Brr cold out there

Boy, brr cold….it sure was chilly last night and this morning.  You can definitely tell the cold is in the air.  Here are two snow cards for the season and it’s part of the Come and Play Card Buffet.

They are made just a little bit different in how I made the background.  I stamped the background panel first generation on the right card and 2nd generation on the left card.

I wanted to see which look I liked better.  As I liked them both, I’ll offer both options for this.    I spritzed with some pearl shimmer mist to add to the look.

The snowflake flourish on the card is from a retired set as is the sentiment.  I kept the sent because I really liked it.

The snowflakes are cut out from the Artistry Cricut Cartridge.  You can buy just the digital images or the physical cartridge.  I like that you have the choice or option.  =)



I finished off the card with sparkles for embellishments.  Take your clear sparkles and use your alcohol markers to color them the colors you need for your project.  I love this flexibility.

You can see that I used some clear and some that I colored blue!  I think the captures the “brrr..cold” sentiments I felt last night when I let the dog out!  Come and join us this Saturday for the CropTastic time.  Do the  CPCard Buffet and make some Christmas cards!!


Sangria, please

The colors of Sangria are rich and warm, which in my humble opinion, is perfect for Fall!   The Workshop on The Go is beautiful for this.
