more .... Winter Wishes

I think I'm skipping right over Christmas and going to straight snow and warm, cozy cards.  Even in the South, the cold weather has come in wayyyy to early!

I'm using the image WINTER FRIENDS from From the Heart Stamps.  I'm participating in their weekly sketch challenge with a twist #87.  I don't know what constitutes decorating the inside but I always try to add a "little something".   Not much color in snow so I used pearl snowflakes, diamond sickles and a green/blue plaid scarf to give added interest and texture.

  1. So fun.... Love that darling snowman and the great designers papers!

  2. LOVE the snowman and blue/green colors! Paper are perfect and especially like what you you did with the border on the inside!


  3. Gorgeous Cely, absolutely gorgeous! I love that darling snowman. I might have to play along, that's one awesome sketch.


  4. I love this card! I may have to try my hand at it.

  5. Fabulous card inside and out Cely. I have been watching the snow reports from over there with interest as we often get the tale ends of your weather systems!
    Warm hugs, Jackie xx

  6. As I go through my inbox glancing at all the emails from blogs that I subscribe to and automatically giving each project about one second of my time before I delete them, I always come across one that makes me stop and say, wow, that's pretty! And I want to examine it further and read more. Yours always do that for me, Cely!

    This card is so stunning! I love the navy and white color scheme and the angled patterned paper really caught my eye!

    I've been on the hunt for some really pretty Christmas paper. I can't seem to find any I like in Michaels or Joannes. I think I'm going to search the net for this set!

    Thanks for the inspiration (again!)

  9. Terrific card, Cely! Loving the snowman and the snowflakes. Of course, I adore snowmen year round even though we never have any snow out here on the West Coast.
