A Color Challenge at Party Time Tuesday

Coffee of the Day - Caramel Hazelnut

Hello! Y'all are just about the best bloggin' buddies this gal could ever have, ya know?! your super sweet comments have given me the biggest smiles and brought tears of joy to my face. thank you oh, so much! :) Still having seizures over here, but hanging in..... thank you from the bottom of my itty bitty heart!

I want to tell you about the new challenge going on over at Party Time Tuesdays starting today. Jenn has put together a photo inspiration and color challenge that is just gorgeous. Be sure to stop by to see the wonderful projects created by the DT, as I know you will be impressed! :)

I used this cutie snowman from Paper Pretties, one of the sponsors this week, on my card. senti is Create with TLC. this is the first card I've made in forever that doesn't have a lot of patterned paper on it. My friend Anita sent me a beautiful Christmas card using the same embossing folder from SU!, and it reminded me that I hadn't used mine in ages. so out it came and the card just started creating itself. the embossed layer is sprayed with Mr. Huey's white mist and sparkle shimmer spray. the edges were sponged with white craft ink

The main image was accenetd with my spica gel pen. little snow dots were made with a Viva Decor pearl pen. the bg was then stippled around it. the cool thing is that any ink that got onto a snow dot could be gently wiped off with a tissue. neat! the dsp is My Mind's Eye Lime Twist and was punched with a SU! border punch that matches the embossing folder. that is one of the cool-io things about SU! - everything goes together! :) The snowflake was punched from a piece of packaging and sprayed with the same sparkle shimmer spray. the little pink clippie kinda sorta got in the way of the grand spraying of Mr. Huey's, so it has a few little white speckles upon it! ;) oh well..... let's just say it got caught in a blizzard!

I think that sums it up...... please pardon the typos and rambling... my head is so all over the place these days, I'm doing good to get a post done. ha! love ya!

Great card Jennifer, love the colour you chose for your background. The skating snowman looks wonderful and in England we need the 'warm thoughts' you're sending.
