The Sisterhood of Crafter's Challenge

Hello Everyone!
Since we are in the month of January and the snow if flying here in N.E. Ohio ... what better challenge theme to have today at The Sisterhood than . . .

(make a Winter card/project)

As I was doing my 'after holidays clean up' in my crafting cave, I came upon these three images laying on my work table so for your inspiration today, I not only made ONE card ... but I made THREE!  LOL!

  My image stamp is by Inkadinkado.  After stamping it onto white cs with Versafine black ink,  I used Prisma Pencils and Gamsol to color in this love scene.  Sparkle was added to the tree & roof using Quickie Glue and Deco Art Glamour Dust.  Blue chalk was added using a makeup applicator to create the sky.

 This precious bird image comes from a collage sheet called "Christmas Birds" found HERE at Nicecrane Designs.  The background paper is from a DCWV 'Winter' Mat Stack and the snow flakes & icicle border are Martha Stewart punches.  Diamond Stickles was added for sparkle.

 This image was created using the "Snowy Background Technique" that I learned from Selma Stevenson.  Again I used Martha Stewart punches to create the snowflakes and icicle border.  Added a sentiment and Viola!  Card complete!

We would LOVE to see what you create with this fun challenge theme.
I'll be watching for your entry over at The Sisterhood of Crafter's and then I'll stop by and leave you some love on your creation at your blog!
