It's Fussy and Fancy Time . . .

Hello Everyone!
It's time once again for a new challenge over at the 
Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog!


Today's theme chosen by our very talented Tone is:

Blue & Brown/Beige Winter

Here is what I've come up with...


I have had this pack of Thomas Kinkade 'Christmas Series' 8x8 designer papers in my stash for many years.  It was purchased from Cornish Heritage Farms and I don't believe they have been in business for a few years now.  It is gorgeous paper of some of his winter images and there are varies sized image sheets which is really nice for card making or scrapbooking.  There are also some coordinating papers in this pack and I've used the dark navy and added snow flakes with white Nuvo Crystal Drops.

The dies I've used to showcase this pretty image are
Sue Wilson - Festive Collection 'Snowflake Corner, Border & Tag ...

Precious Marieke 'Icicles' ...

and Yvonne Creations 'Holly Jolly Nesting Frame'.

Diamond Stickles was also used to add sparkle.

Challenges to share in:
Aud Sentiments Challenge #193 - ATG w/sentiment
CCEE Stampers Challenge #1747 - Holiday card for your stash
Starz Stamps Challenge - Add Some Sparkle

I do hope you will come join in our challenge fun!

See you there!

Thanks so much for stopping by and as always . . .

OMG, look at those gorgeous dies! Don't tempt me. I've succumbed too many times in the last month or two. Love that TK paper. I have a few of the TK stamps which I haven't colored in a while, including one Christmas stamp. They're classics. I also still have several CHF background stamps. Sheesh, too much stuff to ever use! Happy Black Friday!

Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week. Great way to incorporate your paper stock into a card. The die cuts are beautiful and really show off this TK cottage. Lovely.
