Fresh Snow


After just one spring card, I'm back to another winter project! I just love this 'Winter Wonder' collection by Bella Blvd! I've lost count of the number of projects I've done with this line so far!

I really enjoy working with these bright colors! They're so cheerful and fun!

The 'brand new snow' phrase I used on this card was one sticker that I thought would be fun cut apart 'ransom' style. I added them to the card with pop dots for dimension.

I added a few trinkets from my stash, the glittered snowflake is from Jesse James and the Rhinestones are from K & Company.

So...our trip to the state fair was lovely! We had a record high temp of 85 degrees! Lots of people at the fair for a Monday! We always go on a weekday...I can't image the mob on the weekends! We really enjoyed the gardens, the food, crafts and people watching...a continuous parade!

I got to hold a baby chick! I always enjoy that being the animal lover I am! Those precious little babies fall asleep in your hands in a couple seconds flat!

Have any of you scrapbookers or card makers checked out the paper crafts at your local fair? I always enjoy doing that, but I'm amazed that the scrapbook pages look like those we used to make 10 years ago? I don't understand why the papers, products or designs aren't current? Can anyone enlighten me on this?

Anyway, lets all have a fantastic day! We're not supposed to get as warm as yesterday, but it's supposed to be beautiful and and I intend to soak it up because a storm is heading our way tonight and tomorrow we have rain in the forecast.

You are SO rocking this winter line, Kathy! I just LOVE this card! Such bright and happy colors that make me think more of summer, but SO work for winter, and I love that! A bit of the unexpected! :) Love how you cut apart that sentiment. Such a cute little "ransom" note.
I know what you mean about the paper crafts at the fair....a friend of mine just posted photos of her entries she made to her fair, versus the ones that won, and I was just amazed. She got a couple of honorable mentions, but most of her stuff didn't place at all.......and the ones that won looked like they were from another century. Go figure! Must be some old men judging.
