Practical Scrappers & Winter Wonderland Challenges

Good evening everyone! I hope you've had a great day! I know I have ... I popped in on a friend and had a wonderful visit. She (Lana Edwards) is such a talented crafter, just being around her inspired me to come home and do a little crafting of my own. So with that in mind ... remember the Sugar Nellie image I "couldn't" use on the creation from my last post? Well, I decided to use her on this creation which covers the WINTER theme for the Practical Scrappers Challenge and the THANK YOU theme for the Winter Wonderland Challenge.

My base is a two-ply navy/white card and the designer paper is from a Debbie Mumm holiday pack from JoAnn's. I've torn white cardstock, stacked, and edged with Martha Stewart craft glue and DecoArt Glamour Dust. My THANK YOU sentiment is handwritten spelled out in the red snowflakes punched with a Creative Memories snowflake punch. Willow was colored using Prismacolor Markers and I've used the DecoArt Glamour Dust to add a little extra sparkle to her cuffs & earmuffs (don't think you can see that in the photo).


Thanks to these new (to me) challenge blogs and a good friends ... I finally feel like my mojo is back! YEAH!!! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
