Winter Blues



Well, I'm not feeling the winter blues, but that is the challenge today over at Stamptacular.  We'd like to see your creations using a winter theme and only shades of blue.  I decided to use this cute image I got at Whimsy Stamps called, " N'ice Friends."  I think this is the cutest snowman.  I had so much fun coloring him.  I decided to use some leftover pieces of sparkly felt.  These are actually scraps from my Popcorn award.  It makes me so happy to use up scraps.  I also used the sketch over at Splitcoast this week.  I really love the sketch so you will see it again in the following week.  My card is finished off with some beautiful PTI ribbon.  I love their dotted satin ribbon! Because I used ribbon, I will also be entering this into the DCRU challenge which ends today.

  So are you ready to play?  Our sponsor this week is InStyle Stamps.  The winner of this challenge will recieve 4 FREE digi images of their choice.  As always, you can check out the design team for some great inspiration to get you started.  They are located on my left sidebar for your convenience.

  Hope you can play along and chase away any winter blues you may have.  If you've got snow send it my way, ok?
