Let it Snow

Not really! The last thing I want to see is snow, I’m loving our fantastic weather of late.  The weather is absolutely wonderful – the past couple of weeks have been warm with little or no wind (which is a rarity for us), maybe it is Mother Natures way of rewarding us for the winter that is yet to come!

If you haven’t seen it already, there is a new challenge site starting today – Digi Design Challenge Blog.  I’ve used Di’s digi images for over almost two years now and I love them all – they are all so cute.  The challenge too is super easy – Anything Goes, you don’t need to use a Di’s Digidownload image either to play along but if you have one why not use it?

For my card; I used two digital stamps Background Winter and Loving This White Stuff.  I colored both of the stamps with copics and highlighted the snow on the trees with DecoArt’s Snow Writer and for a little more sparkle topped it with Stickles.  I used Stickles on the roof and on the ground.

I made the sentiment Let it Snow with my graphics program – feel free to use it, just link back to me if you do as I’d love to see how you use it!  Now I have that song stuck in my head.

I challenged myself and used a vellum paper instead of the usual DP for my background paper, I love the soft colors it shows.  Since tape can show when using vellum, I used two snowflake brads to attach the vellum to the card base – I then added two more snowflakes to make it look like they were placed on the card randomly.

I hope you enjoy a sneak peek at one of my Christmas cards for this year. Thanks for stopping by – Dee!
