Thank you for joining us today on the "It's Cold Outside Blog Hop."
If you arrived here from Lissa Marie's blog, or landed here by chance, welcome -- and please hop over to the start of the hop at Z's blog (http://scrappinwithz.blogspot.com/). Zenita will tell you about the blog candy available for followers on this wintry trail.
I'm sure somewhere in what's supposed to be winter it's cold outside, but here in suburban Philadelphia, truth be told, it's unseasonably mild. The shine's shining and it's still nice enough outside to go without mittens and woolies.
Yes, that's unusual for us. And yes, most of us consider ourselves blessed.
I suppose there are some snowbunnies out there who might disagree ... but I detest snow. It may be fun to look at for a day or two especially if I have nowhere I need to go and can spend my time crafting. But after it's dingy and yellowed (ahem!), sloppy and slushy, no thank you.
So I've used my imagination this year to put on my fuzzy mittens and drink a cup of hot chocolate, and make this card for those who think the world of pretty white fresh-fallen snow:
I made this three-paneled card to feature two of the cutest snow fairies I've ever seen. They are digi-images from Mo's Designs. I colored them with Copic markers, and paper pieced in complementing colors. Liquid Pearl gave the snow on the wings dimension and sparkle. Stickles lightly applied to snowflakes gave them a magical touch. The stripe of glitter is double sided 1/8" tape adhered to the paper then glittered with fine Martha Stewart glitter. I strung the beautiful snowflake between panels 1 and 3, using fishing line mounted underneath the art. The snowflake is cut from glitter paper using a Cheery Lynn die. The sentiment in the center is computer-generated with snowflake art by DaFont.
Please jump on over to Anita's blog next to continue shooshing down the snow-covered path. I welcome your comments, and hope you'll come back often, for inspiration, a little story telling, and friendship.
