Winter Wishes

Happy Wednesday!

Ugh...what dreary, dark, and dismal weather we have had today!  Great day to be a recluse!  Hope you are all doing well today, and staying warm and dry. 

Lesley at "Always Playing with Paper" posted her Merry Monday Challenge #4 the week, and I heard it calling to me this afternoon.  I'm always trying to figure out a way to get a jump on our Christmas cards, and this is a Christmas challenge blog, so hey...what have I got to lose?  Liked the sketch, need Christmas cards, and had this pretty image from Doodle Pantry all colored up, so to the paper bin went I...lol... 


BoBunny DP, Snowfall Collection, Image and Sentiment from Doodle Pantry, Marvy Snow Pen, Copic Markers, scissors and scalloped scissors.

Short post, I know, but that's all I have for you today!

Thanks for stopping by!

I'll be round this evening to see what you've been up to!

Hugs and smiles,
Patti J.

OK, I'm thinking you thought the rain, snow, sleet forecast was really going to turn into 12" of snow from the looks of your beautiful card! I would like one pretty snow this winter and then it can be gone...Hope you're doing well and your foot is better.

Patti, that image looks great with your snow on it. The dimension makes it look like real snow. All we've been getting here is RAIN! Sure could use a snow day off from school. :-)

Bonnie Weiss said...

Maybe the snow on your card will inspire Mother Nature to turn all of this nasty rain into snow ... cute card.
