Hi everyone and how about some Winter Fun! We finally got some snow today after some rain which means ice and that means no school here today! Well at least it's Friday and now McCade gets a three day weekend! I worked yesterday so I'm taking today off so that worked out good since I don't have (or like) to drive in it! =] Well I think I'll be doing some scrappin today since I love to craft when it's stormy outside! And if we get enough snow I think we'll go outside and have some "Winter Fun"! Also over at the Stuck On U Sketches we're having some Winter Fun also. Yep how perfect is that, couldn't have timed this better then to have a "Winter Fun" challenge!
Well I've been seeing lots of these Twisted Easel Cards lately and just had to try one. I've made the traditional Easel cards before but like the "twist" these have. It's a 5 1/2" x 4" size so it's a basic card size and then when it's standing open it's a perfect size I think. I used the Winter Frolic cartridge, love this cart, so many cute images on it. I just got it at the black Friday sale and I can't believe I waited this long to get it! I loved this cute little Bunny on ski's, (he's popped with a little spring so he wiggles, hee hee!) I'm NOT a skier at all, I've tried and just don't like it, lol, I don't like to be cold and wear all the binding clothes to stay warm. Now I do like to sled and in our backyard on our land we have some Great sledding hills and we take the 4-wheeler out and drag the kids back up the hills once they sled down them (so the big kids get to play in the snow too, lol!) so they get to sled down and then sled Up also, lots of Winter Fun!
Here's another view of the card and you can see more of the dimension of the wiggly Bunny. Everything is popped and had to add a bit of 'Frost" on it with some "Crystal" Stickles.
Another view, you can see more of the frost and of course had to add a bit of bling! =] I also did some embossing on the hills and then inked them with a light blue ink to bring out the texture.
And here is a great view of all the dimension.
Now I sure hope you join us over at the SOUS blog, we also have a Great Sponsor to go along with the challenge this month from Stephanie from Whimsical Designs and she has some of her stamps this month ($60 value):
Now you just have to create a NEW project to upload to the SOUS link sharing some Winter Fun with us. You can also enter ANY of the other challenges for the month and it gives you more entries. Also hope you visit the Design Team gals, they are sure enjoying the Winter Fun challenge and they are always inspiring so make sure you check them out and show them some love.
((Hugs)) and Take Care (and stay Warm!) =]
