Winter


 Hello, and thanks for stopping to visit. I've decided to label this cardshare Winter, as it's not strictly a Christmas card. The stamp is by Impression Obsession, cling rubber C2891. When I saw him in a sample, he just made me smile. So cute. He's colored with copics, diecut with Spellbinder Ovals, sponged with Memento Sky blue, which gave a sort of 'icy' feel to the look. The scalloped S/B oval mat is from a 6x6 of Cosmo Cricket, Mitten Weather - oldy from a couple years ago. I used the same paper snippet to mat the oval sentiment. The sentiment was stamped with a tiny little stamp (on another snippet)using the Memento Sky Blue - handy - and I used Judikins Aegean Silver to heat emboss. IRL it looks brrrr... swiped the edges with the Sky blue. The cardbase is a burgundy lightweight textured Bazzill, diecut with the smallest of the Grand Big Scalloped Ovals. *To diecut for a card, place top die edge just outside the fold for a hinged card.* There is a snippet of a regular scalloped oval inside for the sentiment. Was trying to clean up some of my snippet mess on the desk, and Voila, there's a piece I can use for this card! Used some silver mirror paper and S/B Build-a-Snowflake 3 to cut the flakes, and a small handpunch for the one on Snowy's left. The silver was also a snippet left from cutting the Memory Box ornament a few posts back. I had some sparkly glass beads that I adhered with Glossy Acents, for a bit of Bling. (been waiting to say that! LOL).  Now I'm going to grab up some 'nog & scurry over to Pixie's Playground, where there's rumors of lots of fun going on, (and I won't say nuffin bout what's goin' in the 'nog, but the chickens are standing by. Remember I'm from the South, and you know what gets brewed back in the Mountain Hills). I've heard talk about tree lights, mulled wine, concerts, so if you come - AND I HOPE YOU WILL! - bring yer own cup! Have a wonderful afternoon. Hugs.
