From our House...to Yours!

****ETA**** Did you notice the change? I put up a new banner for my blog to ring in the Holiday Season! I had a lot of fun making it and I hope it brings inspiration and *JOY* to your life!


Yes...another "Winter Post" card. This is just a little sneak peek into the project that I have been working on this evening. I can't photograph it until tomorrow, so you will have to wait. I used my delicious "Holiday Treasures" DSP again also. I am really loving it if you can't tell. LOL! I decided to color my skating couple image with copics this time and have to say that I don't like it as well as the blender pens. I am so limited in colors that I can't shade the way I would like. I took a trip to Hobby Lobby today to pick up something I needed for some design work that I really should be finishing and picked up a few other items. I don't know about you, but a few new goodies here and there really help me get in the mood to create. I picked up some fun stuff including "Vintage Photo" distress ink by Ranger. I did all of my sponging with that. It gave it just the right bit of aging that I was looking for. I also added a few buttons from my stash and some Martha Stewart glitter that I got from Michaels a year or so ago. It is a coarse glitter that I really like. Of course it needed some ribbon so I used some Kiwi Kiss striped grosgrain from SU! for the finishing touch. I will be showing you the project I have been working on tomorrow and then I promise...no more Winter Post (for a few days at least)!!! Thanks for fluttering by!

Kelly, this card is truly spectacular! You've got so many wonderful details - and they all work so perfectly together! That chunky glitter around the card's edges is amazing! Love the stitching and buttons too!
