed a skating rink on a vacant lot close to our house and flooded it.  Every day after school it was filled with children practicing figure skating, playing skate tag, and having a glorious time.  Later, the ice hockey players would take over the rink and we'd hear the thud of the puck hitting the boards until late at night. 

This ice skater cut from Winter Woodland is a favorite of mine. Her dress is a scrap of my precious Theresa Collins paper flocked to resemble the furry outfits of the little girls in their 'tippy toe' skates.  I flocked and sparkled the tree too. 

I am HOPING Santa brings me a lightbox this year so that I can get some reasonable pictures of my stuff!  So, once again, my apologies for the quality of the photos.  I could NOT get a picture that didn't show the snowflake lines!  You can hardly see them in real life.   Aghhh!  Thanks for visiting with me today.  Stay warm!  : ) Christine
