Hi everyone!

I'm never ready for winter but I love these little images! The Flower Soft really makes the snow look so real! It even gives it a little frosted icicle effect!

The images are Craft Lounge *Tweet Winter Wishes*, stamped using Mememto Tuxedo Black! Then colored with copics!
The snowman was done using fun flock! The Flower Soft was used on the rails and the ground!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a marvelous evening!

Good afternoon everyone! Hope you are all having a marvelous day!

This is for the Clean and Simple Challenge on Splitcoast found HERE!

The frame was made using Spellbinders Nestibilities! The sprigs of grain were stamped and colored with copics! The pumpkins were stamped, colored with copics and cut out! After coloring the pumpkins I brushed on some Pearl Glimmer Mist! I think it looks like there is morning dew on the pumpkins! The background layer was brushed using Glimmer Mist's *yellow daisy*!

This is for todays Inspiration Challenge found HEREThis is the picture that inspired me!

Stamped the sweet little owl and branch using su Choc. Chip and colored with su reinkers and an aqua brush! The background was stippled using su cameo coral. I then took a small su background stamp and lightly added su creamy caramel and then over stamped that with moonlight white! I cut a piece of white c/s and sprayed it with Glimmer Mist (Suede) for the card base! The Glimmer Mist give a beautiful shimmery look to the card base! Hard to see in the photo!
The inside sentiment says Rest Your Wings!
