In the meadow.....

ETA- A winning card over at the Moxie Fab World and here is what Cath , the trends editor at Papercrafts magazine has to say about this winner .....

To Quote..'Cath Edvalson, Trends Editor for Paper Crafts Magazine"
Moxie Fab Alert: I swear there is actual magic in this card. I can feel the warmth coming from the glowing house, the chill in the winter air, and the smell of the fresh snow that falls so softly. But mostly I can feel the joy that was experienced in the building of that cuddly little snowman...and perhaps the joy that was experienced in the building of this card..."
 
.........what an honor for this simple creation of mine !




Sharing a card I made this afternoon,inspired by Papertrey Ink's MIM#129- Crayon resist technique.
I used a white crayon to color in the fence and the house and for the snowflakes in the sky and then went about coloring around them ...almost like using masking fluid, but much less mess and faster!


Added the scarf, hat and features to the snowman. Also sprinkled salt on the sky area while the paint was wet and some stickles for holiday sparkle!


 Stamps- Papertrey Ink- In the meadow- snowman, Boards and beams- house and fence and sentiment, Door to Door- wreath

Also sharing with Moxie Fab World-Holiday card challenge

........Keeping this post short ..gotta get dinner on the table!
