Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!
I really need to get started on my holiday cards and when I saw the challenge at 52 Card Christmas Throwdown to use a Nordic Theme, I had to give it a try.

Happy Monday to You!
I’m here to share an idea with you to use those digi images we all have in a non-traditional way. I’m casing an idea I saw done by Pyselfroken (sorry no link available) but I wanted to give her the credit for my project.
I don’t know what the weather is like where you live but we definitely have a feeling of fall in the air. The temps at night have been near freezing – the trees have already started to change colors. So much for global warming!
With fall in the air, I opted to make a fall centerpiece. I started off by cutting strips of orange cardstock and attaching them at the ends with a brad to allow me to move them into a circular shape. I adhered the pumpkin on to a circle base, glued various flowers to the base and added some die cut leaves. I wound some green cardstock to make the stem and glued it to the top of the pumpkin, added a die cut leaf and a ribbon.
I printed Squirrel (it is a Catch the Bug Anything but a Card inspiration after all :-)) onto cardstock and also a mirror image and glued the two together as the centerpiece can be seen from all sides and I wanted the image to be seen on both sides of the cutout. I added a tealight to give the pumpkin and inner glow. If you try this idea, please use a tealight as I’m afraid a regular tealight would probably burn your centerpiece and after all of that hard work, I hate to see it go up in smoke!
Thanks so much for the visit and I hope I’ve inspired you to try this idea! Dee

Sketch Saturday – Sketch #327 (I flipped it 180 degrees)
I did a bit of paper piecing for her gown and cape, I added some copics to the cape to make it stand out from the gown – easy, peasy!
It’s not your typical belated birthday card, but it is perfect for that diva we all seem to know 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by – I can’t wait to see your take on this weeks Challenge at Catch the Bug! Dee
