Happy Winter

Hello!  I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas.  I had to work Christmas Eve, but I didn't mind it because I enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere at the store for a change, and I was also able to get a lot of work done.  Our church didn't have a Christmas Eve Service and our daughter (who is a professional singer in Chicago) had to sing at a Midnight Mass, and spend Christmas Day with her in-laws, so we won't be celebrating Christmas till Saturday...then the fun begins!  Anyway, it's freezing cold here in Wisconsin, so I thought I'd make a winter card using some Daydream Designs images and papers.

I started with a old sketch from 'I Love Sketches'.  The images are from Daydream Designs Colorized Digi Set 'Snowbabies'.  The papers are digital papers from Daydream Designs 'Winter Chill Digi Paper Pack', and 'Winter Flakes Digi Paper Pack'.  I stamped a retired sentiment from the Stampin Up! set 'Happy Winter' over the snowflake image from the 'Snowbabies' set.  I then put Stickles on the snow and the snowballs.  The girl and snowball stash were cut out and popped up on dimensionals.  The snowflakes are pre-cut felt embellies found in the dollar bins at JoAnn's Fabrics and Crafts.  Pom-Pom trim, ribbon, and adhesive crystals were added for embellishment.

Have a great day and a Happy Winter!  Amy
