ANOTHER LITTLE TASTE OF WINTER

Hi all!!! I thought I would share another wintry card with you today - I used this one in one of my recent workshops where they requested winter cards. I used one of my favorite sets called Holiday Lineup - the images in this set totally make me smile!!! I had fun coloring these guys too because I did not use the usual colors you see in a holiday card. And, if you click on the card, you can see where I added some bling with Dazzling Diamonds to the beards and their little hat tops - they are soooo cute!! The base of the card is using Kraft (told you I am stuck on this!) The pattern paper is actually from the Thoroughly Modern line but I thought it was just perfect with the Bermuda Bay and just yummy when the chocolate chip taffeta ribbon is added!! And, I used my Big Shot Top Notes Die which I love!! The sentiment is punched with the new Modern Label punch which I had to have and use all the time!! All in all, I was pretty happy with this card, and they really like it which is all that matters, LOL!!! I am off to work today - busy day with the first thing on my agenda a press conference and town hall meeting - all before 8am!!! But, I LOVE my job, so it's all good - heehee!!! I will be back tomorrow to show you some more fun holiday cards - thanks so much for stopping by!!
