Winter Friends

Good morning all.

WOW was I tired yesterday.  My Aunts funeral was sad but beautiful on Wednesday.  She had a lovely send off.  That travelling though really wore me down though, but I made it there and back in one piece :)

I have a really fun card to share with you today.  I love this image, such fun to work with.  It is from Bugaboo and it is called Winter friends.

I coloured the scene in with Pro-Markers and the papers are Magnolia 12 x 12s.  I die cut my snowflakes with a Magnolia die.  I stamped the sentiment with a free stamp that I got from a crafting magazine ages ago.
The big gem is from the works and everything else is just from my stash.

  14. Adorable card with adorable images. This is just so darn cute! The color of the photo reminds me of what my pics looked like when I took my photos outside and in too much sunshine. I now take them in the house, near a window, but not in or too close to the sun. Thanks for joining us at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'! Hugs, Gail
