Winter Birthdays

Hello there & happy Sunday! I can't believe the weekend is almost over... can you? I shopped all day with my 16 year old DD yesterday we set out at 10 & didn't get home until after 4 what a long day. Of course this was clothes shopping & not craft shopping so it wasn't nearly as fun as it could be but we had a good time together none the less :)

Okay today I'm sharing a card I made a few weeks back that I forgot to post, it's for winter birthdays... I have a winter birthday (next Friday to be exact ;) ) so I can relate & of course my birthday wouldn't be right if there wasn't any snow & guess what they are calling for a big storm this week here in the Midwest but hopefully they are wrong... we'll see. On to my card:

For these I used an image from Clear Dollar Stamps called Brrrthday Snowman, a new Sizzix embossing folder which is becoming one of my favs, Nestabilities, EK Success punches & bling oh & they are colored with Copics.

Thanks for coming by today!

Happy Saturday!

The weekend finally! I'm so glad, what a long week it was for me how about you? Today I'd like to share a card I made using an image that I think was free in December from Di's Digi Designs, she really does some great work!

A closer view:

Is this image not one of the cutest? It was super fun to color too! I think she was originally meant for a Christmas image but appeared to me to be versatile so I turned her into a birthday card :) I've been controlling myself a bit so I haven't purchased any new ones yet but I've been stalking, she has a super cute freebie she's giving away now so you may want to head on over there if you think this one is cute!

Thanks for coming by, hope you have a great weekend!
