Winter Blues


Hi everyone - hope you're enjoying your weekend.

Today I would like to show you a very simple card I made using one of the adorable LotV Christmas stamps  that I bought last autumn but never got to use due to my time out ... so today it is getting its first inking. I was also inspired by the fact that there are also still a few Christmas & winter challenges around, plus one or two on the theme of "blues", so I thought I would tie those themes together.


Stamps: LotV, Crafter's Companion sentiment;
Media: Promarkers;
Paper: Forever Friends "Kraft Notes";
Tools: Joy Craft snowflake dies.


Challenges:
ABC Christmas - A is for Anything Christmas
CRAFT #241 - Christmas
Pile It On #2 - Holidays / Celebrations
Cute Card Thursday #303 - Cold & Frosty
Simon Says Wednesday - Ice Inspiration
Totally Papercrafts #201 - Winter Wonderland
Winter Wonderland - Monochrome
Fussy & Fancy #105 - Monochrome
Crafty Cardmakers #107 - Bear With Me
Without Words - Spots or Stripes
Creative Craft #26 - Anything Goes
Lili of the Valley - Anything Goes

That's all from me for today - enjoy the rest of your weekend!
