Let It Snow

I must be dreaming of a little cooler weather, although we have had pretty decent weather here in my part of California.  I just want  to give a little shout out to those who have not been so blessed by old Mother Nature.  I hope things will get better soon. If only we could tip the US just a bit and allow the flooding to run toward Texas some and give them a little relief from the horribly hot and now firey summer. 

I don't think I have ever played along with the Sketch For You ToTry (SFYTT) sketch challenge (although,  I check it out every month).  I decided it was about high time I gave Jen's awesome sketches a try so I jumped in with both feet and combined it with the yummy colors from the CR84FN37 challenge. 

As you can see, I took some creative liberties with the sketch.  The truth be told, I will usually print the sketch or take Mr. Lappy into the studio with  me, but not this time.  I was sure my oh so photograpic memory (not) would get me by.  Hmmm, maybe I should re-think that approach.  :)

Not alot of uber cool techniques going on with this card, however  I did use the beautiful Memory Box Bianca snowflake die to create a ghost effect on the kraft background by laying the die randomly on the card and tapping it here and there with Tea Dye distress ink.  I wasn't looking forward to adding bits and pieces of foam tape to the back of thes snowflake so I just sandwiched it between two turquoise buttons.  The smaller is the one you can see and underneath is one a bit bigger.  I did pull the twine between both of the buttons hoping this will hold the snowflake in place.  So far, so good.  The sentiment is from the Verve Holiday Phrases set.  Love the simple font Julee used in this little set. 

One last note, I added a "For Sale" page to my blog.  You can find it at the top left of my blog and I would love for you to check out my list.  I will be adding things often as I wade through my studio.

See you soon,
