Winter Fun

This is my final card for the current AAA Sparkle challenge which I've really enjoyed! The image and sentiment are both freebies from TLC Creations ( Colored the cute image with alcohol markers, then mounted it onto scrapbook paper that features a spattering of simple snowflakes. Then added a nice amount of glitter to make the card sparkle. The sentiment is mounted on a scrap of glitter paper to add more sparkle. (You can see that more clearly in the close up of the image.)

The current Power Poppy Challenge is entitled 12 Days of Christmas. This is my final entry for Day 11, Festive Beverage Tag. The base of the tag is a Door Hanger. The sweet and slightly drowsy looking penguin is named Finn, a wonderful creation from artist Beccy Muir, owner of Beccy's Place Stamps. She has created several Finn digi images, this one is named "Finns Scarf."  The sentiment is cut from an old greeting card. The tag is hanging on a bottle of Peppermint Schnapps. I wanted to take the box of hot chocolate and a bottle of Schnapps to a holiday party. Had asked my hubby to pick up the  Schnapps, but guess I should have specified that we didn't need a vat of the stuff!

My new friend Linda gifted me with a handful of digis of my choice from The Paper Shelter. This digi named "Well Wrapped Up" with her arms spread wide made me think of the wonderful saying "I love you THIS much!" so I made a snowflake card with a Valentine twist. Decided to add a heart on a string to carry out the valentine theme and also to add more depth to the card. I lapped the string behind her thumbs, testing it to make sure it was a little taut when the card was opened, and then taped the heart cutout to the string.  So fun!

  1. Oh wow! What a fantastically unique idea!!! This card is wonderful!!

  2. Great cards Kathy! The sledding image looks a little bit vintage to me, and I love the sparkly snow you added and the wonderful sentiment.
    I love the bottle tag you made for the "vat" of peppermint schnapps, it definitely makes it look festive. Love your little story about hubby's trip to the bottle shop... must be a man thing to buy the biggest item available! I have to admit that I'd take the hot chocolate over the schnapps any day of the week.
    Your final card is my favourite for this post. I just love the way you added the heart on the piece of string. How cool! I'm sure whoever receives it will be surprised and thrilled as she opens her arms. I love it!

  3. Adorable penguin and a perfect little bottle tag to boot!
