Hmmm...it was 82 here yesterday, already up to 76 this afternoon. I've been running around in capri jeans, short sleeves and barefoot (sandals when I go out). Yet the calendar and Sharon say it's still winter, so we're definitely having some crazy south Texas weather. :) For this week's Stamp Simply Challenge Sharon wants us to make any type of card that says winter. If we can do that without using a snowman or snowflake, all the better! I actually had all these pieces cut and colored since before Christmas, they just never made it any further. Willow sitting in her armchair enjoying some hot chocolate, colored with Prismas/baby oil, attached to a stack of CS then on a background of Winterberry DP. Stamped the Verve sentiment directly on the green CS. Cuttlebug scrolls were put on burgundy CS, and gold vellum cut with MS punch. The buttons in the corners are left over from a suit I made over 15 years ago. Looks wintery to me! : ) This card will also serve as my entry for Whiff of Joy Challenge #13, following the sketch Heather provided.
