Let It Snow, Brrrrr!

Good Morning,
It's time for the weekly challenge over at 613 Avenue Create. http://avenue613.blogspot.com/ It's always an anything goes challenge with a optional theme.  This week's optional theme is Winter Blues.  I created 2 cards for this one and we have 3 wonderful sponsors this week: http://www.eurekastamps.com/ , http://nicecranedesigns.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=99&zenid=bk9b9a03a55kseqdq63sno4ru2 , and http://www.fitztown.com/


For my first card I chose Snow Scene Circle digi from Eureka.  DP is cardstock from my stash, sentiment is from BoBunny Snowfall, cuttlebug embossing folder Forest Branches, Memory Box die Alexa Border, Die-Namics die Fancy Flourish, ribbon May Arts, Twinklets diamond dust, bling stash, white gel pen.
Copics used:  C00, C1, BV20, B02, E23, E29.
 I am entering this card in a few challenges this week as follows:

The second card is a digi from Nicecrane called Winter.  Very vintage looking so I used Graphic45's Place in Time collection (January) and Kraft cardstock.  I really like this color combination.  Tim Holtz distress ink Vintage Photo, Tim Holtz die Festive Greenery, Stampendous Diamond dots Turquoise and Silver.

  5. Hi Barb, and thanks so much for joining our challenge this week. I live in Las Vegas, but I will be experiencing the term "Brrrr" soon enough. I'm visiting Minnesota later this month. It's plenty cold there! I appreciate you stopping by to play along in our challenge, and hope to see you again soon.
