Window Dressing

Hello,
So how is your weather??
Did you get the "Artic Blast"??
As I write this (Tuesday the 11th) it is 60 degrees out, but that all is to soon change..
It is to be very, very cold and snowy here on the day you read this post!
Brrrrr....good thing I am inside and staying warm and cozy creating!!


Speaking of creating, it is time again for  a new challenge at the
"Dies R Us" challenge blog and our theme is "Anything Goes Christmas"!
The Design Team has amazing projects once again,....
 pop on over and take a "look see"!!!

I think I was in the vintage/shabby chic mood when I designed this card.
I love everything about it...the colors, the glitter, the vintage image AND
all those wonderful dies I used!!

I added Stampendous "Frantage Shabby White" to my leaves that
are under the poinsettias.  Then I used my heat gun to "melt" it together.
I wish you could see it "up close and personal" as it such neat "stuff" and is really shiney...
makes me want to make some jewelry with it!

Here are all the wonderful dies I used that can be purchased at 
the Dies R Us store

Frosty and Icy, pretty white on white card, Diane. Hope you are feeling better, and staying warm. Lots of glitter sparkling there, I usually end up with as much on me as on my card.
Take care and have a cozy weekend.

This is like an icy, snowy, magical Christmas Wonderland! The scene through the window looks very warm and cozy like I hope you're staying in the arctic blast. We are expecting freezing temps tonight, being on the tail end of the cold front. Our weather doesn't get too exciting here.
